Who needs good words.

sparktastic was asking about favourite carols.

I'd like to offer one which, while it's not my favourite as such, is particularly appropriate this week.

O deued pob Cristion
i Fethlem yr awrhon,
i weled mor dirion yw'n Duw;
O ddyfnder rhyfeddod!
fe drefnodd y Duwdod
dragwyddol gyfamod i fyw!
Anyone who thinks of themselves as poor,
come here and don't be shy.
Jesus, who loves us more than I can describe
was put in that poor manger.

Daeth Brenin yr hollfyd
i oedfa ein hadfyd
er symud ein penyd a'n pwn;
heb le yn y llety,
heb aelwyd, heb wely,
Nadolig fel hynny gadd hwn!
Although the wise men surrounded him with the richest gifts,
even so, the animals surrounded him with their hay.
Jesus, because he loves us so much,
was pleased to be put in that poor manger.

Rhown glod i'r Mab bychan,
ar liniau Mair wiwlan --
daeth Duwdod mewn Baban i'n byd!
Ei ras, O derbyniwn,
ei haeddiant cyhoeddwn,
a throsto ef gweithiwn i gyd.
So praise him,
because he loves us no matter what we do.
We can see just how much he loves us when we see
that he was pleased to be put in that poor manger.

Tywysog tangnefedd
wha'n daear o'r diwedd
yn aelwyd gyfannedd i fyw;
ni fegir cenfigen,
na chynnwrf, na chynnen --
dan goron bydd diben ein Duw.

Christ will look after us, and feed us,
and stay with us until the end of time.
Then, all ill-will and sorrow will be gone,
and death and despair will disappear.

Yn frodyr i'n gilydd
drigolion y gwledydd,
cawn rodio yn hafddydd y nef;
ein disgwyl yn Salem,
i ganu yr anthem
ddechreuwyd ym Methlem, mae ef.
He will reign for ever,
nothing will cut us off from His love,
His city will be full of peace and love,
and we will constantly praise Him.

Rhown glod i'r Mab bychan,
ar liniau Mair wiwlan --
daeth Duwdod mewn Baban i'n byd!
Ei ras, O derbyniwn,
ei haeddiant cyhoeddwn,
a throsto ef gweithiwn i gyd.
So praise him,
because he loves us no matter what we do.
We can see just how much he loves us when we see
that he was pleased to be put in that poor manger.


Apologies for any typos -- this isn't my first language.
