Mo Mo Pe Oludande Mi N Be

Author: Jessie Brown Pounds

Mo mo pe Oludande mi n be
Y'o tun duro ni aye yi
Mo mo pe O fun mi ni iye
Ore-ofe n be l'owo Re

Refrain:
Mo mo pe Jesu n be ni aaye
Y'o tun duro ni aye yi
Mo mo pe O fun mi ni iye
Ore-ofe n be l'owo Re

Mo mo pe' leri Re ko le ye
Oro Re ye titi lailai
B'iku tile pa ara mi run
Emi yo ri lojukoju

Mo mo pe O n pese aye de mi
'Biti O wa l'emi y'o wa
O n pa mi mo titi d'igbana
O n pada bo lati mu mi

I know that my Redeemer liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know eternal life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.

Chorus:
I know, I know that Jesus liveth,
And on the earth again shall stand;
I know, I know that life He giveth,
That grace and power are in His hand.

I know His promise never faileth,
The word He speaks, it cannot die;
Tho' cruel death my flesh assaileth,
Yet I shall see Him by and by<

I know my mansion He prepareth,
That where He is there I may be;
Oh, wondrous thought, for me He careth,
And He at last will come for me.

THE AUTHOR

Jessie Brown Pounds was born in Hiram, Ohio, a suburb of Cleveland on 31 August 1861. She was not in good health when she was a child so she was taught at home. She began to write verses for the Cleveland newspapers and religious weeklies when she was fifteen. After an editor of a collection of her verses noted that some of them would be well suited for church or Sunday School hymns, J. H. Fillmore wrote to her asking her to write some hymns for a book he was publishing. She then regularly wrote hymns for Fillmore Brothers. She worked as an editor with Standard Publishing Company in Cincinnati from 1885 to 1896, when she married Rev. John E. Pounds, who at that time was a pastor of the Central Christian Church in Indianapolis.
