Land of my fathers lyrics

Land Of My Fathers Lyrics

  • This land of my fathers is dear to meLand of poets and singers, and people of statureHer brave warriors, fine patriotsShed their blood for freedom

  • (Chorus:)Land! Land! I am true to my land!As long as the sea serves as a wall for this pure, dear landMay the language endure for ever.

  • Old land of the mountains, paradise of the poets,Every valley, every cliff a beauty guards;Through love of my country, enchanting voices will beHer streams and rivers to me.

  • (Chorus)

  • Though the enemy have trampled my country underfoot,The old language of the Welsh knows no retreat,The spirit is not hindered by the treacherous handNor silenced the sweet harp of my land.

  • (Chorus)
