A Hymn: Rejoice Not Against Me, O Mine Enemy: When I Fall, I Shall Arise

Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days


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.

O come, O come, Emmanuel - (Piano/Cello) - The Piano Guys

The Composed Song

1. When am walking along in darkness

Yea e’en the shadow of death

When it seemeth as if the light

Will no longer shine for me


‘Joice not ‘gainst me mine enemies

When I fall I shall also rise

When I sit even in darkness

The Lord shall be light unto me

2. When I was in the wilderness

That there’s no food I can eat

And there’s no water I can drink

That am weary of life


3. When the red sea even lieth afore

And Pharoah’s chariots come behind

Mount at right-hand, valley at left hand

With no escape route for me


4. When I have e’en lost everything

That I ‘ve ever worked for in life

And my parents, wife, or husband

Have even forsaken me


5. When I have lost all my children

And my wife or my husband dies

That I do not have hope again

Nor do have I e’en a helper


6. Though I even fall seven times

Yet will I ‘lso rise again,

‘Cause the Lord hath even hold me

And He ‘ll not even leave me


7. My enemy don’t ‘joice ‘gainst me

Even when am in distress

‘Cause the Lord knows ‘bout ‘verything

That I am passing through
