Subject: [Dyfed] WELSH REVIVAL of 1904
I received a letter from one of our church members giving me some
to a hymn called "There's Power of the Blood." It goes
Here is love vast as the ocean-
Loving kindness as the flood-
When the Prince of Life, our ransom, shed for us His precious Blood.
It was apparently written during the Welsh Revivial of 1904. It does
appear in any of our church's hymn books and we have never sang it.
There seem to be two different hymns here. The text and tunes of both can
be found and heard on the Cyberhymnal website http://www.cyberhymnal.org/
Here is Love = http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/h/e/herelove.htm
There is Power in the Blood =
If the website is to be believed, neither was written in Wales in 1904.
But since I'd never previously heard of either of them, I wouldn't like to
say for sure. Maybe someone else will be able to comment further. Quite
rousing tunes, if you go for that sort of thing.
