Otito Re Tobi / Great is Thy faithfulness

Author: Thomas Obadiah Chisholm
Otito Re tobi, Bab' Olorun mi,
Ko si ayidayida lodo Re;
'Wo ko yi pad' anu Re ko kuna ri,
Bi O ti wa, beeni O wa titi.


Otito Re tobi, otito Re tobi.
Laraaro anu tuntun ni mo n ri,
Gbogb' ohun mo fe lowo Re ti pese,
Otito Re tobi pupo si mi

Igba oru, oye, oj' ati 'kore,
Orun, osupa, 'rawo lona won
Dapo m'eda gbogbo ni ijeri si
Otito nla, anu at' ife Re.

'Dariji ese, alafia to daju,
'Walaye Re to n 'tunu to n dari;
Agbara fun oni, ireti f' ola,
Ibukun ainiye si je temi.

  1. Great is Thy faithfulness, o Lord my Father, 
  2. There is no shadow of turning with Thee; 
  3. Thou changeth not, Thy compassionate they fail not, 
  4. As Thou hast been, Thou forever wilt be. 


Great is thy faithfulness/2x
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Thy hand hath provided.
Great is thy faithfulness Lord unto me

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun moon and stars in their courses above 
Join with all nature in manifold witness,
To Thy great faithfulness mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine with ten thousand beside.
