Ah, the bloodstained cross of Jesus

Ah, the bloodstained cross of Jesus!
While eternal years unfold,
never shall it be forgotten
nor its riches fully told.

2. Where the heavenly harps are sounding,
one theme rings through every song:
highest praise, eternal glory
to the Lamb of God belong.

3. What can match his blood, its virtue,
saving souls by mortal pain?
Not the finest strings of heaven,
nor the sweetest angel strain.

4. Wonders from that costly suffering,
fresh delights to understand,
shall we find revealed through ages
numberless as grains of sand.

5. Ah, the sacrifice of Jesus!
Priceless to infinity—
to the end of endless ages
ever new the song shall be.

BASED ON THE HYMN ‘MAE’R GWAED A REDODD AR Y GROES,’ BY ROBERT WILLIAMS OF EIFIONYDD (ROBERT AP GWILYM DDU) 1767–1850
