Calon Lan - Lyrics by Daniel James (1848-1920) and music by John Hughes (1872-1914).

A splendid Welsh tune ideally suited for the brass band with its proud and superb sound. I hope you enjoy my arrangement.

Calon lân yn llawn daioni, Tecach yw na'r lili dlos: Dim ond calon lân all ganu Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.

Pe dymunwn olud bydol, Hedyn buan ganddo sydd; Golud calon lân, rinweddol, Yn dwyn bythol elw fydd.

Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad Gwyd i'r nef ar edyn cân Ar i Dduw, er mwyn fy Ngheidwad, Roddi i mi galon lân.

Calon Lân English Translation

The meaning of the lyrics to Calon Lân is as follows;

I don't ask for a luxurious life the world's gold or its fine pearls, I ask for a happy heart, an honest heart, a pure heart.

A pure heart full of goodness Is fairer than the pretty lily, None but a pure heart can sing, Sing in the day and sing in the night.

If I wished for worldly wealth, It would swiftly go to seed; The riches of a virtuous, pure heart Will bear eternal profit.


Evening and morning, my wish Rising to heaven on the wing of song For God, for the sake of my Saviour, To give me a pure heart.
