Ar y drydedd awr o’r dydd; At the third hour of the day;Dewch, O ie’netyd, ar y chweched, Come, O young people, at the sixth,
I’r winllan galwad i chwi sydd; To the vineyard a call to you there is;Dewch, rai ereill ar y nawfed, Come, some others at the ninth,
Cyn yr elo hi’n brydnawn; Before the afternoon goes;Dewch, hen bobl, cyn deuddegfed, Come, old people, before the twelfth,
Hi aeth yn ddiweddar iawn. It has become very late.
I remember the verse and that it was sung, but I cannot recall how many times it was sung, nor for how long it was sung, nor even what tune the verse was sung to; but I think thatMany were received in Defynog, in Brychgoed, in Crai, and in Trecastle, of young people and old, so that the souls of the disciples were renewed; yes, and the face of the earth was renewed. The names of Brychgoed, Pentre, Crai, and Trecastle, and Baili-du, became as if they were new names, and the names of the preachers as if they were new names, and the names of religious duties as if they were new names, and the names of the doctrines of the Christian Religion as if they were new names, and the names of the old houses where the meetings were held previously as if they were new names, yes, each and every thing as if it were altogether new, so that it could be said, with the Apostle Paul, ‘Behold, all things are made new.’ One could stand on top of the hills, and in the meeting houses, and by the doors of the houses, and go to the people in the fields, and say, ‘Behold;’ and if any strange person were to ask, ‘What’s the matter?’ one could answer singing and dancing, ‘All things are made new.’ One could say, ‘A new Defynog village, a new Brychgoed, a new Crai, a new Trecastle.’ Many were received in Brychgoed, old and young, and among the adults, my dear mother was received, and Pally, the wife of John Phillip Thomas, and Thomas, the husband of Pally Morgan Rees. Richard Thomas Jenkins was also received, in his old age. [[Lewis Powell], Hanes Bywyd y Parch.
