Our David has lived in Kent most of his life, but he is still a Welshman, prone to hiraeth. Here he has translated an Easter hymn for us. A most Celtic Theology, I feel. WT.
Great is the Lord Eternal.
Great was Christ through eternity,
Great for taking the form of man.
Great for dying on Calvary,
Great for conquering his own death.
Very glorious is he now, King of Heaven and Earth.
Great was Jesus in the purpose,
Great in the peace covenant,
Great in Bethlehem and Calvary,
Great for rising from the grave,
Very Great he’ll be one day when all things hidden are revealed.
Great is Jesus in his person,
Great as God and Great as man,
Great his beauty and amiability,
Fair and rosy –cheeked his face,
Great is He on his throne in Heaven.
