Dylan Thomas lyrics & sound file – “Every morning, when I wake”
For the AMMAS members who attended our annual gathering in Lychen 2008. This year we had a continuing theme of songs from all the countries represented at the gathering. Jamie MacDowell (Britain, Northern Ireland) took us through a Welsh song inspired by Dylan Thomas. Hover over the link & a window should come up.

Not bad for 20 minutes rehearsal – even if I do say so myself! The photos are by Ralf Hiemisch – Alexander teacher & photographer. The words are below. I’ll get more of the songs up as I get to grips with the technology. Enjoy!
Best wishes, Alan
Every morning, when I wake,
Dear Lord, a little prayer I make,
O please to keep Thy loving eye
On all poor creatures born to die.
And every evening at sun-down
I ask a blessing on the town,
For whether we last the night or no
I’m sure is always touch-and-go.
We are not wholly bad or good
Who live our lives under Milk Wood,
And Thou, I know, wilt be the first
To see our best side, not our worst.
O let us see another day!
Bless us this holy night, I pray,
And to the sun we all will bow
And say, goodbye – but just for now!
