Welsh lullabye


Listening to: Argwydd Dyma Fi - Cerys Matthews - Cockahoop
My nerves are still rattled by this afternoon's incident, even if I wasn't physically there. I seem to be easily rattled these days. I normally eschew quoting lyrics. But this one's different. It's Welsh, and it's doing a darn good job of soothing my nerves, even if I don't know what the words mean. Mi glywaf dyner lais Yn galw arnaf i I ddod a golchi meiau Yn afon Calfari Arglwydd dyma fi Ar dy alwad di Canna fenaid yn y gwaed A gaed ar Galfari Yr Iesu sydd im gwadd I dderbyn gydai saint Fydd gobaith cariad pur a hedd A phob rhyw nefol fraint Arglwydd dyma fi Ar dy alwad di Canna fenaid yn y gwaed A gaed ar Galfari Cogoniant byth am drefn Y cymod ar glanhad Derbynia Iesu fel yr wyf A chanaf am y gwaed -Arglwydd Dyma Fi (traditional) - arr. Cerys Mathhews It's nice probably because: 1) It's Welsh 2) It's Country!!! (love ya Cerys, Country music Rocks (ummm...)). 3) It's putting me to sleep. Ya know, I probably could write a Welsh verse or twenty just by putting my palms across the entire computer keyboard. Try it. You know you wanna.
