Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o
fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr,
gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad,
Tra mor yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O budded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau
Land of My Fathers
The land of my fathers, the land of my
choice,
The land in which poets and minstrels
rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were
true to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.
Wales, Wales, favorite land of Wales!
While sea her wall, may naught befall
To mar the old language of Wales.

But music in your blood
and poetry in your soul ..."

For 2016 and 2017
We had over 50 singers participating in our Gymanfa Ganu at beautiful Glenridge on Saturday,
January 23rd, prior to our
Annual Meeting Luncheon. What a beautiful sound!

John Garrison conducted and helped us pronounce some Welsh words and we sang in both
Welsh and English. Mona Garrison accompanied us. The Garrison children sang to us in Welsh,
too.

Delightful!
