Calon Lān
(Oh Pure Heart)


Nid wy'n gofyn bywyd moethus
Aur y byd na'i berlau mān
Gofyn rwyf am calon hapus
Calon onest, calon lān.

Cytgan:
Calon lān yn llawn daioni
Tecach yw na'r lili dlos
Does ond calon lān all ganu
Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.

Pe dymunwn olud bydol
Chwim adenydd iddo sydd
Golud calon lān rinweddol
Yn dwyn bythol elw fydd.

Cytgan:

Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad
Esgyn ar adenydd cān
Ar i Dduw, er mwyn fy Ngheidwad
Roddi imi galon lān.

Cytgan:



English


I ask not for ease and riches
Nor earth's jewels for my part
But I have the best of wishes
For a pure and honest heart.

Chorus:
Oh, pure heart so true and tender
Fairer than the lilies white
The pure heart alone can render
Songs of joy both day and night.

Should I cherish earthly treasure
It would fly on speedy wings
The pure heart a plenteous measure
Of true pleasure daily brings.

Chorus:

Eve and morn my prayers ascending
To God's heaven on wings of song
Seek the joy that knows no ending
The pure heart that knows no wrong.

Chorus:
