Cofadail i’n cyfoedion – iaith hiraeth
Erys byth yn ffyddlon;
Dolen serch – ardal yn sôn
Am aberth mawr ei meibion.
“Ni heneiddiant hwy, fel ni a adawyd,
Ni ddwg oed iddynt ludded, na’r blynyddoedd gollfarn mwy.
Pan êl yr haul i lawr, ac ar wawr y bore,
ni a’u cofiwn hwy,
ni a’u cofiwn hwy.”
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them,
We will remember them”
