Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer (Bread of Heaven)

Traditional Christian hymn set to the Welsh tune of Cwm Rhondda, sometimes known as Bread of Heaven. A popular hymn for many different occasions.

Guide Me O Thou Great Redeemer (Bread of Heaven)

Guide me, O thou great redeemer,
Pilgrim through this barren land;
I am weak, but thou art mighty,
Hold me with thy powerful hand;
Bread of heaven, bread of heaven
Feed me till I want no more;
Feed me till I want no more. 

Open now the crystal fountain
Whence the healing stream doth flow;
Let the fire and cloudy pillar
Lead me all my journey through:
Strong deliverer, strong deliverer;
Be thou still my strength and shield;
Be thou still my strength and shield.

 

When I tread the verge of Jordan,
Bid my anxious fears subside;
Death of death, and hell's destruction
Land me safe on Canaan's side:
Songs of praises, songs of praises,
I will ever give to thee;
I will ever give to thee. 

English Translation by Peter Williams
