Composer's Foreword

Many youths of this generation, or last generation called Z - Generation often times when discussing with them used to say they used to wonder how the state of the world was when there was neither Internet nor telephone and other advancements we are seeing today. They prayerfully add that they "thank God" (for those who believe in God) and their stars (for those who are free minded) that they were not begotten during those periods because it would be boring without these social media they are seeing now which make the world lively.

Looking at technological innovations through their eyes one cannot but say, the technological changes have really helped some people who would have been repressed, suppressed and oppressed by the elites as it was before.

Many talents would have been buried without being celebrated nor known by those who have links to the crème-de-la-creme in the society, Africa.

Because of this innovations I can as well share my thoughts without fear or favor, share my compositions and believed it would be read all over the world.

I look forward to people joining me in singing this composed song.

The tune I have used has been recorded on YouTube and shared here for the use of all, yea for needful amendments too.

Thanks.

Composed Song

Leader:

The devil in his deceptions/3x has come

To lead my heart astray

Even by his many lies

And I have gone astray from the Lord

Chorus


Leader

Jesus blood is the ransom paid/3x for me

Earlier on I was even

In the cage of the devil

Jesus came and rescued me from the cage

Chorus


Leader:

When I was brokenhearted/3x and despaired

And my mood disordered

Overwhelmed by pain at heart

Yea i have received hope in Christ's word

Chorus


Leader

When am wearied of the world/3x yea frustrated

When suicidal thoughts

Fill all fibres of my being

Christ's Angel appear'd to strengthen me

Chorus


Leader

The pain that fills my heart/3x in sadness

Which made me cry day and night

Also made me lethargic

Thy word has delivered my soul

Chorus


Leader

When I was smitten down/3x by enemies

And lost all that i have

Having no pow'r of my own

Christ Jesus brought me back to my feet

Chorus


Leader

Alleluiah to my God/3x an' Redeemer

God the Father of Christ

Yea the father of all Grace

I 'll forever bless and love you

Chorus
