Jesu Fe K'emi Je 'mole

Nellie Talbot

Jesu fe k'emi je 'mole
Ki n tan lojoojumo
Nibi gbogbo ki n le wun Oun,
Nile, ni skul, lode.

Imole, imole,
Jesu fe kemi je 'mole
Imole, imole,
Lemi yo je fun Jesu.

Jesu fe ki emi feran,
Gbogb'ohun ti mo ri,
Ki n fi itara atayo,
Tomode Re le je.

Mo le semole fun Jesu,
Bi mo ba gbiyanju;
Ki n si sin Oun nigba gbogbo,
Ki n ba Oun gbe orun.

Jesus wants me for a sunbeam,
To shine for Him each day;
In every way try to please Him,
At home, at school, at play.

A sunbeam, a sunbeam,
Jesus wants me for a sunbeam;
A sunbeam, a sunbeam, I’ll be a sunbeam for Him.

Jesus wants me to be loving,
And kind to all I see;
Showing how pleasant and happy
His little one can be.

I will ask Jesus to help me
To keep my heart from sin,
Ever reflecting His goodness,
And always shine for Him.

I’ll be a sunbeam for Jesus;
I can if I but try;
Serving Him moment by moment,
Then live with Him on high.

Racking her brain for material for her Sunday school class in rural Missouri, she thought to herself, "How can you say there’s nothing to teach about when you have the sun and the sky and the trees and the flowers!" Hence the theme of this song. [Link]
