Calon Lan

I ask for a happy heart, 
Gofyn wyf am galon hapus, 

I don’t ask for a luxurious life, 
Nid wy’n gofyn bywyd moethus, 

World gold or its pearls: 
Aur y byd na’I berlau mân: 

An honest heart, a clean heart.
Calon onest, calon lân.A pure heart full of goodness, 
Calon lân yn llawn daioni, 

It’s fairer than the pretty lily: 
Tecach yw na’r lili dlos: 

Only a pure heart can sing 
Dim ond calon lân all ganu 

Sing the day and the night.
Canu’r dydd a chanu’r nos.If we wanted worldly riches, 
Pe dymunwn olud bydol, 

He has an early seed; 
Hedyn buan ganddo sydd; 

The gift of a pure, virtuous heart, 
Golud calon lân, rinweddol, 

Will bring everlasting profit.
Yn dwyn bythol elw fydd.A pure heart full of goodness, 
Calon lân yn llawn daioni, 

It’s fairer than the pretty lily: 
Tecach yw na’r lili dlos: 

Only a pure heart can sing 
Dim ond calon lân all ganu 

Sing the day and the night.
Canu’r dydd a chanu’r nos.Late and the morning of my wish 
Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad 

Go to heaven on the wing of a song 
Gwyd I’r nef ar adain cân 

For God, for my Savior’s sake, 
Ar I Dduw, er mwyn fy Ngheidwad, 

Give me a pure heart.
Roddi I mi galon lân.A pure heart full of goodness, 
Calon lân yn llawn daioni, 

It’s fairer than the pretty lily: 
Tecach yw na’r lili dlos: 

Only a pure heart can sing 
Dim ond calon lân all ganu 

Sing the day and the night.
Canu’r dydd a chanu’r nos.
