Wales national anthem lyrics: Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau – words to Land of Our Fathers for Six Nations 2022 rugby rugby

THERE are very few national anthems in the world that are sung with the pride and ferocity of Wales’ Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau.

The song, which translates into English as ‘Land of my Fathers’, is one of the most recognisable in global sport – not least international rugby and football matches.

What are the lyrics to Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau in Welsh?

USUALLY only the first verse and the chorus is sung at sporting events, but we’ve included the whole lot for you lot keen enough to see the whole thing.

Verse 1 

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,

Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;

Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mad,

Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.

Chorus

Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i’m gwlad.

Tra môr yn fur i’r bur hoff bau,

O bydded i’r hen iaith barhau.

Verse 2

Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd,

Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn, i’m golwg sydd hardd;

Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si

Ei nentydd, afonydd, i mi.

Verse 3

Os treisiodd y gelyn fy ngwlad tan ei droed,

Mae hen iaith y Cymru mor fyw ag erioed,

Ni luddiwyd yr awen gan erchyll law brad,

Na thelyn berseiniol fy ngwlad.

What are the lyrics in English?

OBVIOUSLY with the anthem being sung in Welsh, this is only the translation and won’t be belted out during the Six Nations like this.

But it’s good know what the lyrics mean – and they’re suitably patriotic.

Verse 1

This land of my fathers is dear to me,

Land of poets and singers, and people of stature,

Her brave warriors, fine patriots,

Shed their blood for freedom.

Chorus

Land! Land! I am true to my land!

As long as the sea serves as a wall for this pure, dear land.

May the language endure for ever.
