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,

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
1. 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
2. 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
3. Silently, there I grew ashamed
Before my Holy Saviour, Lord
Who shed His life blood for my sake
His love to me, beyond compare
