Baba Mi Gbo Temi/Holy Father, Hear Me

Words: Edward Henry Bickersteth, 1881

Baba mi gbo temi
'Wo ni Alabo mi,
Ma sunmo mi titi;
Oninure julo!

Jesu Oluwa mi,
Iye at'ogo mi,
K'igba naa yara de,
Ti n o de odo Re.

Olutunu julo,
'Wo ti n gbe inu mi,
'Wo to mo aini mi,
Fa mi, k'o si gba mi.

Mimo, mimo, mimo,
Ma fi mi sile lai,
Se mi n'ibugbe Re,
Tire nikan lailai.

Holy Father, hear me;
thou art my defender,
be thou ever near me,
loving, true and tender.

Jesus, bless├Ęd Savior,
Lord of life and glory,
grant me now thy favour
as I kneel before thee.

Comforter benignest,
who abiding in me
all my need divinest,
move me, draw me, win me.

Holy, holy, holy,
come, and leave me never,
thine abode most lowly,
only thine for ever.
