Am hynny a byddwn yn barod
« on: Friday 16 September 05 13:03 BST (UK) »
"Am hynny a byddwn yn barod
Bob un i gwfarfod a'i douw
Nis Gwyddon pa awr na pha gyfnod
Rhaid myned o dir y rhai byw'"

This is writen on a memorial tablet.
Does anyone know the source? Is it from a hymn?

Hi there,

I've asked friends about the verse but, unfortunately, they cannot tell me from whence it originates.It could be part of a hymn or part of a prayer or even made up as a poem.

It translates to:

For this we will be ready
Each one to meet with his God
We don't know what hour or period
We must leave from the land of the ones living.

In other words, be prepared, at all times, to meet your God.

Best wishes......   :)
