O Iesu gwiw gwyn fyd a brofo'th Ddawn

1,2,(3).
(Melysder cariad a chymdeithas Crist)
O Iesu gwiw,
    gwyn fyd a brofo'th ddawn,
A'th gariad pur,
    yn felys nerthol iawn;
  Digonedd wyt
      i hwn, tra ynddo chwyth,
  Nid oes i'w gael,
      na'i geisio'n rhagor byth.

Hardd Iesu, wyt
    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,
    'n 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?

(The sweetness of the love and fellowship of Christ)
O worthy Jesus,
    blessed is he who experiences thy gift,
And thy pure love,
    very strongly sweet;
  Sufficient thou art
      to him, while he has breath in him,
  There is nothing else to get,
      nor ever anything more to seek.

Beautiful Jesus, thou art
    the delight of a heavenly host;
How sweet to the ear
    is the sound of thy dear name!
  To the mouth thou art
      like honey, purely sweet,
  Like heavenly wine
      to the heart under its wound.

About thee, Jesus,
    often is my complaint!
When may I get
    thy gentle, cheerful visit?
  When wilt thou make
      me joyful with thy countenance?
  When may I get
      filled with thy peace?
tr. 2019 Richard B Gillion
