Iselfrydedd

Ofer cri gweddi y gwas - a fyddo

Iselfrydedd
Ofer cri, gweddi y gwas - a fyddo
    O feddwl uchelgas:
  Ir a sylwa'r iselwas,
  A grŷn wrth orseddfa gras.

Daniel Evans (Daniel Ddu o Geredigion) 1792-1846

(Depression)
Useless cry, the prayer of the servant - be it
    Of an ambitious thought:
  The Lord shall notice the lowly servant,
  Who trembles at the throne of grace.

tr. 2016 Richard B Gillion
