SONG OF HEAVEN

Sing To Remember Heaven,

1. Gbo okan mi, bi angeli ti nkorin
Yika orun ati yika aiye
E gbo bi oro orin won ti dun to
Ti nso igbat’se ki y’o si mo.

(Egbe)
Angeli Jesu, angel’ mole
Nwon nkorin ayo pade ero lona

2. B’a si ti nlo, bee l’a si ngo orin won
Wa, arale, Jesu l’o ni k’e wa
L’okunkun ni a ngo orin didun won
Ohun orin won ni nfonahan wa

(Egbe)

3. Ohun Jesu ni a n gbo l’ona rere
Ohun naa ndun b’agogo y’aye ka
Egbegberun awon t’o gbo ni si mbo
Mu won w’odo Re, Olugbala wa

(Egbe)

4. Isimi de, lehin ise on aare
Ojumo mo, lehin okun aye;
Irin ajo pari, f’awon alare
Nwon si ti d’orun ibi isimi:

(Egbe)

5. Ma korin nso eyin angeli rere
E ma korin didun k’a ba ma gbo;
Tit’ao fi nu omije oju wa nu
Ti a’o si ma yo titi lailai.

(Egbe)

 

(ENGLISH VERSION)

1. Hark! hark, my soul! angelic songs are swelling,
O’er earth’s green fields and ocean’s wave-beat shore:
How sweet the truth those blessèd strains are telling
Of that new life when sin shall be no more.

Refrain
Angels of Jesus, angels of light,
Singing to welcome the pilgrims of the night!

2. Darker than night life’s shadows fall around us,
And like benighted men we miss our mark:
God hides Himself, and grace hath scarcely found us,
E’er death finds out his victims in the dark. [Refrain]

3. Far, far away, like bells at evening pealing,
The voice of Jesus sounds o’er land and sea;
And laden souls, by thousands meekly stealing,
Kind Shepherd, turn their weary steps to Thee.

[Refrain]

4. Onward we go, for still we hear them singing,
Come, weary souls, for Jesus bids you come;
And through the dark, its echoes sweetly ringing,
The music of the Gospel leads us home.

[Refrain]

5. Rest comes at length: though life be long and dreary,
The day must dawn, and darksome night be past;
Faith’s journeys end in welcome to the weary,
And Heaven, the heart’s true home, will come at last.

[Refrain]

6. Cheer up, my soul! faith’s moonbeams softly glisten
Upon the breast of life’s most troubled sea,
And it will cheer thy drooping heart to listen
To those brave songs which angels mean for thee.

[Refrain]

7. Angels, sing on, your faithful watches keeping;
Sing us sweet fragments of the songs above,
Till morning’s joy shall end the night of weeping,
And life’s long shadows break in cloudless love.

[Refrain]
