WEEK 4- SATURDAY 30th NOVEMBER 5 pm

Calling for a big show of support for our Wales Rugby team as they play-
THE AUSTRALIAN WALLABIES on Saturday! :-) :-)

So if any of you are Welsh or Honorary Welshmen or Women (by friendship or ancestry or just because you want to support our BRILLIANT TEAM!) join me in cheering our team on!

PLEASE NOTE-This is the fourth match in the Wales International Fixtures.
We have already played South Africa, Argentina and Tonga- so earlier posts are about those matches.

JEM~~ just noticed your post on Welsh thread.

WELSH NATIONAL ANTHEM.
Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mad,
Tros ryddid gollasant eu gwaed.
Cytgan:
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.
Tra mor yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.
Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd,
Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn i'm golwg sydd hardd;
Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si
Ei nentydd, afonydd, i mi.
Os treisiodd y gelyn fy ngwlad tan ei droed,
Mae hen iaith y Cymry mor fyw ag erioed,
Ni luddiwyd yr awen gan erchyll law brad.
Na thelyn berseiniol fy ngwlad.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The land of my fathers, the land of my choice,
The land in which poets and minstrels rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were true to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.
Chorus:
Wales! Wales! fav'rite land of Wales!
While sea her wall, may naught befall
To mar the old language of Wales.
Old mountainous Cambria, the Eden of bards,
Each hill and each valley excite my regards;
To the ears of her patriots how charming still seems
The music that flows in her streams.
My country tho' crushed by a hostile array,
The language of Cambria lives on to this day;
The muse has eluded the traitors' foul knives,
The harp of my country survives.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bread of Heaven
By William Williams 1717-91 & Peter Williams 1727-96
Guide me, O thou great Redeemer,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou are mighty,
Hold me with thy powerful hand;
Bread of heaven, Feed me till I want no more.
Open now the crystal fountain,
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
Strong deliverer,
Be thou still my strength and shield.
When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fear subside;
Death of death, and hell's destruction.
Land me safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises
I will ever give to thee.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We'll Keep a Welcome in the Hillsides
Far away a voice is calling,
Bells from memory do chime
Come home again, come home again,
They call through the oceans of time.
We'll keep a welcome in the hillside.
We'll keep a welcome in the Vales
This land you knew will still be singing
When you come home again to Wales.
This land of song will keep a welcome
And with a love that never fails,
Well kiss away each hour of hiraeth
When you come home again to Wales.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Green Green Grass Of Home
The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
The old house is still standing tho' the paint is cracked and dry,
and there's that old oak tree I used to play on.
Down the lane I walk with my sweet Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to meet me, arms reaching, smiling sweetly.
It's good to touch the green, green grass of home .
Then I awake and look around me, at four grey wall surround me
and I realize that I was only dreaming.
For there's a guard and there's a sad old padre -
arm in arm we'll walk at daybreak.
Again I touch the green, green grass of home.
Yes, they'll all come to see me in the shade of that old oak tree
as they lay me beneath the green, green grass of home.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Very good game but what a bruiser. You Can Do It Wales, Come On.
That's it I'm offffffffffffffffffff.

Uit die diepte van ons see,
Oor ons ewige gebergtes,
Waar die kranse antwoord gee,

And united we shall stand,
Let us live and strive for freedom,
In South Africa our land.
