Nos galan

First line:
Oer yw'r gwr sy'n methu caru
Welsh traditional carol
author of text

The merry, dance-like tune of this carol is widely familiar to the text Deck the hall with boughs of holly, but the original Welsh text is unrelated to it, though it does share a New Year theme. Words and music first appeared in a 1784 collection Musical and Poetical Relicks of the Welsh Bards edited by the Welsh harpist Edward Jones.
