Composer’s Foreword

It is a known fact we are given birth to one day and we shall die one day.

However as Christians we know that the world is the habitation of wickedness, (Psa. 74:20). Therefore, believers need to always look upward to Jehovah for assistance and to be uphold by them to sail through the world peacefully.

It is for this purpose that this has been composed. However, 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.

But I am not mimicking any hymn in this composition, I have recorded the Tune received on Video, posted to YouTube, and would share here, trusting that some good musicians would modify the tune and perhaps the wordings of the song for the benefit of Humanity and the proclamation of the gospel.

Having said this, I sincerely invite you to join me in singing this newly composed song, because I know music yea songs is one of the things that makes heart merry lifting hearts out of the cauldron of darkness that the enemies may have subjected people to and draws heart closer to God and his blessings.

Praying, hoping and trusting that you will be blessed with the song as you sing along with me and if you do not know the tune, I sincerely trust that God will bless your hearts, homes and all that is yours as you read the wordings of the newly composed song.

“It is being recorded and the link from the YouTube is shared here for easy grasps and needful modifications.”

A Song: Uphold Me Precious Lord

The Composed Song

Leader/Solo

It’s the person that you uphold

That enemies will not overcome

It’s the person that you uphold

That lives a triumphant life on the earth

I beseech thee precious Lord

Have mercies on me thy servant

Uphold me with your right hand

Let me not be prey to enemies

(Instrumentalists)

Chorus


Leader/Solo

The world is full of evil

Yea is a sea full of wickedness

Without your help dear Lord

No one can swim even to the shore

I’m in your hands precious Lord

See me through the sea of the world

Help me Lord ‘cause I’m yours

Let not the evil ones ‘vercome me

(Instrumentalists)

Chorus


Leader/Solo

All men look wonderful

But all men’s hearts only you can see

Flesh has covered all souls

But intents of men ‘re not hidden from you

Save me oh my blessed Lord

From the wolves that appeared as the sheep

It’s only you that know them

Oh my Lord save me from wicked ones

(Instrumentalists)

Chorus


Leader/Solo

It’s the ones you uphold

That the people of the world can see

It’s the ones you uphold

That lives a successful life on earth

Uphold me my precious Lord

I ‘ve handed all my life unto you

Uphold me my precious Lord

Let me triumph over my enemies

(Instrumentalists)

Chorus


Leader/Solo

Meet with my daily needs

So that I ‘ll not beg for bread in the world

Bestow thy peace on me

So that I ‘ll live a contented life

Remove very far from me

Vanities and lies in the world

Supply every of my needs

So that I ‘ll always praise your name

(Instrumentalists)

Chorus
