KO SORE BI JESU ONIRELE

 Johnson Oatman Jr. (1856-1926

Ko s'ore bi Jesu onirele
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!
Ko s'elomi to le w'okan wa san
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!

Jesu mo gbogbo idaamu wa
Yo toju wa d'opin ojo
Ko s'ore bi Jesu onirele
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!

Ko s'ore bi Re to ga ni Mimo
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!
Ko s'ore to tutu to n'irele
Ko s'okan! Ko sokan!

Ko s'akoko ti Oun ko sun mo wa
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!
Ko  s'oru tife Re ko tu won n'nu
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!

Eni kan ha ti r'ore yi nko ni?
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!
Tabe'elese ri ko ni gba oun la?
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!

Ebun kan ha wa bi Jesu fun wa?
Ko s'okan! Ko s'okan!
Yo ha ko fun wa ka nile l'orun?
Ko je ko! Ko je ko!
There's not a Friend like the lowly Jesus:
No, not one! no, not one!
None else could heal all our souls' diseases:
No, not one! no, not one!

Jesus knows all about our struggles;
He will guide 'til the day is done:
There's not a Friend like the lowly Jesus:
No, not one! no, not one!

No friend like Him is so high and holy,
No, not one! no, not one!
And yet no friend is so meek and lowly,
No, not one! no, not one!

There's not an hour that He is not near us,
No, not one! no, not one!
No night so dark, but His love can cheer us,
No, not one! no, not one!

Did ever saint find this Friend forsake him?
No, not one! no, not one!
Or sinner find that He would not take him?
No, not one! no, not one!

Was e'er a gift like the Savior given?
No, not one! no, not one!
Will He refuse us the bliss of heaven?
No, not one! no, not one!
