The Snowdonia National Park takes its name from Snowdon which, at 1085m (3,560 feet), is the highest peak in Wales and England. In Welsh, Snowdon used to be called Yr Wyddfa Fawr (the Great Tomb or the Great Throne) or Carnedd y Cawr (the Cairn of the Giant). Nowadays it is simply called Yr Wyddfa, but the various names bear testament to a land steeped in legends, history and tradition. This is the ancient Kingdom of Gwynedd, the heart of Wales and the stronghold of 'Cymraeg', the Welsh Language. The Welsh name for the National Park is Eryri (The Highland).

Jerusalem - A Poem

Your walls stand proudly, the city surround,

Erect in Truth and Faith!

Your saints are gathered, inward bound,

In Freedom, not Enslaved!

No Man could ever build a place, worthy of the Lord,

For he himself is Great!

For everything a man has made, defended by the sword,

Delivered by his fate!

I see a vision of your Divine, home is near to me,

Still waiting by the gate!

Your holy presence in my mind, with all that I can be,

My spirit in your state!

Heavenly glory and riches of all, in your heart contained,

We long to meet you there!

The promise of eternity, by you it was proclaimed,

With all humility I can bear!

-Welcome to Jerusalem!-

Enter all you nations, the Truth will be revealed

Take upon your heavenly stations, never to be deceived;

The holy city once again, in glory stands so proud

For all the people of the world, this place was lost and found;

Re-built in Heaven, for Eternity last,

as you love, and choose your path;

Heaven will open and welcome you in,

enter the city by the name of Jerusalem
