Lyrics: Anon (Welsh) trans. Evan Evans

Had I but the torrent's might,
With headlong rage and wild affright,
On Deira's squadrons hurl'd,
To rush and sweep them from the world.
To Mona's vales, in glittering row,
Twice ten hundred warriors go;
Flush'd with mirth and hope they burn,
But none from Mona's vales return
Save I, the meanest of them all,
Who live to sing and weep their fall.
