Original[edit]

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.

O mor siriol gwena 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.

Translation[edit]

Sleep my love, and peace attend thee
All through the night;
Guardian angels God will lend thee,
All through the night,
Soft the drowsy hours are creeping,
Hill and vale in slumber steeping,
I my loving vigil keeping,
All through the night.

Angels watching ever round thee,
All through the night,
In thy slumbers close surround thee,
All through the night,
They should of all fears disarm thee,
No forebodings should alarm thee,
They will let no peril harm thee,
All through the night.
