From the Daily Mirror 21st January 1913

 
 

Can y Castell (Sarnicol)

 
                                                                                                                    

Ienctyd y Castell, caer i ddysg a hedd,
Gloewn ein harfau i'r gad ddi-gledd;
Byddwn yn deilwng blant i enwog lu,
Dewrion Morgannwg y dyddiau fu;
Byddwn yn deilwng blant i enwog lu,
Dewrion wyr Morgannwg y dyddiau fu;

Ienctyd y Castell, awn ymlaen o hyd,
Galw am ein gorau mae'r eang fyd;
Gorau gyda chwarae, gorau gyda gwaith,
Gluda glod ein Castell drwy'r ddaear faith

Gorau gyda chwarae, gorau gyda gwaith,

Gluda glod y Castell drwy'r ddaear faith.
