Author:

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, 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 we celebrate women’s day globally, to show how valuable all women are. Since this event has come to stay all over the world, I have come with this short piece of composition to join our spouses, partners, mothers, daughters in showing how vital they are and that God equally counts them to be important in the scheme of things in the world.

The Composed Song

1. Just like a flower she emerges

Even on the branch of the plant

Making the plant’s beauty to behold

To mammals and insects alike

Refrain:

Goodly women give reason to live/3x

Reawakening the lost hope


2. Her goodly scents ‘ttract insects to her

Bringing about pollination

From which fruits even emerge for all

Humans yea animals alike

Refrain


3. She has become a source of income

Through her beauty and ‘ven her scents

Her owner never lacks anything

‘Cause she is always there

Refrain


4. Good seeds she always bringeth forth

To fill the surface of the earth

Her seeds look at her and bless her

‘Cause she has given life to ‘em

Refrain


5. Joy is well written over her face

Beholding her brings happiness

She likes to give hope to hopeless ones

With her there’s no sadness

Refrain


6. The lost could find a way in her eyes

Her words ‘re full of comforting words

The wisdom of God fill her brain

She is full of understanding

Refrain


7. No one can be compared to her

Beautiful, strong and industrious

Lovely, caring and supportive

A rare jewel in the world

Refrain
