Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O Iesu mawr, rho'th anian bur

Representative Text

1 O! Iesu mawr, rho d’anian bur
I eiddil gwan mewn anial dir,
I’w nerthu drwy’r holl rwystrau sy
Ar ddyrys daith i’r Ganaan fry.

2 Pob gras sydd yn yr Eglwys fawr,
Fry yn y nef, neu ar y llawr,
Caf feddu’n oll, eu meddu’n un,
Wrth feddu d’anian Di dy Hun.

3 Mi lyna’n dawel wrth dy draed,
Mi ganaf am rinweddau’r gwaed,
Mi garia’r groes, mi nofia’r don,
Ond cael dy anian dan fy mron.
