Saint David of Wales

who didst call thy servant David
to be a faithful and wise steward of thy mysteries
for the people of Wales:
in thy mercy, grant that, following his purity of life
and zeal for the gospel of Christ,
and assisted by his prayers,
we may with him receive the crown of everlasting life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord,
to whom with thee and the Holy Ghost
be all honour and glory, world without end. Amen.

O GOD, who raised Blessed David to be an Apostle and patron for your people in Wales, grant, we implore, that through his prayers the people may be restored to the truth which he taught, and to attain to everlasting life. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

O DDUW a gyfododd y bendigedig Ddewi yn Apostol ac yn noddwr I’th bobl yng Nghymru, caniata, atolygwn arnat, trwy ei eiriolaeth edfryd y bobl hyn I’r gwirionedd a ddysgwyd ganddo ef, a chael ohonynt fywyd tragwyddol. Trwy Iesu Grist ein Harglwydd. Amen.
