“Calon Lan” in Welsh means “A Pure Heart.” Written in the 1890s as a hymn, the melody has become ingrained in Welsh popular culture. There’s a set of lyrics about going to Heaven and finding everyone and everything you’d loved and lost on earth: moved me to tears and stayed with me all night, last night. It has also spawned a kind of anthem for the Welsh national football team.
But we are putting it up here as a hymn, sung by the Dunvant Male Choir at Mynyddbach Chapel, in Wales.

It is nice to see Christian men dressed nicely for church. Our church used to be like that – now it is blue jeans and tennis shoes. I still dress nicely for church.
