JESU NI BALOGUN OKO

Author Unknown
Jesu ni Balogun oko
E mase je ka foya
Olutoko wa ni Jesu Y'o mu oko wa gunle

Refrain:

E ma se beru
E kun fun ayo
Nitori Jesu l'oga oko
Bo ti wu k'iji na le to
Y'o mu oko wa gunle

Eyin ero t'o wa l'oko
E kepe Jesu nikan
K'e si gbeke yin le Jesu
Y'o mu oko wagunle

Olugbala 'wa toro Re
Mu igb'omi pa roro
Iwo t'o rin lori omi
T'o sun, beni ko si nkan

Kil' ohun to nba yin leru
Eyin omo 'gun Kristi
Bi Jesu ba wo ' nu oko
Awa y'o fi 'gbi rerin

'Gbati 'gbi aye yi ba nja
Lor' okun ati n'ile
Abo kan mbe ti o daju
Lodo Olugbala wa

Lowo kiniun at' ekun

Jesu y'o dabobo Tire
Jesu y'o pa Tire mo

Metalokan Alagbara
Dabobo awa omo Re
Lowo a'tegun ati 'ji

Ogo ni fun Baba loke
Ogo ni fun Omo Re
Ogo ni fun Emi Mimo
Metalokan l'ope ye.
Jesus is is the Captain of the ship
Fear not, 'am always with you
Jesus is the Pilot of the ship,
Fear not, I'm always with you.

Refrain:

Fear not my brethren
All rejoice always
Jesus is the Captain of the ship
How great turbulent can the storm be
He'll make our ship land safely.

All ye people inside the ship,
Beckon on Jesus only,
Trust thou only in Jesus Christ,
He'll make our ship land safely.

Jesus Saviour with Thy great words,
Commands the storm to be still,
Jesus Christ who walked on the storm,
He sleeps and there is no foe.

What are your great anxieties,
All you thou Jesus' army
If Jesus Christ is in the ship
We shall all laugh at the storm.

When the storm of life rages high,
Over the land and the sea,
There's a great safe home with Him above,
With my Jesus the Saviour.

From the mouth of lion and the wolf,
From the dangerous animals,
Jesus will save all His children
And keep them all safely home.

God, Three in One and the Saviour,
Preserve us all Thy children
From the storm of life and temptations,
Halleluyah'll be our praises.

Glory to the Father above,
Glory be to His great Son,
Glory be to the Holy Ghost,
Glory forever amen.

  1. Hello AY,
    Your intentions are fine and well taken.

    I did not do any research on the lyrics of the song published above, but I do know that the lyrics of the refrain is incomplete. So I have included the missing line here. You will do well to update it accordingly.

    REFRAIN:
    E ma se beru, E kun fun ayo
    Nitori Jesu l'oga oko
    Bo ti wu k'iji na le to
    Y'o mu oko wa gunle

  7. God bless u sister. I never knew yoruba hymns are now available online till I reluctantly was searching for the English version of "Jesu ni balogun oko". Though I have d yoruba version (hard copy) but was surprised to see it uploaded online. However, I'm much more impressed now coming across the long-sought English version. Pls keep it up
