And a Happy Saint Daivid's Day! to all who are Welch, and to all Royal Welch Fusiliers past and present.

Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra md,
Tros ryddid gollasant eu gwaed.

Gwlad, Gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad,
Tra mr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r heniaith barhau.

Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd,
Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn, i'm golwg sydd hardd;
Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si
Ei nentydd, afonydd, i mi.

Os treisiodd y gelyn fy ngwlad dan ei droed,
Mae hen iaith y Cymry mor fyw ag erioed,
Ni luddiwyd yr awen gan erchyll law brad,
Na thelyn berseiniol fy ngwlad.

Side question: how do you pronounce "Diolch yn Fawr", phonetically?

Asking for a friend. ;)

Well Lugal hadn I'll give it a go. First off the ch at the end of Diolch is difficult to show phonetically, many people think it's a harsh sound but it's actually a soft gentle sound. Place the tip of your tongue in the roof of your mouth and push air from the back of your throat through your mouth and out over the lips.

The rest of the sentence is easy it's Dee ol ch un vawrrr when you get to the ch carry out the instruction above :)

So not a "hard" ch, and no crazy "this syllable only exists to make that letter sound different" rules like Irish.

Got it.

Also, forgive me for comparing Welsh to Irish! :)
