|Pelu iwa mimo, b' Oluwa s' oro
Be 'nu Re n' gbagbogbo je onje iye,
B' onigbagbo s' ore, Ran ailera lowo;
Ma gbagbe nigbakan, wa ibukun Re.
Pelu iwa mimo, Aiye nkoja lo,
Gbadura ni koko, si Jesu nikan
B' iwo ba now Jesu, wo yio dabi Re,
Awon ore yio ri Jesu n'nu 'wa re.
Pelu iwa mimo, je k' On ma to o;
Ohun t' o wu ko de, ma foya rara;
Banuje tab' ayo, tele Jesu re,
Ma wo Olugbala, gbeke l' oro Re.
Pelu iwa mimo, f' okan re bale,
F' On s 'alakoso iwa on ise re;
Emi Re yio to o, s' orisun ife,
Yio si mu o ye, ibugbe orun.
|Take time to be holy, speak oft
with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.
Take time to be holy, the world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret, with Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.
Take time to be holy, let Him be thy Guide;
And run not before Him, whatever betide.
In joy or in sorrow, still follow the Lord,
And, looking to Jesus, still trust in His Word.
Take time to be holy, be calm in thy soul,
Each thought and each motive beneath His control.
Thus led by His Spirit to fountains of love,
Thou soon shalt be fitted for service above.
