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 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.

"Stand Up and Bless the Lord" Hymn

The Composed Song

1. Good news will make your heart

Gladdened and leap for joy

Just like the light of the eyes will

Give you a joyous heart


2. Good news is even like

A very cold water

Unto the soul that is thirsty

Nourishing, quenching his thirst


3. Good news is news of peace

The news of victory

That is announced to people of God

That their God is the King


4. The news of salvation

The news of deliverance

The news to heal the brokenhearted

Is good news to the poor


5. The good news is this that

Jesus Christ the Son of God

Even was manifested on earth

To take away our sins


6. The good news is this that

Jesus Christ the Son of God

Even was manifested on earth

To destroy the devil’s works


7. The good news is this that

Jesus Christ is the love of God

Who has been sent into the world

That we might ‘ven live through him


8. Jesus is the good news

Which when heard makes heart glad

For he is the expressed image

Of Yahweh the invisible God
