Heatherland and Bentland, Blackland and white
God bring me to Northumberland, the land of my delight!
Land of singing waters and winds from off the sea,
God bring me to Northumberland, the land where I would be.
Heatherland and Bentland and valley rich with corn,
God bring me to Northumberland, the land where I was born.
Wilfred Wilson Gibson (1878-1962)
