Does anyone know the tune to "Hymn for a Fallen Comrade"? I heard it from Tom Hawken in BC. I have the words but not the music.

Hi: None of the above links were the song I am looking for.

Here are the words. I may have a lead -- will find out Wednesday. Will let you know if I find it.

To you who have dreamed in the darkness
A dream through the centuries rung
To you who have fallen in darkness
To you is our melody sung

You dreamed of a people triumphant
A land that was joyful and free
And staunch you set forth on the journey
Whose end you were never to see

Then deep in the dank of their dungeons
They left you to languish and rot
But still there was light in your darkness
The dream that you never forgot

They cursed you they beat you in fury
And left you for dead in the dawn
Go back they commanded but vainly
For still you went onward and on

But even the valiant grow weary
Evan the proud bow their head
Alas now the breave heart is silent
The dreamer, the dreamer is dead

But e'en your mirth remains
Have sunk 'neath the stygian stream
Your soul is a stone in the highway
That leads to the land of your dreams

And see now in millions we're marching
And swells all triumphant our song
The dream is in site for the oilers
And you too are marching along

Hello, Guest:

Did you ever find a tune for this? I've just noticed that the words were inserted in the Pacific Tribune by Srthur (Slim) Evans' wife and daughter on the anniversary of his death in 1945.
