English by John Peter Stephens

You're known to Welshmen free,
Fairest Gwen, fairest Gwen,
From Gower to Anglesey,
Fairest Gwen,
That castle by the dell there,
A noble people dwell there.
This night we can spend well there.
Won't you come now? Come now, Gwen.

2. Do not ride farther on,
Fairest Gwen, fairest Gwen.
The day will soon be gone.
Fairest Gwen,
Oh, put your hand in mine now,
And do not fall behind now.
A castle bed we'll find now.
Won't you come now? Come now, Gwen.

3. This castle's owned by me,
Fairest Gwen, fairest Gwen.
Inside it you can be,
Fairest Gwen,
As queen of Castle Grogen
For cherished years unbroken,
And take me in the bargain.
Won't you come now? Come now, Gwen.
