Composer’s Foreword

I am not good in notes, but from the local church trainings while in choir, I have come around with this hymn using another hymn. If you know the hymn beneath, then you can join me to sing this song unto the Lord.

Note

The common hymn on YouTube of "How sweet the name of Jesus sounds" is different from the one I used for this composition, and I have gotten the Yoruba link here, it is being interpreted, with some side additions by the singer which are not in the original hymn, this essentially, I believe is added to add melody to the music/hymn. Thus, I would say, enjoy the melody.

B'oruko Jesu ti dun to (How sweet the name of Jesus sounds)
