FUN MI NIWA PELE

Fun mi niwa pele, okan tutu;
Ifarabale bi toluwa mi;
Irele o'n suuru atopo iyonu
Ninu ohun gbogbo ki n jo Jesu.

Fun mi nitelorun nipokipo
Ko le rele juyi ta bi Jesu
Fun mi nitunu Re atiranlowo Re
Ninu ohun gbogbo, ki n jo Jesu.

Fun mi ni itara sipa Tire;
Aniyan atife sohun torun
Fun mi niwa mimo, ikorira ese
Ninu ohun gbogbo ki n jo Jesu.

Fun mi ni igbagbo atireti
Fun mi layo'gbala ninu Jesu;
Femi iye fun mi, fun mi lade ogo
'Gbati mo ba jinde ki n jo Jesu.

Give me a gentle heart filled with meekness
diligent heart like thine Jesus, my lord
humbleness and patience
a heart of compassion,
in every small detail
to be like him.

Give me contentment in
all conditions
be it even humbler than
his lowly birth
give me thou thy comfort
give me also thy help
in every small detail to be like him.

Give me enthusiasm
in things of thine
earnestness and more love
for things of heaven
give me a holy heart
give me hatred for sin
in every small detail
to be like him.

Give me a heart of faith
a hope in thee
give joy of salvation
in Jesus Christ I give me a living soul
give a crown of glory
and when I shall awake
to be like him.
Amen!
