Calon Lân

Cyflwyniad

Cân Gymraeg yw Calon Lân a ysgrifennwyd yn wreiddiol fel emyn yn yr 1890au. Er bod fersiwn Sbaeneg o Calon Lân yn cael ei chanu yn bennaf yn Y Wladfa, fel arfer dim ond yn y Gymraeg y geir Calon Lân ei chanu.

Cefndir

Ysgrifennodd Daniel James geiriau Calon Lân a John Hughes y dôn. Roedd Daniel James yn un (yr ail) o bump o blant ac fe’i ganed ar 23 Ionawr 1848. Ei rieni oedd Daniel a Mary a briododd yng Nghapel Mynyddbach ym 1844 ac a oedd yn byw yn Llangyfelach Road, Treboeth, Abertawe. Yn ddiweddarach yn ei fywyd, defnyddiodd Daniel yr enw Barddol “Gwyrosydd”. Ganwyd John Hughes ym 1872 ym Mhen y Bryn, Sir Benfro, ef a gyfansoddodd a chysonodd y dôn ar wahoddiad Daniel Hughes.

Mae'r geiriau Cymraeg fel a ganlyn; 

Nid wy'n gofyn bywyd moethus,
Aur y byd na'i berlau mân:
Gofyn wyf am galon hapus,
Calon onest, calon lân.

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

Pe dymunwn olud bydol,
Hedyn buan ganddo sydd;
Golud calon lân, rinweddol,
Yn dwyn bythol elw fydd.

Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad
Gwyd i'r nef ar edyn cân
Ar i Dduw, er mwyn fy Ngheidwad,
Roddi i mi galon lân.

Trosiant Calon Lân i Saesneg

Mae'r geiriau yn Saeneg fel a ganlyn;

I don't ask for a luxurious life
the world's gold or its fine pearls,
I ask for a happy heart,
an honest heart, a pure heart.
A pure heart full of goodness
Is fairer than the pretty lily,
None but a pure heart can sing,
Sing in the day and sing in the night.
If I wished for worldly wealth,
It would swiftly go to seed;
The riches of a virtuous, pure heart
Will bear eternal profit.
(Cytgan)
Evening and morning, my wish
Rising to heaven on the wing of song
For God, for the sake of my Saviour,
To give me a pure heart.

Moth Repellent the Natural Way

Nobody loves natural fibres more than we do. Cotton, silk, cashmere, mohair and of course wool. We love them because they are less damaging to the environment, they are natural sustainable products, their breathable qualities make them soft and airy against the skin. It is therefore unfortunate that moths also like natural fibres and we need to control and eliminate them, preferably in a natural way!!!
