The first verse sounds like "Dyma gariad fel y moroedd" so you might
search the web for those words. I may have a copy of the words
somewhere and I will see if I can find them - if no-one posts them then
I will try to.
It was my father's favourite hymn, which he called "Ton y botel". I
think this was the name of the music to which the words were set and he
told me that it had been found on a piece of paper in a bottle washed
More of those family stories that I take with a pinch of salt.

> On the mount of crucifixion Fountains opened deep and wide- Through
> the floodgates of God'ss mercy flowed a vast and garcious tide-
> Grace and love like mighty rivers Poured incessant from above- And
> heavn's peace and perfect justice kissed a guilty world in love."
