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.

O Worship the King, All Glorious Above!

The Composed Song

1. Turn thou unto me, I will turn to thee

If thou do return, even unto me

Then I will restore everything you ‘ve lost

And your land shall yield unto you many folds


2. Turn thou unto me, I will turn to thee

Then I will bring back ‘ven your captivities

Even from the land of the enemies

And thou shalt have ‘ven cause to glorify me


3. Turn thou unto me, I will turn to thee

And I will take off from you heart of stone

Yea I will replace it ‘ven with heart of flesh

That you ‘ll walk in my statutes and you ‘ll keep my laws


4. Turn thou unto me, I will turn to thee

And I ‘ll put in you even my spirit

Then the spirit of worldliness and of flesh

Will no longer have a place ‘ven in your life


5. Turn thou unto me, I will turn to thee

Then I ‘ll make with thee my new covenant

And the old covenant will no longer hold

‘Cause I am making everything new with thee


6. Turn thou unto me, I will turn to thee

Then you ‘ll no longer r’member the ancient things

Neither will they come to your heart again

Because I have even turn everything new


7. Turn thou unto me, I will turn to thee

I ‘ll make a way for thee even in wilderness

I will also make rivers in your desert

Then the world shall see that it’s good to serve the Lord
