The miner’s song (This is Wales) – Voice and Orchestra, Male Voice Choir

The miner’s song – Lyrics

The drum of boots upon the cobbles,
Sound of sons and fathers returning home.
The cold winds blow across the valley;
Down from the mountains capped with snow.
Love lies sighing in the valley,
And my heart is waiting
Where the cold winds blow.

And this is Wales,
Land of our fathers;
This is Wales, a land with soul:
A land of glory,
Of light and darkness,
Where light is song,
And darkness is coal.

The pulse you hear along the valleys,
Sound of sons and fathers coming home;
boots that echo loud tramp firm on cobbles,
The sound of men both young and old.
Their boots are beating upon the cobbles,
Our sons and fathers returning home.

And this is Wales,
Land of our fathers;
This is Wales, a land with soul:
A land of glory,
Of light and darkness,
Where dark is coal
And light is song!
