A Hymn: Ancient Women in Faith

Author:

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

Composer’s Foreword

I do not know how to put my composed words into tonic solfa format, but having learnt however remotely how to compose songs using local Yoruba format, I decide to come with a work around on how to make my songs internationally acceptable, therefore, I have been mimicking some hymns which I believe anyone who knows how to sing such hymn globally would be able to sing along with me my composed song using the tune that I have used beneath.

Having said this, I sincerely invite you to join me in singing this newly composed song, because we celebrate women’s day globally, to show how valuable all women are. Since this event has come to stay all over the world, I have come with this short piece of composition to join our spouses, partners, mothers, daughters in showing how vital they are and that God equally counts them to be important in the scheme of things in the world.

There is a name I love to hear

The Composed Song

1. Now to the aged women in faith

They should be well behaved

Becoming a good example

Even to younger women

Refrain:

Ag’d Holy women trust’d God/3x

‘Cause they were filled with Holy Spirit


2. Now to the aged women in faith

They shouldn’t be false accusers

Not should be addicted to much wine

But be teachers of good things

Refrain


3. The ancient women even need to

Be urging the younger women

Of the need to even be industrious

Working with their own hands

Refrain


4. The ancient women even need to

Counsel younger women that

They need to modestly adorn themselves

As becometh of Godly women

Refrain


5. The ancient women also need to

Tell the younger women that

They should raise their children in way of God

So that they ‘ll give them rest

Refrain
