Baba, Mo N'owo Mi Si O

Writer: Charles Wesley
Baba, mo n' owo mi si O;
Nko mo 'ranwo miran:
Bi O ba kuro lodo mi,
A! nibo ni ngo lo?

Ohun t' OmoRe f' ara da
Ki nto la 'ju s' aiye!
Ise t' O se lati gba mi
Lowo 'ku ailopin!

Orisun 'gbagbo, si O ni
Mo gb' oju are mi:
Mba je le ri ebun ni gba
Laisi re mo segbe.

Father, I stretch my hands to Thee,
No other help I know;
If Thou withdraw Thyself from me,
Ah! Whither shall I go?
On Thy dear Son I now believe
O let me feel Thy power
And all my varied wants relieve
In this accepted hour
Author of faith! to Thee I lift
My weary longing eyes
O let me now receive this gift
My soul without it dies
Surely Thou canst not let me die;
O speak, and I shall live;
And here I will unwearied lie,
Till Thou Thy Spirit give.
How would my fainting soul rejoice
Could I but see Thy face
Now let me hear Thy quickening voice
And taste Thy pardoning grace
I do believe, I now believe
That Jesus died for me.
And that He shed His precious blood
From sin to set me free
