27 Jan A Pure Heart
Emma and Colin tied the knot at The Ironmongers Hall in London last December. What a venue to get married in!?! A truly stunning venue that we were blown away with to film at. Being Welsh it was a novelty filming another Welsh wedding in London. The bride and her Father walked into the venue and down the aisle to a Welsh song Calon Lan, it almost had me in tears, but I just about kept it together. The song talks of a pure heart and a happy heart and The father of the bride reflected during the speeches on Emma now having a happy heart as she had married Colin, just beautiful!
Calon Lân – English
I don’t ask for a luxurious life,
the world’s gold or its fine pearls,
I ask for a happy heart,
an honest heart, a pure heart.
- A pure heart full of goodness
- Is fairer than the pretty lily,
- None but a pure heart can sing,
- Sing in the day and sing in the night.
If I wished for worldly wealth,
It would swiftly go to seed;
The riches of a virtuous, pure heart
Will bear eternal profit.
Evening and morning, my wish
Rising to heaven on the wing of song
For God, for the sake of my Saviour,
To give me a pure heart.
Calon Lân – Welsh
Nid wy’n gofyn bywyd moethus,
Aur y byd na’i berlau mân:
Gofyn wyf am galon hapus,
Calon onest, calon lân.
- Calon lân yn llawn daioni,
- Tecach yw na’r lili dlos:
- Dim ond calon lân all ganu
- Canu’r dydd a chanu’r nos.
Pe dymunwn olud bydol,
Hedyn buan ganddo sydd;
Golud calon lân, rinweddol,
Yn dwyn bythol elw fydd.
Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad
Gwyd i’r nef ar adain cân
Ar i Dduw, er mwyn fy Ngheidwad,
Roddi i mi galon lân.
