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


Composer's Foreword

Some of us think it is a right to wake up after we have slept, but it is not a right it is a privilege granted those of us who are alive today by God to show forth his beauty, power and majesty.

Thinking abouy how God has been helping me to lay and wake again, I decide to give him praises as the Psalmist did by composing this short song.

Thank you

Composed Song

1) Oh my Father and Lord

You've not left me alone

For you 've preserved me

I have not sleep, sleep of death.


2) During the night you preserve me

Your angels surround me

Taking me in their arms

Protectinh me from all assault


3) Arrows enemies aimed at me.

When I was deeply asleep

They do not hut me

'Cause you have shielded me


4) Enterprises of the devil

On me have not succeed

Oh glory Lord

I 'll keep glorifying you


5) I am alive today my Lord

'Cause you are my refuge Lord

Glory be unto your name

Dear Lord Preserver of life


6) Another chance you 've given me

To show forth your glory on earth

My Father I thank you

For sparing my life Lord

I love the idea that angels are around us as we sleep, Olusegun. This is another lovely praise song.
