The Great Orme
by Christopher R. Williams
Mighty Orme so strong and true
keeping watch, over me and you.
At your feet, the township lies
crescent shore, and buildings high.
Mighty Orme so high above
keep us safe, and keep us loved.
Down below, we gaze and wonder
all our fears, you put asunder.
Mighty Orme from the sea you rise
demanding reverence, from awe struck eyes.
Power and grace, a force of nature
a winking light, your guide for sailors.
Mighty Orme your heart of copper
bright and shining, rich in colour.
Glowing, beating, beaming out
to chase away, our cares and doubt.
Mighty Orme your cliffs so steep
with pounding waves, that crash and sweep.
Ever present, always near
as we sleep, your voice we hear.
Mighty Orme in all your glory
for years gone by, you’ve watched our story.
In our hearts, we hope and pray
for evermore, you’ll stand and stay.
