Lyrics

CALON LAN (SHINING HEART)

id wy'n gofyn bywyd moethus
Aur y byd na'i berlau mân
Gofyn rwyf am calon hapus
Calon onest, calon lân.

Cytgan:
Calon lân yn llawn daioni
Tecach yw na'r lili dlos
Does ond calon lân all ganu
Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.

Pe dymunwn olud bydol
Chwim adenydd iddo sydd
Golud calon lân rinweddol
Yn dwyn bythol elw fydd.

Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad
Esgyn ar adenydd cân
Ar i Dduw, er mwyn fy Ngheidwad
Roddi imi galon lân

~

English Translation by Rees Harris

I seek not life's ease and pleasures,
Earthly riches, pearls nor gold;
Give to me a heart made happy,
Clean and honest to unfold

Chorus:
A clean heart o'erflow'd with goodness,
Fairer than the lily bright;
A clean heart forever singing,
Singing through the day and night

If I cherish earthly treasures
Swift they flee and all is vain;
A clean heart enriched with virtues
Bring to me eternal gain

Morn and evening my petition
Wings its flight to heaven in song;
In the name of my Redeemer,
Make my heart clear, pure and strong.
