Oluwa, emi sa ti gb’ohun Re

Oluwa, emi sa ti gb’ohun Re

1. Oluwa emi sa ti gb’ohun Re
O nso ife Re simi
Sugbon mo fe nde l’apa igbagbo
Ki nle tubo sun mo o

Fa mi mora, mora, Oluwa
Sib’agbelebu t’O ku
Fa mi mora, mora, mora Oluwa
Si b’eje Re t’o n’iye

2. Ya mi si mimo fun ise Tire
Nipa ore-ofe Re
Je ki nfi okan igbagbo w’oke
K’ife mi si je Tire

3. A ! ayo mimo ti wakati kan
Ti mo lo nib’ite Re
‘gba mo ngb’adura si O Olorun
Ti a soro bi ore.

4. Ijinle ife mbe ti nko le mo
Titi un o koja odo
Ayo giga ti emi ko le so
Tit un o fi de ‘simi. Amin.





I am Thine, O Lord,
I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
And be closer drawn to Thee.

Draw me near-er,
Near-er, blessed Lord,
To the cross, where thou hast died,

Draw me near-er,
Near-er, blessed Lord,
To thy precious, bleeding side.

Consecrate me now to thy service Lord,
By the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up
With a stead-fast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.

O the pure delight of a single hour,
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer,
And with Thee my God,
I commune as friend with friend.

There are depths of love,
That I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea,
There are heights of joy,
That I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.

  1. O WEARY HEART, THERE IS A HOME
    1. O Weary Heart, There Is A Home
    Beyond The Reach Of Toil And Care:
    A Home Where Changes Never Come;
    Who Would Not Fain Be Resting There?

    Chorus: Oh Wait, Meekly Wait, And Murmur Not!
    Oh Wait, Meekly Wait, And Murmur Not!
    Oh Wait, Oh Wait, Oh Wait, And Murmur Not!

    2. Yet When Bowed Down
    Beneath The Load
    By Heaven Allowed, Thine Earthly Lot;
    Look Up! Thou’ll Reach That Blest Abode;
    Wait, Meekly Wait, And Murmur Not!

    3. If In Thy Path Some Thorns Are Found,
    Oh, Think Who Bore Them On His Brow;
    If Grief Thy Sorrowing Heart Has Found,
    It Reached A Holier Than Thou.

    4. Toil On! Nor Deem, Though Sore It Be,
    One Sigh Unheard, One Prayer Forgot;
    The Day Of Rest Will Dawn For Thee;
    Wait, Meekly Wait, And Murmur Not!
    Amen!

    Yoruba Version
    OKAN ARE, ILE KAN MBE

    1. Okan are, ile kan mbe,
    L’ona jinjin s’aiye ise ;
    Ile t’ ayida ko le de,
    Tani ko fe simi nibe?

    Chorus: Duro, roju duro, mase kun!
    Duro, roju duro, mase kun!
    Duro…duro, sa roju, mase kun!

    2. Bi wahala bo o mole,
    B’ ipin re laiye ba buru,
    W’ oke s’ ile ibukun na;
    Sa roju duro, mase kun!

    3. Bi egun ba wa lona re,
    Ranti ori t’a f’ egun de;
    B’ ibanuje bo okan re,
    O ti ri bee f’ Olugbala.

    4. Ma sise lo, mase ro pe,
    A ko gb’ adura edun re;
    Ojo isimi mbo kankan:
    Sa roju duro, mase kun!
    Amen!
