Composer's Foreword

Searching through my old files couple of minutes back, I discovered this song which I composed in 1996 for the Youths of the church I was attending which I was the President of the youths.

On looking at the song composed, I was moved and I decided to edit it, add some other stanzas to it and publish it here because I know publishing it here makes it safer, and relevant as long as the world would be in existence...

The tune used for the composition is a common tune, however I have prerecorded it and share the link here also.

Thank you.

I will sing unto thee oh Lord

'Cause you triumphed gloriously

The horse and even its riders

Have you thrown into the sea

Chorus

The Lord is my strength and my song

He's become my salvation

He's my God I will prepare

Sure habitation for him

Chorus

The right hand oh Lord my God

Is become glorious in power

Even your right hand oh Lord

Dashed in pieces the enemies

Chorus


Leader

You 've overthrown those who rise 'gainst you

In the greatness of your Excellency

Like a stubble you 've consumed them all

Alleluia to your Holy Name

Chorus

Different musical 'nstruments will I use

To worship and bless your name

Yea I will bless you with my dance

Oh thou the everlasting Lord

Chorus

You have written more sweet words, Olusegun. I am glad to know you worked with the youth as I think teaching young people is a wonderful calling.
