    Cwm Rhondda (Guide me, O though great Jehovah)

    Composed by John Hughes (1873-1932)
    Words by William Williams (1716-1791)

    Guide me, O though great Jehovah!
    Pilgrim through this barren land,
    I am weak, but Thou art mighty,
    Hold me with Thy powerful hand;
    Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
    Feed me now and evermore.
    Feed me now and evermore.

    Open now the crystal fountain
    whence the healing stream doth flow.
    Let the fiery cloudy pillar
    lead me all my journey through:
    Strong deliverer! strong deliverer!
    Be Thou still my strength and shield.
    Be thou still my strength and shield.

    When I tread the verge of Jordan,
    bid my anxious fears subside.
    Bear me through the swelling torrent,
    land me safe on Canaan's side:
    Songs of praises. Songs of praises.
    I will ever give to Thee.
    I will ever give to Thee.

    O! am aros. O! am aros.

  • myfanwy morriston orpheus choir


    Colin Davies was known by many people in Wales and beyond for his love of God and encouragement of young and old alike. He was also renowned for his faithful preaching of the gospel and huge role in looking after and equipping Christian camps for young people in Wales.

    Born the only child of farming parents in Llanbedr, his mother tells of an early desire to be a minister, but it was under the ministry of Rev. Jim Webber from the age of 20 that he came to a gradual understanding of salvation.

    By 22, he professed saving faith in Christ and was baptised. He fully participated in the life of his church, taking young people to meetings around the county piled in his Land Rover.

    Later, following the Lord's calling, he entered the Presbyterian College in Aberystwyth, after which in 1974 he was ordained as a minister.

    Dwedwch fawrion o wybodaeth
    O ba beth a gwnaethpwyd hiraeth
    A pha ddefnydd a roedd ynddo
    Na ddarfyddo wrth ei wisgo ?

    Derfydd aur a derfydd arian
    Derfydd melfed derfydd sidan
    Derfydd pob dilledyn helaeth
    Eto er hyn ni dderfydd hiraeth

    Hiraeth mawr a hiraeth creulon
    Hiraeth sydd yn torri 'nghalon
    Pan fwyf dryma'r nos yn cysgu
    Fe ddaw hiraeth ac a'm deffry

    (Hiraeth hiraeth cilia cilia
    Paid a phwyso mor drwm arna'
    Nesa dipyn at y erchwyn
    Gad i mi gael cysgu gronyn)

    English lyrics:

    Tell me oh wise ones
    Of what stuff is hiraeth made?
    And what substance is put into it
    That it never fades from being worn

    Gold fades and silver fades
    Velvet fades silk fades
    Every sort of clothing fades
    And yet hiraeth doesn't fade

    Great Hiraeth cruel hiraeth
    Hiraeth tears at my heart
    When I'm sleeping deeply at night
    Hiraeth comes and wakes me

    (Hiraeth hiraeth away away
    Don't weigh so heavily on me
    Go a little nearer to the edge
    Let me have a little bit of sleep)

    Gwahoddiad (Arglwydd Dyma Fi) (english lyrics below welsh)

    Mi glywaf dyner lais,
    Yn galw arnaf fi,
    I ddod a golchi meiau gyd.
    Yn afon Calfari.
    Arglwydd, dyma fi
    ar dy alwad di,
    Golch fi'n burlan yn y gwaed
    a gaed ar Galfari.

    Gogoniant byth am drefn,
    Y cymod a'r glanhad;
    Derbyniaf Iesu fel yr wyf,
    A chanaf am y gwaed.

    Arglwydd, dyma fi
    ar dy alwad di,
    Golch fi'n burlan yn y gwaed
    a gaed ar Galfari.

    ENGLISH translation:

    I hear thy gentle voice
    Calling to me
    To come and wash all my sins
    In the river of Calvary.


    Lord, here I am
    At thy call,
    Bleach my soul in the blood
    Which flowed on Calvary.

    Glory ever for ordering
    The reconciliation and the expurgation;
    I will receive Jesus as I am
    And sing about the blood.


    Lord, here I am
    At thy call,
    Bleach my soul in the blood
    Which flowed on Calvary.

    Gwahoddiad was originally a hymn from the US called I hear thy welcome voice, the words and tune of which were written in 1872 by the American Methodist minister and hymn writer Lewis Hartsough (1828-1919), during a re­viv­al meet­ing at Epworth, Iowa where Hartsough was Pastor. Hartsough was music editor of The Revivalist, first published in Troy, New York in 1868 and revised in 1872.

    The Welsh version Gwahoddiad, written by Calvinistic Methodist minister and musician Rev. John Roberts (Ieuan Gwyllt), has become so well-known in translation that many people believe it to be a traditional Welsh hymn.

