This year marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of William Williams Pantecelyn.

Sadly this great hymn has become just a rugby anthem in Wales. It was even sung in Rhodri Morgan’s humanist funeral recently as a celebration of Welsh culture! The words,however,contain the message of the Christian faith which Williams believed passionately. He travelled extensively throughout Wales teaching this message until his death on January 11th 1791 aged 74.
