Representative Text

1 Da yw bod wrth draed yr Iesu,
Ym more oes;
Ni chawn neb fel Ef i’n dysgu,
Hyd ddiwedd oes:
Dan Ei groes mae ennill brwydrau,
A gorchfygu temtasiynau—
Achos Crist yw’r achos gorau,
Ar hyd ein hoes.

2 Cawn Ei air i buro’r galon,
Ym more oes;
A chysegru pob gobeithion,
Ym more oes;
Wedi dod ym mlodau’n dyddiau,
Ni bydd eisiau gado’i lwybrau—
Cawn fynediad i’w drigfannau,
Ar ddiwedd oes.

Lewis, Howell Elvet, M.A., born April 14, 1860, and educated for the Congregational Ministry. After holding several charges in the country, he removed to London in 1898. His Sweet Singers of Wales, 1889, contains translations of standard Welsh hymns. They are well done, and worthy of attention on the part of hymn-book compilers. Mr. Lewis is M.A. of the University of Wales. [Rev. T. G. Crippen] --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, New Supplement (1907)… Go to person page >
