BO TI DUN LATI GBA JESU

Louisa M. R. Stead, c. 1850-1917
Bo ti dun lati gba Jesu
Gbo gege bi oro Re
Ka simi lor'ileri Re
Sa gbagbo l'Oluwa wi

Jesu, Jesu, emi gbagbo
Mo gbekele ngbagbogbo
Jesu, Jesu, Alabukun
Ki nle gbekele O si
Bo ti dun lati gba Jesu
Ka gbeje wenumo Re
Igbagbo ni ki a fi bo
Sin'eje 'wenumo na

Bo ti dun lati gba Jesu
Ki nk'ara ese sile
Ki ngb'ayo, iye, isimi
Lati odo Jesu mi

Mo yo mo gb'eke mi le O
Jesu mi, Alabukun
Mo mo pe o wa pelu mi
'N'toju mi titi d'opin.
’Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to take Him at His Word;
Just to rest upon His promise,
And to know, “Thus saith the Lord!”

Jesus, Jesus, how I trust Him!
How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er;
Jesus, Jesus, precious Jesus!
Oh, for grace to trust Him more!

Oh, how sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just to trust His cleansing blood;
And in simple faith to plunge me
’Neath the healing, cleansing flood!

Yes, ’tis sweet to trust in Jesus,
Just from sin and self to cease;
Just from Jesus simply taking
Life and rest, and joy and peace.

I’m so glad I learned to trust Thee,
Precious Jesus, Savior, Friend;
And I know that Thou art with me,
Wilt be with me to the end.

  2. Thank you for being such a great blessing. The Lord just woke me up for sweet fellowship - Quite Time. And I woke up with the lyrics of this song strong in my spirit. As I search for it, thank God I found it on you blog. God bless you richly in Jesus name.
