Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau, Land of Our Fathers from Six Nations 2022 – The Sun

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

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

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

REALLY only the first verse and chorus are sung at sporting events, but we’ve included the entire section for you to be observant enough to see in its entirety.

Question 1

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl me 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.

Look up yn fur i’m bur hoff bau,

O bydded I’r hen iaith barhau.

    Fans raise the roof in a re-use performance

Verse 2

Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd,

Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn, I’m golwg sydd hard;

Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si

Ei nentydd, afonydd, i mi.

Sentence 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?

SPECIAL with the national anthem sung in Welsh, this is a translation only and will not be featured in the Six Nations like this.

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

Question 1

The land of my fathers dear to me,

The land of poets and singers, and great men,

Her brave warriors, good patriots,

Pour their blood for freedom.

Chorus

Soil! Soil! I’m back to my land!

As long as the sea makes a wall for this lovely and pure land.

May the language last forever.
