Dyn da oedd Dewi

Cytgan: 
Dyn da oedd Dewi, 
Dyn da oedd Dewi, 
Dyn da oedd Dewi, 
Dewi, Dewi Sant. 

Fe anwyd Dewi bychan 
    mewn bwthyn bach tô gwellt, 
Ar ddydd ei enedigaeth 
    roedd storom fawr a mellt, 
Ar fwthyn Dewi'n unig 
    fe wenodd heulwen braf, 
A chynnes oedd y tywydd 
    fel bore yn yr Haf. 

Cytgan... 

Pan aeth efe i'r ysgol 
    yr oedd yn fachgen call, 
Paulinus oedd ei athro 
    ond aeth yr athro'n ddall; 
Ei ddwylo rhoddodd Dewi 
    ar lygaid yr hen ŵr, 
A'i olwg a ddaeth iddo - 
    wel, dyna wyrth yn siwr. 

Cytgan... 

Cyfarfod fu'n Llanddewi 
    a'r dyrfa oedd yn fawr, 
Ond nid oedd neb yn clywed, 
    rhy wastad oedd y llawr; 
Ond danfon gwnaed am Ddewi 
    a daeth efe i'r fan, 
A'r tir lle'r oedd e'n sefyll 
    yn sydyn gododd lan. 

Cytgan... 

Fe grwydrodd ef trwy Gymru 
    yn dweud am Iesu Grist, 
A helpu rhai mewn angen 
    a gwella'r claf a'r trist; 
Ar fore Mawrth y cyntaf 
    yn dawel hunodd ef, 
'Rôl oes o wir wasanaeth 
    aeth Dewi Sant i'r nef. 

Anhysbys

David was a good man

Chorus:
David was a good man, 
David was a good man, 
David was a good man, 
David, Saint David. 

Little David was born 
    in a little thatched cottage, 
On the day of his birth 
    there was a heavy storm and lightning, 
On David's cottage only 
    the sun shone brightly, 
and the weather was warm 
    like a morning in the summer. 

Chorus...

When he went to school 
    he was a wise boy, 
His teacher was Paulinus 
    but the teacher went blind; 
David placed his hands 
    on the eyes of the old man, 
And his sight came back to him - 
    well, that was a certain miracle. 

Chorus...

There was a meeting in St David's (City) 
    and the crowds were large, 
but nobody could hear, 
    as the ground was too flat; 
but David was sent for 
    and he came to the place, 
and the ground where he was standing 
    suddenly rose up. 

Chorus... 

He wandered through Wales 
    speaking of Jesus Christ, 
And helping those in need 
    and healing the sick and the poor; 
On the morning of the first of March 
    he quietly passed away 
After a lifetime of true service 
    Saint David went to heaven.

Amdanom

Fel siaradwr ail iaith gyda phlentyn bach, sylweddolais na wyddem y geiriau na’r tonau i’r hwiangerddi Cymraeg. Bu rhaid i mi eu ddysgu gair am air a nodyn wrth nodyn oddi wrth fy ngwraig amyneddgar, tra bod hi’n canu i'm merch fach. Rwy’n siwr nad wyf ar fy hun yn y sefyllfa yma, felly creuais i’r wefan yma i geisio helpu fy hun ac eraill.

I built this website because (as a second language Welsh speaker) I neither know the words nor the tunes to any Welsh language nursery rhymes, and am learning them slowly and painfully from my wonderful and patient wife as we sing them to my wonderful daughter. Thank you both for your patience with your tone deaf father / husband, and I hope this resource helps some others out there in my position.
