Anthem of Calbion
Calbion, fy Gwlad y Adra
The song "Calbion, fy Gwlad y Adra" was the official anthem of Calbion during the Southbatavian period. The song was a popular folk song, written by Alun Morgan, and received official status by proclamation of King Jack I.
Wlad lle y dreigiau a duwiau yn byw.
Gwlad lle mae fy rhieni, a fy mhobl yn byw.
Gwlad y Calbain yw fy nhy
a bydd yn parhau.
Wlad brydferth yw fy nhy, a bydd yn parhau.
Land where the dragons and the gods lived.
Land where my parents and my people live.
Calbion it is my home,
and will remain that for ever.
This splendid nation is my home and will remain that for ever.
Calon Lân has probably been the most popular hymn in Calbion. It used to have official status as anthem since the Calbain declaration of independence and has continued to be performed on official occasions such as sport matches under the Brettish protectorate. The song is also the anthem of the Calbain Catologian church.

Nid wy'n gofyn bywyd moethus,
Pe dymunwn olud bydol,
Hwyr a bore fy nymuniad
I don't ask for a luxurious life,
If I wished for worldly wealth,
Evening and morning, my wish
I’d not ask a life that’s easy,
I seek not life's ease and pleasures,
If I cherish earthly treasures,
Morn and evening my petition,
