New Lyrics Original Lyrics
The word made flesh among men appearing
Into a stable crude He was born
The king of all yet sacrificing heaven
For love of me He died upon a tree
Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer's gone, and all the flowers are dying
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and I must bide.
The lord of all appearing as a baby
To Mary born just like you and me
He came to save all men for we are sinners
And yet we took and nailed Him to a tree
But come ye back when summer's in the meadow
Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow
'Tis I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.
One day He'll come, a warrior for his people
Into the sky with angels all around
All men shall kneel before the Lord of Glory
Upon the day, that final trumpet shall sound
And if you come, when all the flowers are dying
And I am dead, as dead I well may be
You'll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an "Ave" there for me.
My lord will come with thousand, million angels
A mighty warrior, King of all there is
The mighty God, the Prince of Peace, Messiah,
Yet in his hands remains proof of His love
And I shall hear, tho' soft you tread above me
And all my dreams will warm and sweeter be
If you'll not fail to tell me that you love me
I'll simply sleep in peace until you come to me.
I thank you, Jesus, for I know you love me
Your love, forgiveness, they will never cease
You'll be the King, majestic in your righteousness
My Lord, my God, Messiah, Prince of Peace
 
My lord, my God, You're coming for your people
And when you touch Your foot upon the mount
You'll vanquish death, bring peace to those who sorrow
Your praise we'll sing, for ages without count
