We won’t wait any longer,
We are stronger than before.
We won’t wait any longer,
We are stronger.
We have trusted no-one’s promise,
We have kept to just ourselves;
We have suffered from the lies
In all the books upon your shelves.
And our patience and endurance
Through the Burning Times and now
Have given us the strength
To keep our vow.
You have grazed away the heather
And have razed the sacred grove;
You have driven native peoples
From the places that they love.
Though your greed has been unbounded,
You have felt the pangs of shame
Ev’ry time you trod
Upon the Mother’s name.
Though you thought you had destroyed
The mem’ry of the Ancient Way,
Still the people light the bale fires
Ev’ry year on solstice day,
And on Beltane Eve and Samhain
You can find us on the hill
Invoking once again
The Triple Will.
Through the ages many races
Have risen and have gone,
But dispersed among the nations
Of the world, we linger on.
Now the time has come to take
The sacred Cauldron of Rebirth,
And fulfil our ancient
Pledges to the Earth.
Gwydion Pendderwen (1979)
