Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

O God, Our Help in Ages Past

The Composed Song

1. Do not allow anyone to

Lie unto you brethren

Thou should know that ‘vil c’munication

Do corrupt good manners

2. Amnon is even one of the

Male children of David

And he hath a junior sister

Who is also called Tamar

3. And Amnon e’en lusteth after

Tamar his junior sister

The hot love that he hath for her

Even made him fall sick

Scroll to Continue

4. But Amnon also hath a friend

Who also beareth the name

Called Jonadab son of Shimea

Who is David’s brother

5. Even a very subtil man

Is the man called Jonadab

And when he heard that Amnon is ill

He entered to greet him

6. From Amnon he even asketh of

The nature of his sickness

Amnon also explained to him

That he’s in love with Tamar

7. And Jonadab taught him what he

Also could do to even

Use subtility to even lay

With Tamar his siter

8. Amnon put the evil wisdom

That Jonadab taught him to use

He uses force on his sister

Tamar to lay with her

9. The evil communication that he

Amnon has mingled with

Hath corrupted his good manners

Among the king’s household

10. Stay off my brethren stay off to

All evil communication

If thou also want to have Good manners

Stay off evil communication
