Nos Galan - “Winter”                      Nos Galan - MP3
Tune: Traditional Welsh                         Nos Galan - Sheet Music
(Deck the Hall with boughs of Holly),
No. 50 “The Oxford Book of Carols”

Hear the joyful bells a-ringing
All ye mountains greet the sun
Lift our hearts like birds a-winging
All ye mountains greet the sun
Now our festal season bringing
Kinsfolk – gather everyone
Sets our cheery voices singing
All ye mountains greet the sun!

Dear our hearth as dear none other
Where the mountains greet the sun
Gladly here our cares we smother
Where the mountains greet the sun
Here we greet our heathen brothers,
Sisters, kinsfolk everyone
Here we honour Ancient Mothers
Where the mountains greet the sun!

Cold the year, new whiteness wearing
All ye mountains greet the sun
Peace, goodwill to us a-bearing
All ye mountains greet the sun
Here we all Frey’s goodness sharing
Now the feasting has begun
Bright our heath fire’s flames are burning
Where the mountains greet the sun
