Composer's Foreword

It has been stated that the only constant thing in the world is change.

The people living in Yoruba land have been composing and singing without notes before but the wave of changes swept across the land as musicians started introducing tonic solfa into the songs they were singing.

But having not known tonic solfa, and have discovered that I have the talent of composing songs, I have divided to have a work around the conundrum to make my songs internationally acceptable.

Based on the above ipsofacto, if anyone knows the songs I have mimic in composing this song either remotely or otherwise such a one can join me in singing the song.

This would make the person to gravitate from the level of reading the wordings of the songs to humming and singing the song.

The Composed Song

1. Jesus when he was led to wilderness

He said that there is only one God

There he was tempted even by the devil

He said that there is only one God

Chorus

There is only One God, there is only one God

Apart from him there is no other God

There is only one God, there is only one God

Apart from him there is no other God


2. After he fasted for forty days an' night

He said that there is only one God

He was hungry and then the tempter came

He said that there is only one God

Chorus


3. The tempter said if thou be son of God

He said that there is only one God

Command these stones that they be turned to bread

He said that there is only one God

Chorus


4. Jesus replied man 'll not live by bread alone

He said that there is only one God

But by every word that comes from God's mouth

He said that there is only one God

Chorus


5. Tempter again said cast even thyself down

He said that there is only one God

For He 'll command the angels to protect thee

He said that there is only one God

Chorus


6. Jesus again while replying even the tempter

He said that there is only one God

Thou shall not tempt even the Lord thy God

He said that there is only one God

Chorus


7. On the highest mountain devil showed him

He said that there is only one God

The kingdoms of theworld and their glories

He said that there is only one God

8. Devil says to possess all I have shown you

He said that there is only one God

Fall down and worship me an' they 'll be yours

He said that there is only one God

Chorus


9. Jesus rebuked him to get behind him

He said that there is only one God

'Cause only the Lord thy God must you worship

He said that there is only one God

10.There is only one body and one Spirit

He said that there is only one God

One Lord, one faith, yea and one baptism

He said that there is only one God

Chorus


11. Thou should keep the unity of the faith

He said that there is only one God

Let brotherly love be with dissimulation

He said that there is only one God

Chorus
