Tydi a wnaeth y wyrth, O! Grist, Fab Duw,
Tydi a roddaist imi flas ar fyw;
Fa gydaist ynof dy Ysbryd Glan,
Ni allaf, tra bwyf byw, ond canu'r gan;
'Rwyf heddiw'n gweld yr
Harddwch sy'n bywiocau;
Mae'r Haleliwia yn fy enaid i,
A rhoddaf, Iesu, fy mawrhad i Ti.

2. Tydi yw Haul fy nydd, O! Grist y Groes,
Yr wyt yn hrddu holl orwelion f'oes;
Lle'r oedd cysgodion nos, mae llif y wawr,
Lle'r oeddwn gynt yn ddall, 'rwy'n gweld yn awr;
Mae golau imi yn de Berson hael,
Penllane fy ngorfoledd yw dy gael;
Mae'r Haleliwia yn fy enaid i,
A rhoddaf, Iesu, fy mawrhad i Ti.

3. Tydi sy'n haeddu'r clod, Ddihalog Un,
Mae ystr bywyd ynot Ti dy Hun;
Yr wyt yn llawr'r gwacter trwy dy Air,
Daw'r pell yn agos ynot, O Fab Mair;
Mae melodiau'r cread er dy fwyn,
Mi welaf dy ogoniant ar bob twyn;
Mae'r Haleliwia yn fy enaid i,
A rhoddaf, Iesu, fy mawrhad i Ti.

You did this mighty deed, Oh! Christ God's son,
You gave me joy anew the race to run;
Your Spirit held and guided me along
Forever more I'll sing the glorious song
I see the beauty now that can survive,
I feel the touch divine that makes alive;
The Hallelujah has possessed my soul,
To You, O! Christ, I give my praises all.

2. You are my Sun, O! Christ of Calvary,
You beatify the whole of life for me;
The gleaming dawn makes all the shadows flee,
I now have sight where once I could not see;
Your gracious Life upon my path sheds light,
To cherish You is my supreme delight;
The Hallelujah has possessed my soul,
To you, O! Christ, I give my praises all.

3. To you belongs all honour Holy One,
Life's purpose can be found in You alone;
Your Word sustains and moves in every sphere,
O! Mary's Son, in you the far is near;
To You belongs the praise creation sings,
And I behold your glory in all things;
The Hallelujah has possessed my soul,
To you, O! Christ, I give my praises all.
