Dear All, I am looking for the source of the haunting theme to Steven Spielberg's 1987 film "Empire of the Sun." I have heard that: 1) It is a Welsh hymn

2) It is a Welsh lullaby

Years ago I WAS given lullaby lyrics in English to fit the tune, but I have no way of knowing if it is even a translation of the orginal. Does any one have the words in Welsh or English?

Sincerely, Mary
