From Paris Cardiff Rome
The children of her vigil safe
And each one counted home

The mighty red sea rolls in waves
Her sailors of renown

The pulse was fit to burst

Our prayers by God were heard

No grander theme was writ

And now we want a sixth

The finest called to play
But they’ll all be there in the kop
At Anfield saturdays

We sleep in perfect peace
A silver cloud to chance upon
A golden dawn to greet

Eternally ensures
Her perch upon the redmens chests
Her foot upon the ball.
