Dyma Dewi Sant. Dyn da oedd Dewi. Here is Saint David. David was a good man. Symudodd Dewi a’i ffrindiau i le o’r enw Tyddewi. David and his friends moved to a place called Tyddewi. Roedd Dewi yn darllen y beibl a gweddio ar Dduw bob dydd. David read the bible and prayed to God every day. Roedd Dewi yn gweithio’n galed. Roedd e’n tynnu’r arafr yn lle yr ychen. David worked hard. He pulled the plough instead of the ox. Dyn drwg oedd Boia. Roedd e’n ceisio lladd Dewi ond roedd Duw yn helpu Dewi. Boia was a bad man. He wanted to kill David but God protected David. Helpodd Dewi fachgen dall i weld eto. Rhoddodd y bachgen hances ar y mynydd a pan safodd Dewi arno, cododd yr hances gyda Dewi arno fel roedd pawb yn gallu gweld. David helped a blind boy to see again. The boy placed a handkerchief on the floor and when David stood on it the handkerchief raised him in the air so that everybody could see him. Nawddsant Cymru ydy Dewi Sant. Saint David is the Patron Saint of Wales.
