David is old and dying on the white rock. He asks for his harp one last time, and composes this song, which he requests be performed at his funeral. This tune is Welsh traditional, and is sung in Welsh.


"Cariwch," medd Dafydd,
"fy nhelyn i mi,

Ceisiaf cyn marw
roi tôn arni hi.

Codwch fy nwylaw
i gyrhaedd y tant;

Duw a'ch bendithio
fy ngweddw a'm plant!"

"Neithiwr mi glywais
lais angel fel hyn:
Dafydd, tyrd adref,
a chwarae trwy'r glyn!'

Delyn fy mebyd,
ffarwel i dy dant!

Duw a'ch bendithio
fy ngweddw a'm plant!"
