Nid wy'n gofyn bywyd moethus,
Aur y byd na'I berlau mвn:
Gofyn wyf am galon hapus,
Calon onest, calon lвn.

Calon lвn yn llawn daioni,
Tecach yw na'r lili dlos:
Dim ond calon lвn all ganu
Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.

Pe dymunwn olud bydol,
Hedyn buan ganddo sydd;
Golud calon lвn, rinweddol,
Yn dwyn bythol elw fydd.

Calon lвn yn llawn daioni,
Tecach yw na'r lili dlos:
Dim ond calon lвn all ganu
Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.

Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad
Gwyd I'r nef ar adain cвn
Ar I Dduw, er mwyn fy Ngheidwad,
Roddi I mi galon lвn.

Calon lвn yn llawn daioni,
Tecach yw na'r lili dlos:
Dim ond calon lвn all ganu
Canu'r dydd a chanu'r nos.

    I am montee domingo from the western part philippines down south... I have never heard the song neither understand every line of it... But the melody and the strength of the song moved me and touched my heart... It was only after 2 months where i finally searched the lyrics of it... Then i had goose bumps upon knowing what the song means... God bless the pure heart... Muchas gracias only boys aloud... You make me proud...

    Translation from the welsh version:

    A pure heart

    I'd not ask a life that's easy
    Gold and pearls so little mean
    Rather seek a heart that's joyful
    Heart that's honest, heart that's clean

    Heart that's clean and filled with virtue,
    Fairer far than lilies white
    Only pure hearts praise god truly,
    Praise him all the day and night.

    A pure heart, a pure heart.
    Praise him all the day and night

    Dawn and sunset still i'm searching,
    Rising on a wing of song,
    Give me lord through christ our saviour,
    That clean heart for which i long

    I am welsh and proud
    On bgt i think that boys aloud are going to win because of this amazing song thank you ever so much cerys mathews come on only boys aloud do us proud !!! Xxx by the way this is what calon lan means
    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 is full of goodness,
    More lovely than the pretty lily:
    Only a pure heart can sing -
    Sing day and night.

    If i wished worldly wealth,
    He has a swift seed;
    The riches of a virtuous, pure heart,
    Will be a perpetual profit.

    Late and early, my wish
    Rise to heavan on the wing of song,
    To god, for the sake of my saviour,
    Give me a pure heart.
