Meter: 7.7.7.D

The top notes are the melody. This pleasant tune has a classical feel, and is in the public domain in the United States. Since the only thing I have ever heard sung to the tune of Aberystwyth is Charles Wesley's "Jesus, Lover of My Soul", I included the lyrics for the first verse.

If you like, you can hear a MIDI file of "Aberystwyth".
