Yr Iawn

Paham y gwneir cam 'r cymod - neu'r lawn?

(Yr Iawn)
Paham y gwneir cam
      'r cymod - neu'r Iawn,
    A'i rinwedd dros bechod?
  Dywedwch faint y Duwdod,
  Yr un faint yw'r Iawn i fod!

Robert Williams (Robert ap Gwilym Ddu) 1766-1850
Gardd Eifion 1841

(The Satisfaction)
Why is a mistake to be made with
      the reconciliation - or the Satisfaction,
    And its merit for sin?
  Tell how great the Trinity,
  Of the same extent is the Satisfaction to be!
