One from my childhood. Have played it many times in church but never learned the English words. :D
Ar Hyd Y Nos
Meinir Gwilym

Holl amrantau'r sêr ddywedant
Ar hyd y nos.
Dyma'r ffordd i fro gogoniant
Ar hyd y nos.
Golau arall yw tywyllwch,
I arddangos gwir brydferthwch,
Teulu'r nefoedd mewn tawelwch
Ar hyd y nos.
O mor siriol gwena seren
Ar hyd y nos,
I oleuo'i chwaer ddaearen
Ar hyd y nos,

Regards, Den.

Hi Den,

I know this as "All through the night". Don't know the English words either. Like your Church Organ .. and your Church Choir are in good voice.
All Through the Night is a traditional Welsh folksong which is highly popular and often considered as a Christmas Carol. The song is highly popular with Welsh male voice choirs. It is sung to a tune that was first published in 1784 as Edward Jones Musical & Poetical Relics of the Welsh Bards.

The words lyrics were originally written in Welsh by John Ceiriog Hughes and have been translated into many languages, including English.

Hi Den. Same as Hugh. Remember some of the words. Quite a haunting tune. Liked the choir and powerful finish. Can’t beat a good hymn. Enjoyed my Sunday afternoon listen after a morning at the allotment. Can’t wait for dinner with the fresh vegetables. John
