I hear the foe advancing, Barbed steeds are proudly prancing, W:Helmets in the sunbeams glancing, Glitter through the trees. W:Men of Harlech lie ye dreaming? See ye not their falchions gleaming? W:While their pennants gaily streaming Flutter in the breeze. W:From the rocks abounding Let the war cry sounding, W:Summon all at Freedom's call; The haughty foe surrounding. W:Men of Harlech, on to glory, See your banner famed in story, W:Wave these burning words before thee, "Welshman scorns to yield". W:. W:Mid the fray see dead and dying, Friend and foe together lying, W:All around the gun shot flying, Scatters sudden death. W:Frightened steeds are wildly neighing, Brazen trumpets hoarsely braying, W:Wounded men for mercy praying With their parting breath. W:See they're in disorder! Comrades keep close order! W:Ever shall they rue the day, They ventured 'cross our border. W:Now the Saxons flee before us, Vict'ry's banner floateth o'er us. W:Raise the loud exulting chorus "Cymru wins the field". % % % % % % % % % %]
