Robin Redbreast
Robin Goch

Melody - Carnarvonshire

English lyrics, 2nd and 3rd verse: Llew Tegid

Welcome Robin with thy greeting,
On the threshold meekly waiting,
To the children's home now enter,
|: From the cold of snow of winter. :|

2. Art thou cold? or art thou hungry?
Pretty Robin, don't be angry,
All the children round thee rally,
|: While the snow is in the valley. :|

3. Come in Robin, do not fear us,
Thy bright eye and chirping cheer us;
Thy sad notes excite our pity,
|: Now the frost begins to bite thee. :|

4. Robin, come and tell thy story,
Leave outside thy care and worry;
Tell the children, Robin dearest,
|: Of the babies in the forest. :|

5. Of the flame that burnt thy bosom,
Of thy wand'rings far and lonesome,
Of thy home among the greenwood,
|: Of thy happy days of childhood. :|
