I Thank The Lord, For Being Born A Celtic Man - Poem by Daniel McDonagh

I thank the Lord,
For being born a Celtic man
Raised on the stories
Of heroes and legends,
Were Parkhead has been
A cathedral of song
Were Jock Stein’s men
Were welcomed home from Lisbon.

I thank the Lord,
For being a born Celtic man
As the Gallowgate walk
Has been shared with friends
Who celebrated the pride
Of wearing the green & white
as they sung for Celtic
And Ireland’s fight.

I thank the Lord,
For being a born Celtic man
And for witnessing the goals
Scored by Henrik Larsson,
And with the grace of God
And the faith of my team,
I will die a happy man,
Following the Hoops of green.
