Lullaby Lyrics

Suo-Gan
Welsh Lullaby

To my lullaby surrender
Warm and tender is my breast
Mother’s arms with love caressing
Lay their blessing on your rest
Nothing shall tonight alarm you
None shall harm you, have no fear
Lie contented, calmly slumber
On your mother’s breast, my dear

Here tonight I tightly hold you
And enfold you while you sleep
Why, I wonder, are you smiling
Smiling in your slumber deep?
Are the angels on you smiling
And beguiling you with charm
While you also smile, my blossom
In my bosom soft and warm?

Have no fear now, leaves are knocking
Gently knocking at our door
Have no fear now, waves are beating
Gently beating on the shore
Sleep, my darling, none shall harm you
Nor alarm you, never cry
In my bosom sweetly smiling
And beguiling those on high

(Alternate Lyrics)
Sleep, my baby, on my bosom,
Closely nestle, safe and warm;
Mother wakeful, watches o’er you,
Nothing threatens here your rest;
Sleep, my baby, sleep and fear not,
Sleep you sweetly on my breast.

Lulla, lulla sweetly slumber,
Mother’s treasure, slumber deep;
Lulla, lulla now you’re smiling,
Smiling, dear one through your sleep.
Say, are angels bending o’er you,
Smiling down from heaven above?
Is that heavenly smile your answer,
Love from dreamland answering love?

Hush my treasure, ’tis a leaflet
Beating, beating on the door;
Hush, my pretty, ’tis the ripple
Lapping, lapping on the shore.
Mother watches, nought can harm you,
Angel warders gather nigh;
Blessed angels bending o’er you,
Sing your lulla, lullaby.

Hunan blentyn, ar fy mynwes
Clyd a chynnes ydyw hon
Breichiau mam sy’n dyn amdanat
Cariad mam sy dan fy mron
Ni chaiff dim amharu’th gyntun Ni wna undyn a thi gam
Huna’n dawel, annwyl bientyn
Huna’n fwyn ar fron dy fam

Huna’n dawel hana huna
Huna’n fwyn y del ei lun
Pam yr wyt yn awr yn gwenum
Gwenu’n dirion yn dy hun
Ai angylion fry sy’n gwenu
Arnat yno’n gwenu’n lion
Titha’u’n gwenu’n ol a huno
Huno’n dawel ar fy mron

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