Halleluyah, Halleluyah

Writer: Christopher Wordsworth (1807-1885), 1862
Halleluyah, Halleluyah,
E gbe ohun ayo ga,
E korin inudidun,
K' e si yin olorun wa,
Enit'a kan m'agbelebu,
T' o jiya fun ese wa;
Jesu Kristi Oba ogo
Jinde kuro n'nu oku.

Irin idabu se kuro
Kristi ku, O sit un ye,
O mu iye at aiku
Wa l'oro ajinde Re;
Krist' ti' segun, awa segun
Nipa agbara nla Re,
Awa o jinde pelu Re,
A o ba wo 'nu ogo.

Kristi jinde, akobi ni
Ninu awon t' o ti sun,
Awon yi ni y' o ji dide,
Ni abo Re ekeji;
Ikore ti won ti pon tan
Nwon  nreti  Olukore,
Eniti y'o mu won kuro,
Ninu isa oku won.

Awa jinde pelu Kristi
T'O nfun wa l' ohun gbogbo
Ojo, iri, ati ogo
To ntan jade l' oju Re;
Oluwa b' a ti wa l'aiye,
Fa okan wa s'odo Re,
K'awon maleka saw a jo,
Ki  nwon  ko wa d,odo Re.

Halleluyah, Halleluyah!

Halleluyah f' Emi Mimo,
Orison 'fe, 'wa mimo,
Halleluyah, Halleluyah,
F' Olorun Metalokan.

Alleluia, alleluia!
Hearts to heaven and voices raise:
sing to God a hymn of gladness,
sing to God a hymn of praise.
He, who on the cross a victim,
for the world's salvation bled,
Jesus Christ, the King of glory,
now is risen from the dead.

Now the iron bars are broken,
Christ from death to life is born,
glorious life, and life immortal,
on this holy Easter morn.
Christ has triumphed, and we conquer
by his mighty enterprise:
we with him to life eternal
by his resurrection rise.

Christ is risen, Christ, the first fruits
of the holy harvest field,
which will all its full abundance
at his second coming yield:
then the golden ears of harvest
will their heads before him wave,
ripened by his glorious sunshine
from the furrows of the grave.

Christ is risen, we are risen!
Shed upon us heavenly grace,
rain and dew and gleams of glory
from the brightness of thy face;
that we, with our hearts in heaven,
here on earth may fruitful be,
and by angel hands be gathered,
and be ever, Lord, with thee.

Alleluia, alleluia!
Glory be to God on high;
Alleluia! to the Savior
who has gained the victory;
Alleluia! to the Spirit,
fount of love and sanctity:
Alleluia, alleluia!
to the Triune Majesty.
