'Does eisiau'n bod nac ofn na chlais na chlwy'

(Jesu dulcis memoria)

1,(2),3,4.
(Digon yn yr Iesu)
'Does eisiau'n bod, nac ofn,
    na chlais, na chlwy',
Ar f'enaid tlawd,
    heb fod gan Iesu fwy;
  Anfeidrol fwy o werth
     sydd yn ei waed;
  Os trengu wnaf,
     mi drengaf wrth ei draed.

O Iesu gwiw,
    gwyn fyd a brofo'th Ddawn,
A'th gariad pur,
    yn felys nerthol iawn;
  Digonedd wyt i hwn,
      tra ynddo chwŷth,
  Nid oes i'w gael,
      na'i geisio'n rhagor byth.

Fy Iesu hardd,
    hyfrydwch nefol lu;
Mor br i'r glust
    yw sain dy enw cu!
  I'r genau mae fel ml,
      yn felys bur,
  Fel nefol wn
      i'r galon dan ei chur.

Am danat, Iesu,
    yn fynych mae fy nghŵyn!
Pa bryd y cf
    dy lon ymweliad mwyn?
  Pa bryd y gwnai fi'n
      llawen  dy wedd?
  Pa bryd y cf
      fy llenwi o dy hedd?
Fy Iesu hardd, :: Hardd Iesu! wyt

(Sufficiency in Jesus)
There is no want, nor fear,
    nor bruise, nor disease,
For my poor soul,
    that Jesus has not had more;
  Immeasurably more worth
     is in his blood;
  If I shall perish,
     I shall perish at his feet.

O worthy Jesus,
    blessed is one who tastes thy Power,
And thy pure love,
    very sweetly strongly;
  Sufficient art thou to this one,
      while there is breath in him,
  There is nothing for him to have,
      nor seek any more ever.

My beautiful Jesus,
    delight of a heavenly host;
How sweet to the ear
    is the sound of thy dear name!
  To the mouth it is like honey,
      purely sweet,
  Like heavenly wine
      to the heart under its stoke.

For thee, Jesus,
    often is my cry!
When may I get
    thy cheering, tender visit?
  When wilt thou make me
      joyful with thy countenance?
  When may I get
      filled with thy peace?
My beautiful Jesus, :: Beautiful Jesus, thou art the
