    Ar Lan y Môr: Lyrics

    "Ar Lan y Môr" (Beside the Sea or By the Sea) is a popular, traditional Welsh folk song - it is also a love song about a girl named Elin. It was first published in the Journal of the Welsh Folk-Song Society in 1937. Since that time, it has been sung by many famous singers including in more recent times, Aled Jones, Ar Log, Bryn Terfel, Dafydd Iwan, Elin Fflur, Endaf Emlyn, Max Boyce, Only Men aloud and Katherine Jenkins to name just a few! Plus a few male Voice Choirs!

    Ar lan y môr mae rhosys cochion
    Ar lan y môr mae lilis gwynion
    Ar lan y môr mae 'nghariad inne
    Yn cysgu'r nos a chodi'r bore.

    Ar lan y môr mae carreg wastad
    Lle bûm yn siarad gair â'm cariad
    O amgylch hon fe dyf y lili
    Ac ambell gangen o rosmari.

    Ar lan y môr mae cerrig gleision
    Ar lan y môr mae blodau'r meibion
    Ar lan y môr mae pob rinweddau
    Ar lan y môr mae nghariad innau.

    Llawn yw'r môr o swnd a chegryn
    Llawn yw'r wy o wyn a melyn
    Llawn yw'r coed o ddail a blode
    Llawn o gariad merch wyf inne.

    Mor hardd yw'r haul yn codi'r bore
    Mor hardd yw'r enfys aml ei liwie
    Mor hardd yw natur ym Mehefin
    Ond harddach fyth yw wyneb Elin

    Down by the sea red roses are blooming;
    Down by the sea white lilies are gleaming;
    Down by the sea my true love is dwelling,
    Sleeping all night, rising up in the morning

    Down where the sea laps at the flat rock
    My love and I did wander and talk;
    All around us grew the white lily,
    And there were sprigs of rosemary.

    By the seaside are blue stones
    By the seaside are the sons’ flowers
    By the seaside is every virtue
    By the seaside is my sweetheart.

    Full the sea of sand and billows
    Full the egg of whites and yellows
    Full the woods of leaf and flower
    Full my heart of love for ever.

    Fair the sun at new day’s dawning
    Fair the rainbow’s colours shining
    Fair the summer, fair as heaven
    Fairer yet the face of Elin