    Geiriau/ Lyrics:

    Jesus, lover of my soul,
    Let me to thy bosom fly,
    While the gathering waters roll,
    While the tempest still is high;
    Hide me, O my Saviour, hide,
    Till the storm of life is past;
    Safe into the haven guide,
    O receive my soul at last!

    Noddfa arall nid oes un
    Wrthyt glyn fy enaid gwan:
    Paid am gadael, bydd dy Hun
    Imi'n gysur ac yn rhan:
    Ti yw Gwrthrych mawr fy ffydd,
    Ti yw 'nghymorth, neb ond Ti;
    Cudd fy mhen digysgod, cudd
    Odan nawdd dy adain Di.

    Plenteous grace with thee is found,
    Grace to cleanse from every sin;
    Let the healing streams abound,
    Make and keep me pure within.
    Thou of life the fountain art;
    Freely let me take of thee;
    Spring thou up within my heart,
    Rise to all eternity.

  • The Morriston Orpheus Choir - Myfanwy


    Myfanwy (← annwyl, beloved) is a popular Welsh song, composed by Joseph Parry and first published in 1875. Parry wrote the music to lyrics written by Richard Davies ('Mynyddog'; 1833-77). Some sources say it was written with Parry's childhood sweetheart, Myfanwy Llywellyn, in mind, although the lyrics were probably inspired by the fourteenth-century love-story of Myfanwy Fychan of Dinas Brân, Llangollen and the poet Hywel ab Einion. That story was also the subject of the popular poem, 'Myfanwy Fychan' (1858), by John Ceiriog Hughes (1832-87).

    Lyrics (Welsh):

    Paham mae dicter, O Myfanwy,
    Yn llenwi'th lygaid duon di?
    A'th ruddiau tirion, O Myfanwy,
    Heb wrido wrth fy ngweled i?
    Pa le mae'r wên oedd ar dy wefus
    Fu'n cynnau 'nghariad ffyddlon ffôl?
    Pa le mae sain dy eiriau melys,
    Fu'n denu'n nghalon ar dy ôl?

    Pa beth a wneuthum, O Myfanwy
    I haeddu gwg dy ddwyrudd hardd?
    Ai chwarae oeddit, O Myfanwy
    Â thanau euraidd serch dy fardd?
    Wyt eiddo im drwy gywir amod
    Ai gormod cadw'th air i mi?
    Ni cheisiaf fyth mo'th law, Myfanwy,
    Heb gael dy galon gyda hi.

    Myfanwy boed yr holl o'th fywyd
    Dan heulwen ddisglair canol dydd.
    A boed i rosyn gwridog iechyd
    I ddawnsio ganmlwydd ar dy rudd.
    Anghofia'r oll o'th addewidion
    A wnest i rywun, 'ngeneth ddel,
    A dyro'th law, Myfanwy dirion
    I ddim ond dweud y gair Ffarwél.

    Lyrics (English):

    Why is it anger, O Myfanwy,
    That fills your eyes so dark and clear?
    Your gentle cheeks, O sweet Myfanwy,
    Why blush they not when I draw near?
    Where is the smile that once most tender
    Kindled my love so fond, so true?
    Where is the sound of your sweet words,
    That drew my heart to follow you?

    What have I done, O my Myfanwy,
    To earn your frown? What is my blame?
    Was it just play, my sweet Myfanwy,
    To set your poet's love aflame?
    You truly once to me were promised,
    Is it too much to keep your part?
    I wish no more your hand, Myfanwy,
    If I no longer have your heart.

    Myfanwy, may you spend your lifetime
    Beneath the midday sunshine's glow,
    And on your cheeks O may the roses
    Dance for a hundred years or so.
    Forget now all the words of promise
    You made to one who loved you well,
    Give me your hand, my sweet Myfanwy,
    But one last time, to say farewell.

    This version's lyrics below
    Sung with respect by the Morriston Orpheus Choir, Abertawe.

    Geiriau/ lyrics:

    Sunset glow fades in the west.
    Night o'er the valley is creeping.
    Birds cuddle down in their nest
    Soon all the world will be sleeping.

    And now is the hour
    When we must say goodbye.
    Soon you'll be sailing
    Far across the sea.

    While you're away
    Oh, please, remember me.
    When you return
    You'll find me waiting here.

    While you're away
    Oh, please, remember me.
    When you return
    You'll find me waiting here.

    When you return
    You'll find me waiting here.

    Now Is the Hour is a popular song, though often described as a traditional Māori song, the english lyrics are by Clement Scott, an Australian. It is usually credited to Clement Scott, Maewa Kaihau & Dorothy Stewart.
