Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr,
gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad,
Tra mor yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O budded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau
Land of My Fathers
The land of my fathers, the land of my choice,
The land in which poets and minstrels rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were true to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.
Wales, Wales, favorite land of Wales!
While sea her wall, may naught befall
To mar the old language of Wales.

The Gulf Coast Welsh Society
(Sarasota Welsh) is a not for profit
corporation
dedicated to the preservation of Welsh
heritage and culture.
To be born Welsh
is to be born privileged,
Not with a silver spoon in
your mouth,
But music in your blood
and poetry in your soul ...
