Resting in Jesus

Evan Roberts is buried at the rear of the main building together with the rest of his family. You can read more about his grave by clicking on the 'Grave' item above.

1842

The old schoolroom was built in 1842. Prior to this, the church meetings used to take place in a farmhouse kitchen on the opposite side of the road to the present Moriah Chapel.

Love Song

(you will be able to hear it sung in Welsh and English) - 'Here is Love' was known as the love song of the revival. If you have speakers, you will be able to hear it in Welsh on the home page. When you look across the ocean, you can not see where it ends because it never ends, continuously flowing across the globe. Such is the love of God.

The Doors are Open

Our doors are open to visitors just like they were open to the many thousands back in 1904. If you wish to visit us, please fill the online form in below by clicking on the little arrow.

God's Perfect Timing

Did you know that the main chapel building was built in 1898? During construction, no one knew that a great revival was to take place shortly after, apart from God!

Revival Meetings

Scores and scores of people would flock the Revival Meetings to hear Evan Roberts preach and to experience the tangible presence of God. One thing that stands out more in the 1904 Welsh Revival than any other move of God in history was the convicting power of the Spirit, causing people to fall on their knees in the streets and repent whilst no one was around.

In Remembrance

Outside the main building is a memorial dedicated to Evan Roberts. You can see more information on this by clicking on the 'Memorial' item above.

Provided by Grace

Moriah was the name given to the place where Abraham almost sacrificed Isaac. Instead, God provided a ram in Isaac's place. Through grace, Jesus was also provided as a substitute for us so that we might find peace again with God.

Prayer Meetings

On the evening of 31st October 1904, this very room was occupied with 18 young people, all hungry for God. Among them was the well known revivalist, Evan Roberts. Little did they know how much this move of God would affect the world!

Poems & Hymns

Here is Love (Welsh) - Written by William Rees (Gwilym Hiraethog) 1802-83

Dyma gariad fel y moroedd,
Tosturiaethau fel y lli:
Twysog bywyd pur yn marw—
Marw i brynu’n bywyd ni.
Pwy all beidio â chofio amdano?
Pwy all beidio â thraethu’I glod?
Dyma gariad nad â’n angof
Tra fo nefoedd wen yn bod.

Ar Galfaria yr ymrwygodd
Holl ffynhonnau’r dyfnder mawr;
Torrodd holl argaeau’r nefoedd
Oedd yn gyfain hyd yn awr:
Gras â chariad megis dilyw
Yn ymdywallt ymâ ’nghyd,
A chyfiawnder pur â heddwch
Yn cusanu euog fyd.

Here is Love (English) - translated by William Edwards (1848-1929)

Here is love, vast as the ocean,
Lovingkindness as the flood,
When the Prince of Life, our Ransom,
Shed for us His precious blood.
Who His love will not remember?
Who can cease to sing His praise?
He can never be forgotten,
Throughout Heav’n’s eternal days.

On the mount of crucifixion,
Fountains opened deep and wide;
Through the floodgates of God’s mercy
Flowed a vast and gracious tide.
Grace and love, like mighty rivers,
Poured incessant from above,
And Heav’n’s peace and perfect justice
Kissed a guilty world in love.

Let me all Thy love accepting,
Love Thee, ever all my days;
Let me seek Thy kingdom only
And my life be to Thy praise;
Thou alone shalt be my glory,
Nothing in the world I see.
Thou hast cleansed and sanctified me,
Thou Thyself hast set me free.

In Thy truth Thou dost direct me
By Thy Spirit through Thy Word;
And Thy grace my need is meeting,
As I trust in Thee, my Lord.
Of Thy fullness Thou art pouring
Thy great love and power on me,
Without measure, full and boundless,
Drawing out my heart to Thee.

Jesus will do it

'Heaven and earth shall pass away, but MY WORDS shall not pass away.' - Mat. 24 : 35
'If ye shall ask anything in MY NAME, I will do it.' - John 14 : 14

As long as sun doth show that distant hill;
And moon benign protect this darkened path;
And stars forbid to blackness irksome sky;
And man and woman each the other need;
And hunger, weary, seek the bread of life;
And fire reveal the majesty of heat;
And water cleft by sword return and kiss;
And clouds with weeping ease the aching soil;
And Saint believing ask with righteous faith;
So long will Jesus do what you desire.

So long will Jesus answer when you call;
And open every door at which you knock;
And give you rightly what you, needing, ask;
And honour faith which cometh godly way;
And silence terror in the erstwhile mute;
And make the Bible ever rock of hope;
And by His blood prevail for sinner's plea;
And through His light dispel a world of woe;
And with His Rest release each burdened mind;
And in Saint's joy a newer song create;
So long shall all you ask be heard. So long?
His spoken word shall never pass away.

Since this be true, be dead a thousand cares!
Be buried! And let not doubt forget your graves!

Petition, weeping heart, on faithful knee,
For greater bonds than blood shall asking forge:
Love's precious deed shall follow sacred lips.

You, having Him, shall have His gifts as well.
Go, seek a temple; kneel, and tell thy Lord
All you need done. Let Jesus do it all.

Henceforth, all goodness in His Name beseech;
With simple heart profoundly call on Christ;
For whosoever asketh, goeth home
In harvest time, each " whatsoever" done!

Ask on undoubting, daily, need by need;
Believe with fulness of God-armoured faith;
Expecting answers at appointed times;
AND, JESUS THANK WHILE HOPE AWAITS THESE DEEDS.

This is the Bible message, Friend, to YOU;
ASK IN HIS NAME. THAT, JESUS, THEN WILL DO!
