Yoruba Hymn: Agbelebu ni ere mi – The rugged cross is all my gain
Agbelebu ni ere mi – The rugged cross is all my gain
Colossians 1:20 NKJV – and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.
Kolose 1:20 – Ati nipasẹ rẹ̀ lati bá ohun gbogbo lajà, lẹhin ti o ti fi ẹjẹ agbelebu rẹ̀ pari ija; mo ni, nipasẹ rẹ̀, nwọn iba ṣe ohun ti mbẹ li aiye, tabi ohun ti mbẹ li ọrun.
Agbelebu ni ere mi
Agbelebu ni ere mi,
Nibe ni a rubo fun mi;
Nibe l’ a kan Oluwa mo,
Nibe l’ Olugbala mi ku.
Kini o le fa okan Re
Lati teri gba iya mi?
Aimohun na daju l’ o se
T’ okan mi tutu be si O.
- Aifohun na oju ti mi
Niwaju Jesu mimo mi,
T’ o taje Re sile fun mi,
Tori o fe mi l’ afeju. Amin
The rugged cross is all my gain
- The rugged cross is all my gain
There the great sacrifice was made
There the Saviour was crucified
And there He bled and died for me
- What could have moved His heart to bear
And to suffer for all my sins?
Not knowing why, is the reason
My heart is so cold towards Thee
- Silently, there I grew ashamed
Before my Holy Saviour, Lord
Who shed His life blood for my sake
His love to me, beyond compare
