A: 
Huna blentyn yn 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  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 l dan huno, 
Huno'n dawel ar fy mron? 
Paid ag ofni, dim ond deilen 
Gura, gura ar y ddr; 
Paid ag ofni, ton fach unig 
Sua, sua ar lan y mr; 
Huna blentyn, nid oes yma 
Ddim i roddi iti fraw; 
Gwena'n dawel yn fy mynwes 
Ar yr engyl gwynion draw.  Sleep my baby, at my breast, 
'Tis a mother's arms round you. 
Make yourself a snug, warm nest. 
Feel my love forever new. 
Harm will not meet you in sleep, 
Hurt will always pass you by. 
Child beloved, always you'll keep, 
In sleep gentle, mother's breast nigh. 
Sleep in peace tonight, sleep, 
O sleep gently, what a sight. 
A smile I see in slumber deep, 
What visions make your face bright? 
Are the angels above smiling, 
At you in your peaceful rest? 
Are you beaming back while in 
Peaceful slumber on mother's breast? 
Do not fear the sound, it's a breeze 
Brushing leaves against the door. 
Do not dread the murmuring seas, 
Lonely waves washing the shore. 
Sleep child mine, there's nothing here, 
While in slumber at my breast, 
Angels smiling, have no fear, 
Holy angels guard your rest.

A: "Suo Gan." It is not a breeze but the wind howling at the door, making the leaves rustle against the window panes, the mother is reassuring the child. Not trying to scare 10 years growth out of it! gdh (thanks to geraint davies hughes (gazza), Treffynnon sir y fflint cymru (am in arizona usa)add more info
