Fun Aanu To Po B'iyanrin

Writer: John Newton
Fun aanu t' o po b' iyanrin,
Ti mo ngba lojojo
Lat' odo Jesu Oluwa,
Kili emi le tun?

Kili ohun ti mo le fun un
Lat' inu okan mi?
Ese ti ba gbogbo re je,
Ofo li o si je.

Eyi l' ohun t' emi o se,
F' ohun t' O se fun mi;
Em' o mu ago igbala,
Ngo kepe Olorun.

Eyi l'ope ti mo le da,
Emi osi, are;
Ngo f' ebun Re se iyanju
Lati ma bere si.

Emi ko le sin b' o ti to,
Nko n' ise kan t' o pe;
Sibe ngo du ki nsogo pe
Gbese mi l' o po ju.

For mercies, countless as the sands,
Which daily I receive
From Jesus, my Redeemer's hands,
My soul what canst thou give?

Alas! from such a heart as mine,
What can I bring him forth?
My best is stained and dyed with sin,
My all is nothing worth.

Yet this acknowledgment I'll make
For all he has bestowed;
Salvation's sacred cup I'll take
And call upon my God.

The best returns for one like me,
So wretched and so poor;
Is from his gifts to draw a plea,
And ask him still for more.

I cannot serve him as I ought,
No works have I to boast;
Yet would I glory in the thought
That I shall owe him most.
