about

A traditional Welsh lullaby. It was first recorded in print around 1800. 
The song's title literally means lullaby (suo = lull; cân = song)

lyrics

Huna blentyn ar fy mynwes
Clyd a chynnes ydyw hon
Breichiau mam sy'n dynn amdanat
Cariad mam sy dan fy mron
Ni cha' dim amharu'th gyntun
Ni wna undyn â thi gam
Huna'n dawel, annwyl blentyn
Huna'n fwyn ar fron dy fam

Huna'n dawel, heno, huna
Huna'n fwyn, y tlws ei lun
Pam yr wyt yn awr yn gwenu
Gwenu'n dirion yn dy hun
Ai angylion fry sy'n gwenu
Arnat ti yn gwenu'n llon
Tithau'n gwenu'n ôl dan huno
Huno'n dawel ar fy mron

Paid ag ofni, dim ond deilen
Gura, gura ar y ddôr
Paid ag ofni, ton fach unig
Sua, sua ar lan y môr
Huna blentyn, nid oes yma
Ddim i roddi iti fraw
Gwena'n dawel yn fy mynwes
Ar yr engyl gwynion draw


(Translation)
Sleep child upon my bosom
It is warm and snug
Mother’s arms around you tightly
Mother's love in my heart
Nothing to harm you in your slumber
Nobody will do you any harm
Sleep quietly, dear child
Sleep gently on your mother's breast

Sleep quietly, tonight, sleep
Sleep gently, my beautiful
Why do you now smile
Smiling gently in your sleep
Are the angels above smiling
Cheerfully smiling upon you
Smiling back while you still sleeping
Sleeping quietly on my breast

Fear not, it’s only a leaf
Tapping, tapping at the door
Fear not, only a little wave
Murmur, murmuring on the seashore
Sleep my child, there is nothing
Nothing here to frighten you
Smiling quietly on my breast
At the blessed angels over there
