AYO BAYE

Words: Isaac Watts (1674-1748), 1719
Ayo baye: Oluwa de!
Kaye gba Oba re;
Kokan gbogbo pes'aye fun Un,
Ki gbogbo eda korin.

Ayo baye: Jesu joba;
Ki eniyan korin;
Gbati ohun gbogbo laye
Tun n ro iro iro ayo.

Kese at'ikanu ye wa
Kile ye hu egun;
O wa lati da ibukun
Sori egun gbogbo.

O n fotito joba laye,
O si m' oril 'ede
Jeri ogo at'oto Re,
At'iyanu 'fe Re.

Joy to the world! the Lord is come:
let earth receive her King;
let every heart prepare him room,
and heaven and nature sing.

Joy to the world! the Savior reigns;
let us our songs employ,
while fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
nor thorns infest the ground;
he comes to make his blessings flow
far as the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
and makes the nations prove
the glories of his righteousness,
and wonders of his love.
