Ar Hyd Y Nos traditional Welsh melody; harmony by Luther O. Emerson, 1906 (🔊 pdf nwc).

’Tis the Church triumphant singing,
Worthy the Lamb!
Heav’n throughout with praises ringing,
Worthy the Lamb!
Thrones and powers before Him bending,
Odors sweet with voice ascending,
Swell the chorus never ending,
Worthy the Lamb!

Every kindred, tongue and nation—
Worthy the Lamb!
Join to sing the great salvation;
Worthy the Lamb!

Loud as mighty thunders roaring,
Floods of mighty waters pouring,
Prostrate at his feet adoring,
Worthy the Lamb!

Harps and song for ever sounding,
Worthy the Lamb!
Mighty grace o’er sin abounding,
Worthy the Lamb!
By His blood He dearly bought us;
Wandering from the fold He sought us;
And to glory, safely brought us:
Worthy the Lamb!
