Ija D'opin, Ogun Si Tan

Author Unknown
Translated from Latin to English by Francis Pott
Alleluya! Alleluya!! Alleluya!!!
Ija d' opin, ogun si tan:
Olugbala jagun molu:
Orin ayo l' a o ma ko.

Gbogbo ipa n' iku si lo:
Sugbon Kristi f' ogun re ka:
Aiye E ho iho ayo - Alleluya!

Ojo meta na ti koja.
O jinde kuro nin' oku:
E f' ogo fun Olorun wa. -Alleluya!

O d' ewon orun apadi,
O s' ilekun orun sile:
E korin iyin 'segun Re. - Alleluya!

Jesu nipa iya t' O je,
A bo lowo iku titi:
Titi l' a o si ma yin O. - Alleluya!

Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
The strife is o'er, the battle done,
the victory of life is won;
the song of triumph has begun.

The powers of death have done their worst,
but Christ their legions hath dispersed:
let shout of holy joy outburst.

The three sad days are quickly sped,
he rises glorious from the dead:
all glory to our risen Head!

 He closed the yawning gates of hell,
the bars from heaven's high portals fell;
let hymns of praise his triumphs tell!

Lord! by the stripes which wounded thee,
from death's dread sting thy servants free,
that we may live and sing to thee.
