Hen Wlad fy Nhadau
(Land of my Fathers)
(The Unofficial Welsh National Anthem*)
Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion enwogion o fri
Ei gwrol ryfelwr, gwlad garwyr tra mad
Tros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.
Pleidiol wyf i’m gwlad,
Tra môr yn fur i’r bur hoff bau
O bydded i’r hen iaith barhau

Land of my Fathers, O land of the free,
A land of poets and minstrels, famed men.
Her brave warriors, patriots much blessed,
It was for freedom that they lost their blood.
I am devoted to my country.
So long as the sea is a wall to this fair beautiful land,
May the ancient language remain.
(* The unofficial Welsh anthem by tradition, since 1905. It has not been established as a national anthem by law, but it has been used as a national anthem at official governmental ceremonies)
