Rachie
I bob un sydd ffyddlon, dan Ei faner Ef,
Mae gan Iesu goron fry yn nheyrnas nef;
Lluoedd Duw a Satan sydd yn cwrdd yn awr;
Mae gan blant eu cyfran yn y rhyfel mawr.
I bob un sydd ffyddlon dan Ei faner Ef,
Mae gan Iesu goron Fry yn nheyrnas nef.
Onward Christian Soldiers
With the cross of Jesus going on before;
Christ, the royal Master, Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle, See his banners go.
Onward, Christian soldiers, Marching as to war;
With the cross of Jesus going on before.

These are the words most commonly sung instead of
the literal translation.
