Geiriau:
Colli iaith a cholli urddas,
Colli awen, colli barddas;
Colli coron aur cymdeithas
Ac yn eu lle cael bratiaith fas.

Colli'r hen alawon persain,
Colli'r corau'n diasbedain
Colli tannau'r delyn gywrain;
Ac yn eu lle cael clebar brain.

Colli crefydd, colli enaid,
Colli ffydd yr hen wroniaid;
Colli popeth glân a thelaid
Ac yn eu lle cael baw a llaid.

Colli tir a cholli tyddyn,
Colli Elan a Thryweryn;
Colli Claerwen a Llanwddyn
A'r wlad i gyd dan ddŵr llyn.

Cael yn ôl o borth marwolaeth
Gân a ffydd a bri yr heniaith;
Cael yn ôl yr hen dreftadaeth
A Chymru'n cychwyn ar ei hymdaith.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION:
Losing language and losing dignity,
Losing muse and losing bardism,
Losing the golden crown of society
And in its place a shallow debased language .

Losing the old sweet-sounding strains,
Losing the harp's skillful strings,
Losing the resounding choirs
And in its place the clamor of crows.

Losing creed, losing soul
Losing the faith of the old brave people,
Losing everything pure and beautiful
And in its place dirt and mud.

Losing land and losing small-holdings,
Losing Elan and Tryweryn,
Losing Claerwen and Llanwyddyn
And the whole country beneath a lake's water.

Getting back from the door of death
A song and faith and respect for the old language;
Getting back the old heritage
And Wales begins her own journey.
