Anne

I transposed it off you tube as well and its just about the same as yours except for the next three lines.

1. The moorland yields to glory the shepherd bends the knee
2. Holds gifts by Nature's graces her bounty to command
3. Let bright bands rule the flame, this day shall bear your name

THE DEVONSHIRE CAROL    as sung by John Tams

The lambkin in the manger the light upon the lea
The moorland yields to glory the shepherd bends the knee
And all are wrapped in grace and all are gifted mirth
Peace walks upon this blessed land
Peace walks upon this blessed land
Peace walks upon this blessed land
Goodwill upon all Earth

The ploughboy at his traces, the line upon the land
Holds gifts by Nature's graces her bounty to command
And all are wrapped in grace and all are gifted mirth
Peace walks upon this blessed land
Peace walks upon this blessed land
Peace walks upon this blessed land
Goodwill upon all Earth

Tommy in the meadow, Tommy in the byre
Tommy on the firestep, Tommy on the wire
And those who walked in war and those who walked in peace
And those who walked this blessed land
And those who walked this blessed land
And those who walked this blessed land
Their souls shall never cease.

Stand to, me bonny lads, stand to and make you ready
Stand to, me bonny lads, hold the line right steady
Let bright bands rule the flame, this day shall bear your name
Stand to, me bonny lads, hold the line right steady
And those who walked in war and those who cherished peace
And those who walked this blessed land
And those who walked this blessed land
And those who walked this blessed land
Their souls shall never cease.

regards

Chris
