God of your fathers (V)

#CHORUS#
For I am the God of your fathers
I carried them all of their days of old
And the land that I gave to your fathers
Is given again to thee

Fair was the wind gentle the breeze
That brought  my ships to the isles of the sea
Strong was the faith of my Israel seed
When first I planted them here
I planted them here in the isles of the sea

#CHORUS# 
Fair was the wind, gentle the breeze
That carried the Orangemen to battles of war
Red was the soil of the land that was theirs
For their children they bled for their children
The poppies of red that their sons might be free

For I am the God of your soldiers
The wounded the dead the brave and the free
Believe that the God of your soldiers
Will fight once again for thee

Where is the wind where is the breeze
Where is the courage of your young men
Turn once again back to the God of your fathers
The God of your fathers
The God of your fathers whose waiting for you

For I am the God of your young men
The fearful the weak the deaf and the blind
And i'll breathe once again on your young men
Until all of their fear is gone
#CHORUS#
