Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


Composer's Foreword

All humans on earth desire success therefore we try so many means to become a success. However despite our trying sometimes we discover that the most desired for success eludes us and we become weak, tired of everything and would not want to put in our best again.

In some extreme instances some will attempt suicide and we have heard of those who have died.

If you have tried all yet without progress, for you this wordings of the song is for prayerfully telling him through the words here that your desire his, God's assistance in all ramifications to be able to achieve those things you have dreamt of in life.

Reading the words of the composed song will bless you as well as knowing the tune the composer has used.

Therefore, I have prerecorded the tune on YouTube to learn and know.


Composed Song


Carry me oh Lord to the rock

Higher than I

For you 're the only one

That I alway' set my hopes on


It's only you oh Lord

Who can make me accomplish

Great things on the earth

Therefore I pin my hopes on you

Scroll to Continue



I 've labored very hard

To achieve greatness on earth

Yet all my efforts

Could not bring unto me greatness



My parents tried so hard

Carrying me to rock higher than I

Yet oh Darling Lord

This feat they could not achieve



My siblings and my friends

Have given me all the supports

Still oh Yahweh Lord

All my desires eluded me



I cried unto thee Lord

For I know it's only you

Who can make me achieve

Thag which I want yea on earth



I run to thee oh Lord

With my hands widely spread

Carry me oh dear Lord

To the rock higher than I
