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.

But I am not mimicking any hymn in this composition, I have recorded the Tune received on Video, posted to YouTube, and would share here, trusting that some good musicians would modify the tune and perhaps the wordings of the song for the benefit of Humanity and the proclamation of the gospel.

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.

It is being recorded and the link from the YouTube is shared here for easy grasps and needful modifications.”

The Composed Song

That I ‘ll live to declare your glory, an’ make known your works ‘mong men

According even unto thy word, by thy power uphold me

Let not enemies triumph over me, put my enemies to shame

Yet I have put my trust in thee, thy word is my companion

According even unto thy word, by thy power uphold me

‘Cause I ‘ve been called after your name, people know I belong to you
