    Ar Hyd y Nos Lyrics - All Through the Night

    Ar hyd y Nos (All through the Night) is a beautiful Welsh folk song and hymn. It has been sung by many famous singers and choirs including Bryn Terfel and Cerys Mathews and even the Australian Olivia Newton John. The song title is also mentioned in Max Boyce's Hymns and Arias! The melody is used in the hymns "Go My Children with My Blessing” (1983) and “God That Madest Earth and Heaven” (1827). 

    The tune was first published in 1784, appearing in Edward Jones' "Musical and Poetical Relics of the Welsh Bards". The composer is unknown to this date. The Welsh Ar hyd y Nos lyrics that are most often sung today were written by John Ceiriog Hughes (1832–1887). The most common English lyrics were written by Sir Harold Boulton in 1884 which are not a literal translation.

    Cymraeg English Translation
    Holl amrantau'r sêr ddywedant
    Ar hyd y nos
    "Dyma'r ffordd i fro gogoniant,"
    Ar hyd y nos.
    Golau arall yw tywyllwch
    I arddangos gwir brydferthwch
    Teulu'r nefoedd mewn tawelwch
    Ar hyd y nos.
    Hyd y nos.
    O mor siriol, gwena'r seren
    Ar hyd y nos
    I oleuo'i chwaer ddaearen
    Ar hyd y nos.
    Nos yw henaint pan ddaw cystudd
    Ond i harddu dyn a'i hwyrddydd
    Rhown ein golau gwan i'n gilydd
    Ar hyd y nos.
    Hyd y nos.
    All the stars' twinkles say
    All through the night
    "This is the way to the realm of glory,"
    All through the night.
    Other light is darkness
    To show true beauty
    The Heavenly family in peace
    All through the night.
    Through the night.
    O, how cheerful smiles the star,
    All through the night
    To light its earthly sister
    All through the night.
    Old age is night when affliction comes
    But to beautify man in his late days
    We'll put our weak light together
    All through the night.
    Through the night.
