O! dawel ddinas Bethlehem

Read by John Roberts


O! dawel ddinas Bethlehem

O dan dy ser d-ri'

Ac awel fwyn Jiwdea'n dwyn

ei miwsig atat ti: 

Daw heno seren newydd, dlos

i wenu uwch dy ben

A chlywir can angylion glan

yn llifo drwy y nen. 


O! dawel ddinas Bethlehem

Bugeiliaid heno ddaw

dros bant a bryn at breseb syn

Oddi ar y meysydd draw:

A chwilio wnant am faban bach

sy'n dod yn Geidwad dyn

Yn obaith byw i ddynol-ryw -

y Bugail da ei hun.


O! dawel ddinas Bethlehem

Pwy heno ynot sydd? 

Pa ddieithr wawr sy'n i lawr? 

Pa ryw dragwyddol ddydd? 

Os cysgu'n dawel heno'r wyt

Daw golau'r penna'r nef

I'r ogof laith i ddechrau'r daith-

Gogoniant iddo ef.





O! little town of Bethlehem, beneath the countless stars, the gentle breezes of Judea bring sweet music to you.  Tonight, a new star shines above and the music of the angels flows through the heavens.


O! little town of Bethlehem, shepherds come from distant fields, over hill and vale, searching for a little baby who will become the Saviour of the world,A living hope for mankind - the Good shepherd himself.

O! little town of Bethlehem, who is within thee tonight?  What magnificent dawn, an eternal day.  As you sleep tonight, the light of heaven shines into the damp cave - Glory be to Thee.
