A Hymn: Sin Blindfolds


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.


The Composed Song

1. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

Oh thou my friend

Jesus calls you today

Walk no more in way of sin

2. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

It r’probates the mind

It hinders one ‘ven from

Seeing heav’nly vision

3. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

It even puts man

Even in the darkness

Yea uttermost darkness

4. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

It even makes man

To do what is not right

Even in the world

5. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

It also puts one

In a great bitterness

And a great sorrow

6. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

Also brings d’struction

‘To ‘ven the lives of those

Who yield their lives to it

7. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

It brings also travails

Into the lives of those

Yield their lives ‘to it

8. The sin ‘lso blindfolds

It even makes man

Do abominable things

‘Ven in God’s presence

9. Jesus calls you today

Don’t walk in path of sin ‘gain

Repent and turneth thee

Accept Jesus as your Lord

Thank you "anti mi". This is midnight here in Nigeria, 2:36am, so I say, "e karo anti", (translation good morning my elder sister) and have a lovely day and week in Jesus name. Amen.
