Hi, just heard this on Thistle & Shamrock. It is a beautiful song. Didn't see it in the alphabetical listing in the DT. Do any of you know it?

Thanks,

kat

Kat,
not being at my usual computer, I cannot make it easy for you, but you'll find the lyrics this way: go to the Tannahill Weavers Webpage (via Mudact links), click on 'recordings', click on 'Land of light' (the record) and then click on 'Land of Light' (the song) and you have it. Beautiful song. I only know it from the Tannahill Weavers.

Wolfgang

Thank you, Wolfgang! I don't know why I didn't think of that! I will do it today. It is beautiful, isn't it? I just heard it on the radio, the other day, for the first time.

Thanks, again!

From the Tannahill Weavers' web site:


LAND OF LIGHT
Words and music by R. Gullane

O sleep in peace, you valleys and hills.
Be safe; be free as the breeze.
The north wind of fear like a banshee howled,
And she drove you down on your knees to pray.
She drove you down on your knees.

Lift up your head to the morning light.
The fight o'er darkness is won,
And feast your eyes on the land you love,
Its life returning with the sun; behold,
Its life returning with the sun.

And the morning walks proud, shining out like a flame.
No evil could subdue.
You open up your arms in friendship and joy
To welcome in the new-born day,
To welcome in the new.

May the spirit so strong in the shadow and storm
Hold fast to what is right,
And surely as you breathe the gentle air of peace,
This land shall shelter in the light of love;
This land shall shelter in the light.
