“Gwahoddiad” is a Welsh hymn of American origin. The tune is in 3/4 time.”Gwahoddiad” (Welsh for invitation), also known as Arglwydd Dyma Fi and by its first line Mi glywaf dyner lais, was originally the English-language gospel song “I Am Coming, Lord”, the first line of which is I Hear Thy Welcome Voice.
The English words and the tune were written in 1872 by the American Methodist minister and gospel songwriter Lewis Hartsough (1828–1919) during a revival meeting at Epworth, Iowa, where Hartsough was a minister. Hartsough was the musical editor of The Revivalist, a collection of hymns that had begun in 1868 and continued through 11 editions. The English words with Hartsough’s tune first appeared in the 1872 edition.
This arrangement is for SATB Choir and full Orchestra with an optional piano part. The English words for this version are from ‘I Hear Thy Welcome Voice’. There is a key change in the last verse (Eb to F).
