Oh Grace just hold me in your arms
and let this moment linger,
They'll take me out at dawn
and I will die
With all my love I'll place
this wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love
for we must say goodbye
Now I know it's hard for you
my love to ever understand
The love I share for these brave men,
my love for my dear land
But when Padraic called me
to his side down in the GPO
I had to leave my own sick bed,
to him I had to go
Oh Grace just hold me in your arms
and let this moment linger,
They'll take me out at dawn
and I will die
With all my love I'll place this
wedding ring upon your finger
There won't be time to share our love
for we must say goodbye
