The glorious day of Aughrim's field
The day of chivalry
We'll ne'er forget, when helm and shield
Were bless'd with victory!
Like wildfire flashed our engines, then
Red havoc spread dismay;
Chorus:
Up, rouse ye, then, my merry Orangemen
It is King William's day!
2. To blast the torch of Liberty.
Which our brave sires once fired.
False James-the slave of bigotry-
With Papist foes conspired.
But history's page tells where and when
We made them run away;
Chorus:

3. Another Boyne may have its fray;
Another Aughrim rise;
Another Londonderry may
Show where its martyr lies
And should such scenes blaze forth again
Stand close upon that day;
Chorus:
