Tawel Nos


Tawel nos dros y byd,
Sanctaidd nos gylch y crud;
Gwylion dirion yr oedd addfwyn ddau,
Faban Duw gydar llygaid bach cau,
Iesu Twysog ein hedd.

Sanctaidd nos gydai ser;
Mante
ll fwyn,cariad per

Mintair bugail yn dod i fwynhau
Baban Duw gydar llygaid bach cau,
Iesu Twysog ein hedd.

Tawel nos, Duw ei Hun
Ar y llawr gyda dyn;
Cerddir engyl, ar Nen trugarhau;
Baban Duw gydar llygaid bach cau,
Iesu,Twysog ein hedd.


Mae Llaw y Gaeaf (Jenkin Morgan Edwards, 1933)


Mae llaw y gaeaf oer
Yn cloi pob nant a llyn,
A bysedd bach y coed
I gyd mewn menyg gwyn;
Ar adar wrth y drws
Yn printior eiran dlws.

Nid oes mewn llwyn na gardd
Un nodyn bach o gan,
A saif y coed yn syth
Mewn gwisg o berlau glan;
Daw dawns yr haul cyn hir
Iw troi yn arian clir.

Caraf y gaeaf byth,
Er oernii awel fain,
Am ddod a gynau gwyn
Ir coed ar llwyni drain;
Ar adar wrth y drws
Yn printior eiran dlws.



menig: gloves
oerni: [m.](n.) cold, coldness, chillness
