Jesu, O Ha Rera Re Le

Words: Charles Wesley

JESU, O ha re 'ra Re le
Gbat' O gb' ara wa wo?
Lati se awotan aisan,
Lati l' arun jade?

O ha te 'ti si alagbe,
O m' afoju riran?
Gbo, Omo dafidi, a! gbo,
Sanu fun mi pelu.

O ha kanu fun 'se eda,
O tun mu 'lera wa?
Oluwa jo gb' okan mi la,
T' o nfe anu Re ju.

O ha y' Omo-do t' o mberu
Gbat' o nri n'nu igbi?
Oluwa gb' okan mi, mo gbe;
Iwo l'o le gbala.
Gentle Jesus, meek and mild,
Look upon a little child;
Pity my simplicity,
Suffer me to come to Thee.

Fain I would to Thee be brought,
Dearest God, forbid it not;
Give me, dearest God, a place
In the kingdom of Thy grace

Lamb of God, I look to Thee;
Thou shalt my Example be;
Thou art gentle, meek, and mild;
Thou wast once a little child.

Fain I would be as Thou art;
Give me Thine obedient heart;
Thou art pitiful and kind,
Let me have Thy loving mind.

Let me, above all, fulfill
God my heav’nly Father’s will;
Never His good Spirit grieve;
Only to His glory live.

Thou didst live to God alone;
Thou didst never seek Thin own;
Thou Thyself didst never please:
God was all Thy happiness.
Loving Jesus, gentle Lamb,
In Thy gracious hands I am;
Make me, Savior, what Thou art,
Live Thyself within my heart.

I shall then show forth Thy praise,
Serve Thee all my happy days;
Then the world shall always see
Christ, the holy Child, in me.
