Mae 'nghariad i'n Fenws, mae 'nghariad i'n fain,
Mae 'nghariad i'n dlysach na blodau y drain.
Fy 'nghariad yw'r lana', a'r wynna'n y sir,
Nid canmol yr ydwyf, ond dwedyd y gwir.

Wych eneth fach annwyl sy'n lodes mor lan,
Ei gwyneb yn wridog a'i danedd man, man.
A'i dau lygaid gleision aid dwy ael fel gwawn,
Fy nghalon a'i carai, pe gwyddwn y cawn!

Mae 'nghariad i'n caru fel cawod o wlaw,
Weithiau ffordd yma, ac weithiau ffordd draw,
Ond cariad pur ffyddlon ni chariff ond un,
Y sawl a gar lawer, gaiff fod heb yr un.
