GUEST,Mary Humphreys Lyr Add: Tra bo dwr y mor yn hallt (11) Lyr Add: TRA BO DWR Y MOR YN HALLT 27 Jun 13


Here is the full version that I sing, with a literal translation of the words.I may have some of it a bit garbled - corrections would be welcomed.


Tra bo dwr y mor yn hallt
a thra bo 'ngwallt yn tyfu
Tra bo 'nghalon yn fy mron
Mi fyddaf ffyddlon iti.

( As long as sea water is salt
And as long as hair grows
As long as there is a heart in my bosom,
I will be faithful to you.)


Fi sydd fachgen ieuanc ffol
Yn buw yn ol fy ffansi
Myfi'n bugeilio'r gwenith gwyn
Ac arall yn ei fedi

( I am a foolish young man
Living after my fancy
I watch over the white wheat
And someone else harvests it.)


Rwy'n dewis dyfod ar dy ol
Bob dydd ar ol ei gilydd
Tithau sydd anwylyd fach
Yn decach wynnach beunydd

(I choose to follow you
Each and every day
You are my little darling
More lovely and beautiful every day.)


Glanach glanach wyt bob dydd
Neu fi sy a'm ffydd mor ffolach
Er mwyn y Gwr a wnaeth dy wedd
Dod im drugaredd bellach.

(You are more beautiful, more beautiful every day
But I in faith am more foolish.
The Man ( God?) who made your face
Come now to my mercy.)
