Songs That Every Child Should Know 99
Dim through the glooming I see the broad targes,
Weapons I hear, as they clash on the shield; Arrows fly hissing, and oft-renewed charges
Thunder, and shake the blood-cover'd field; Higher than all, o'er the cries of the wounded, Proudly the voice of Caradoc resounded, " Down with the foeman, fight bravely for Britain, Or the moon see us cold on the Morva Rhuddlan."
See, the bold hearts of the Britons are heaving,
Red like their swords, seem their eyeballs to glow; See, the strong arm a wide passage is cleaving Right through the faltering ranks of the foe; Rises the voice of all Cyniru to heaven, " Now in our anguish let succour be given; Send O our Lord, send down comfort to Britain, Give success to our host in Morva Rhuddlan."
Swift through my soul darts a feeling of horror, Hark! the proud enemy shouts o'er his prey;
But oh! rejoice not, or boast of thy valor,
Numbers, not courage, have conquered to-day!
