A nsoro ile bukun ni

Writer: Elizabeth K. Mills
A nsoro ile bukun ni
Ile didan atile ewa

N'gba gbogbo la nso togo re
Yo ti dun to lati de 'be!

A nsoro ita wura re
Oso odi re ti ko legbe
Faji re ko se fenu so
Yo ti dun to lati de 'be!


A n so pese ko si nibe
Ko saniyan at'ibanuje
Pelu 'danwo lode ninu
Yo ti dun to lati de 'be

A soro orin iyin re
Ti a ko le forin aye we,
Bo ti wu korin wa dun to
Yo ti dun to lati de 'be!

A n soro isin ife re
Ti agbada tawon mimo nwo
Ijo akobi ti oke
Yo ti dun to lati de 'be!

Jo Oluwa tibi tire
Sa se emi wa ye fun orun
Laipe awa na yio mo
Bo ti dun to lati de 'be

  1. We speak of the realms of the Blest,
  2. Of that country so bright and so fair,
    And oft are its glories confessed;
    But what must it be to be there?

    We speak of its pathways of gold,
    Of its walls decked with jewels most rare,
    Its wonders and pleasures untold;
    But what must it be to be there?

    We speak of its freedom from sin,
    From sorrow, temptation, and care,
    From trials without and within;
    But what must it be to be there?

    We speak of its anthems of praise,
    With which we can compare
    The sweetest on earth we can raise;
    But what must it be to be there?

    We speak of its service of love,
    Of the robes which the glorified wear,
    The church of the First-born above;
    But what must it be to be there?

    Do Thou, Lord, 'midst pleasure of woe,
    Still for Heaven our spirits prepare;
    And shortly we also shall know
    And feel what it is to be there.
