Jim Dixon Lyr Req: David of the White Rock (27) Lyr Add: DAVID OF THE WHITE ROCK 29 Jan 20


Ingeb.org gives the same Welsh lyrics as above, also attributed to Ceiriog Hughes, but a different English translation, with no attribution:


DAVID OF THE WHITE ROCK

1. "Bring me my harp," was David's sad sigh.
"I would play one more tune before I die.
Help me, dear wife, put the hands to the strings.
I wish my loved ones the blessing God brings."

2. Last night an angel called with heaven's breath:
"David, play, and come through the gates of death!"
"Farewell, faithful harp, farewell to your strings,
I wish my loved ones the blessing God brings."
