Sample text:

“Gwenllian’s Tears”


Cry out for me, my people.

Where my blood was spilt, let your voices be heard forever more.

Cymru in all your glory: 

Deheubarth, Gwynedd, Ceredigion, Powys, Dyfed

Ynys Môn where I was born!

Let not these conquerors go unanswered

Swear to me you shall never forget.

We are Cymraeg.

We are forever.
