Gyda'r wawr deffrown ar y San'taidd ddydd

Gyda'r wawr deffrown
    ar y San'taidd ddydd,
Yr efengyl fwyn
    yn ein galw sydd;

  Dyma reol pawb
      'r byd y llwybr cul -
  Ydyw bod, mewn pryd
      yn yr Ysgol Sul.

Mae yr haul a'r mor
    yn gofalu bod,
Yn eu pryd bob dydd,
    pan yn myn'd a dod:

Y mae pob peth byw,
    yn mhob man o'r byd,
'Nol eu greddf yn d'od
    at eu gwaith mewn pryd;

Tn: Gyda Wawr Deffrown (William B Bradbury 1816-68)

With the dawn let us awake
    on the Holy day,
The gentle gospel
    is calling us;

  Here is the rule of everyone
      along the the narrow path -
  It is to be, in time
      in the Sunday School.

The sun and the sea are
    careful to be,
In their time every day,
    when coming and going:

Every living thing is
    in every place of the world,
According to their instinct coming
    to their work in time;
tr. 2016 Richard B Gillion
