Calon L√Ęn¬†is a¬†Welsh¬†hymn, the words of which were written in the 1890s by¬†Daniel James (Gwyrosydd)¬†and sung to a tune by¬†John Hughes.[1]¬†The hymn has become associated with¬†Welsh rugby union, being sung before almost every¬†Test match¬†involving the¬†Welsh national team.

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.

(Chorus)

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.

(Chorus)
