from R R B V E Ǝ T N Ƨ O A [album] by John Harvey



ER: [unintelligible]

Choir: (Tôn: ‘Dymuniad’ [Tune: ‘Desire’])
O God the only mercy,
O Lamb that gave us glory.

ER: Do you believe that, brethren?
Do you believe that?

Choir: We do! We do!

ER: Sing it again that you believe.

Choir: (Tôn: ‘Dymuniad’ [Tune: ‘Desire’])
O God the only mercy,
O Lamb that gave us glory.

ER: You can tell some people stories in five minutes.
Here is one who rises for his gloriously.
All eternity will not suffice.
He was brought naked.
What can we give God in return?
The needs of our valuables – only a copper.
God takest [and he leaves].
God took up his cause; man cannot do less.

God spoke through prophets; he now speaking in tongues.
And his tongues say: ‘I am the way’.
A way to what?
To everything except destruction.
Hear my brethren, he gave of himself.
[unintelligible] Jesus comes out of the grave.

Men must keep their promise.
God will come unto them.

Give him all, all lands [unintelligible],
and stir up a few friends to serve God [unintelligible].
He will need thousands of friends in Wales.

Choir: Ha-ha-ha-ha!

ER/Choir: Do you not hear?

ER: Do you love Jesus?
Do resolve you: he’s the way to be free?

Choir: (Tôn: ‘Cwmnêdd’ [Tune: ‘Neath Valley’])
O the Lamb, the bleeding Lamb,
The Lamb on Calvary.
The Lamb that givest all away.
