Cwm Rhondda (Guide me, O thou great Redeemer, and sometimes referred to as Bread of Heaven ) : My favourite Welsh Hymn Tune, from wayback to my teenage years, written by John Hughes (1873 - 1932) and Welsh Lyrics by William Williams (1717 - 1791). with English Translations by Peter Williams (1727 - 1796) Played by Miss Denise Erica Hewitt on Electronic Synthesiser Keyboard in Church Organ Mode.

1) Guide me, o thou great Redeemer,
pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty:
hold me with thy powerful hand:
bread of heaven, bread of heaven,
feed me now and evermore.

2) Open now the crystal fountain
whence the healing stream doth flow
let the fiery cloudy pillar
lead me all my journey through:
strong deliverer, strong deliverer,
be thou still my strength and shield.

3) When I tread the verge of Jordan
bid my anxious fears subside:
death of death. and hell's destruction
land me safe on Canaan's side:
songs and praises, song and praises,
I will ever give to thee.
