Beautiful! ‘Hyfrydol’ in Welsh

You don’t have to understand the language to appreciate the hymn. I don’t know how many different sets of lyrics there are for this traditional Welsh hymn; every denomination seems to have its own. But here it is in Welsh, sung by the Black Mountain Choir. I don’t understand a word of it, and yet it speaks to me. I hope it does to you, too. Lord, hear all our prayers, and be not far from us today.

    Hydrofol is like hydrofoil, a boat with wings under water to lift the boat above the chop of the waves and provide a smooth ride. Hymns using the Hydrofol music lift us above life;s troubled waters and make our trip smooth.
