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 I know music yea songs is one of the things that makes heart merry lifting hearts out of the cauldron of darkness that the enemies may have subjected people to and draws heart closer to God and his blessings.

Praying, hoping and trusting that you will be blessed with the song as you sing along with me and if you do not know the tune, I sincerely trust that God will bless your hearts, homes and all that is yours as you read the wordings of the newly composed song.

The Composed Song

1. Be thou not deceived brethren

Know ye this one very thing

That the evil communications

Even corrupt good manners

2. Companion of who you are

Will surely reveal the camp

To which you really belong

Whether of righteousness or wickedness

3. If you belong to the camp

Of people who drink too much

You 'll live a miserable life

Scroll to Continue

And you 'll be sorry for yourself

4. Those who give their very lives

Even to much of drinking

Are always causing trouble

Complaining an' never satisfied

5. Those who belong to the group

Of adulterer and adulteress

The abusers of mankind

They are not contented on earth

6. The evil companionship

Plunges one into deeper sins

Pushes one away from God

Making one 'enemy of God

7. Come ye out from among them

And be ye separated

Even unto the Lord God

Touch not unclean things 'gain

8. Then the Lord will receive you

Wash you clean 'ven with his blood

And clothe thee with his righteousness

For He's kind and merciful
