L’owuro Ojo Ajinde

L’owuro Ojo Ajinde
L’owuro ojo ajinde,
T’ara t’okan y’o pade,
Ekun, ’kanu on irora
Y’o dopin.
Nihin won ko le sai pinya
Ki ara ba le sinmi,
K’o si fi idakeroro
Sun fonfon.
Fun ’gba die ara are yi
L’a gbe s’ibi ’simi re;
Titi di imole oro
Okan to kanu nisisiyi
To si ngbadura kikan,
Y’o bu s’orin ayo l’ojo

Ara at’okan y’o dapo
Ipinya ko ni si mo
Nwon o ji l’aworan Kristi
A! ewa na at’ayo na
Y’o ti po to l’Ajinde!
Y’o duro, b’orun at’aiye
Ba fo lo.
L’oro ojo ajinde wa
’Boji y’o m’ oku re wa;
Baba, iya, omo, ara
Yo pade.
Si’dapo ti odun bayi
Jesu masai ka wa ye
N’nu ku, dajo ka le ro

On the resurrection morning,
On the resurrection morning,
Soul and body meet again,
No more sorrow, no more weeping,
No more pain.
HERE awhile they must be parted,
And the flesh its Sabbath keep,
Waiting in a holy stillness,
Wrapped in sleep.
For a while the wearied body
Lies with feet toward the morn;
Till the last and brightest Easter
Day be born.
But the soul in contemplation,
Utters earnest prayer and strong,
Bursting at the resurrection
Into song.
Soul and body reunited
Thenceforth nothing shall divide,
Waking up in Christ’s own likeness
O the beauty, O the gladness
Of that resurrection day,
Which shall not through endless ages
Pass away!
On that happy Easter morning
All the graves their dead restore,
Father, mother, sister, brother,
Meet once more.
To that brightest of all meetings
Bring us, Jesus Christ, at last,
By Thy cross, through death and judgment,
Holding fast.
