Fun Wa N'le Onigbagbo

Author: B.B McKinney
Fun wa n’le onigbagbo
Ile ti a nkeko Bibeli
Ile ti a nlepa ‘fe Baba
Ta f’ewa ife re de lade
Fun wa n’le Onigbagbo /2ce

Fun wa n’le Onigbagbo
Nibi ti Baba j’olotito
Ile t’o t’akete si ibi
Ile t’o kun f’ayo ‘fe at’orin
Fun wa n’le onigbagbo /2ce

Fun wa n’le Onigbagbo
‘le t’iya nsise b’oba obinrin
Fihan p’ona re lo dara ju
Ile ti ngba Jesu l’alejo
Fun wa n’le Onigbagbo /2ce

Fun wa n’le onigbagbo
Ni’bi ti an nto awon omode
L’ati mo Kristi t’o feran won
Ile t’ina adura tin jo
Fun wa n’le onigbagbo /2ce

*From Hymn Book for All Churches in Africa: Yoruba & English with Halleluyah Chorus Aroyehun Edition.
God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the Bible is loved and taught,
Homes where the master’s will is sought,
Homes crowned with beauty thy love hath wrought;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the father is true and strong,
Homes that are free from the blight of wrong,
Homes that are joyous with love and song;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the mother, in queenly quest
Strive to show others thy way is best
Homes where the lord is an honoured guest;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!

God, give us Christian homes!
Homes where the children are led to know
Christ in His beauty who loves them so,
Homes where the altar fires burn and glow;
God, give us Christian homes;
God, give us Christian homes!
