'Prentice Boys of Derry

Sons of the men who nobly stood,
Strong in their great defender,
And shed in freedom's cause their blood.
"Midst shouts of "No Surrender!"

Prove worthy of their deathless fame
And of the badge you carry
And be in spirit as in name
True "Prentice Boys of Derry."

Still celebrate the glorious day,
When Heaven, in tender pity,
Drove all your fathers' foes away
And save the "Maiden City".

Still hoist' as in the days of old,
Your flag on yonder tower
Nor ever let it's Crimson fold
Be furled by priestly power.
