Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days
Sometimes we lose hope of attaining what we have been pursuing in life and our lives become a shadow of itself.
In this position God through his Spirit does minister to us, comforting us and eventually turn our situations around for good.
This is a song of praise to the Lord because about 22 years ago something I never dreamt of happened to me which makes my life to be stagnated for years.
During this process I lost hops, friends, spouse and was alone in the darkness path of life.
While in this worrying position the Holy Ghost would still minister to me that there would be light at the end of my tunnel.
Against hope, I have hope.
I who have been practically begging people before for money to feed myself could at the moment feed my own mouth without asking people for money.
This becomes great to me as I looked back few moments back and I decide to compose this song to praise him for the little he has done trusting he will do more because there is an adage in Yoruba land that says, "when a person appreciates someone for little the person would have more in the future".
Though my hands have not attained but I am sure that it can only get better with God in me, by me.
This song therefore is a song of encouragement to someone out there who may be passing through the phase I had once been in, that such a one shouldn't lose hope because God will soon visit him and turn his or her stories around positively.

Sometimes back droplets of tears 're my drink
Anguish of mind is my daily meal
Everywhere I turned to I'm object of shame
Alleluia God has turned my sorrows to joy
Friends and spousd they all forsake me
When I was passing through the flame of fire
But your word keeps reassuring me
That there is light at end of my tunnel
To me then my case was hopeless
Sometimes I even doubt your words
But whenever I'm about to give up
Divine Spirit, Your Holy Ghost will halt me
When I look around and found no helper
And I am downcast within me
The greatest comforter you have sent to me
The Holy Ghost will comfort my soul
Praise God brethren, praise the Lord with me
'Cause He has rescued my drowning soul
What he did for me superceeds all things
It's great, I cannot describe it
My shame has been turned to glory
He has shine his light to my darkest paths
By his words my life has been transformed
Oh praise God with me the people of God
I 'll continue to praise your Holy name
I 'll speak of your greatness among people of the world
For you are a great God and no respecter of 'nyone
Glory, alleluia and adoration to you
