Bible Reference: Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters,

and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress;

so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that he have mercy upon us. Psalms 123:2 KJV

Kiyesi i, bi oju awọn iranṣẹkunrin ti ima wò ọwọ awọn baba wọn, ati bi oju iranṣẹ-birin ti ima wò ọwọ iya rẹ̀; bẹ̃li oju wa nwò Oluwa Ọlọrun wa, titi yio fi ṣãnu fun wa. –  Orin Dafidi 123:2

Ìgbàgbọ mi wo Ọ

Ìgbàgbọ mi wo Ọ,
Iwo Ọd'aguntan,
Olugbala:
Jọ gbọ adura mi,
M’ ẹsẹ mi gbogbo lọ,
K’ emi lat’ oni lọ
Si jẹ Tirẹ.
Ki ore- ọfẹ Rẹ
F’ilera f’ ọkan mi.
Mu mi tara:
B’ Iwọ ti ku fun mi,
A! k’ ìfẹ mi si Ọ,
K’ o ma gbona titi;
B’ina iye.
‘Gba mo nrin l’ okunkun,
Ninu ọbinuje;
S’ amọna mi.
Sọ’ okun di 'mọlẹ,
Pa ‘banujẹ mi rẹ,
Ki nma ṣako kuro
Li ọdọ Rẹ.
Gbati aiye ba pin,
T’ odo tutu iku
Nṣàn lori mi;
Jesu, ninu ifẹ,
Mu k’ifoiya mi lọ,
Gbe mi d’ oke ọrun,
B’ọkan t’a ra. Amin

My faith looks up to Thee

My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Saviour divine!
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
O may my love to Thee,
Pure warm, and changeless be,
A living fire!
While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream
Over me roll;
Blest Savior, then in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul! Amin.
