Learn The Welsh National Anthem Here!

For many non Welsh speakers and persons of Welsh descent discovering their heritage, learning the national anthem can be a problem. No one wants to be left out during one of the most stirring and emotional moments at a Six Nations clash! After scouring the internet we believe we have found the best and most straightforward tool to overcome this. The following video was posted by sing4wales and can be found on their YouTube channel here:- sing4wales



Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.

(chorus)

Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.
Tra môr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Land of My Fathers

The land of my fathers, the land of my choice,
The land in which poets and minstrels rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were true to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.

(chorus)

Wales! Wales! fav'rite land of Wales!
While sea her wall, may naught befall
To mar the old language of Wales.
