A Hymn: There Shall Be No Pandemic There

Author:

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

a-hymn-there-shall-be-no-pandemic-there

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

Sorry, I could not get the English tune of the Hymn used, here inserted is the Yoruba tune, enjoy the melody.

Ore bi Jesu kosi laye yi

The Composed Song

1. I saw ‘ceedingly a great white throne

Which someone has even sat upon

Before whom the earth and heaven flee off

And no place was found for ‘em again

Refrain/Chorus

Our tears shall be wiped off/2x

The names of those of us in the book of life


2. I saw the dead both small and great

Who are standing even before the throne

To be judged even ‘cording to their works

When they were even in the flesh

Refrain/Chorus


3. I saw the books ‘ven before the throne

In the books every works were written

There were ‘ven books which were opened

And the book of life was opened

Refrain/Chorus


4. The sea gave up the dead in her

The death and even the hell inclusive

All the people were even judged

even ‘cording to their works on earth

Refrain/Chorus


5. All the people whose name weren’t written

And in the Lamb’s very book of life

Were even told to ‘part even from me

Even into the lake of fire

Refrain/Chorus


6. But those of us whose names are written

Even in the very book of life

Were also told to enter great joy

Which hath been prepared for us all

Refrain/Chorus


7. The present heaven and the present earth

All of them shall even pass off

And there shall even be no more a sea

We shall ever be with the Lord

Refrain/Chorus


8. The very new heaven and the very new earth

Holy city, new Jerusalem

Where there shall be no morning neither ‘vening

Death, crying nor ‘demic diseases

Refrain/Chorus


9. All the former things hath even passed ‘way

Tabernacle of God is with us

Jesus is our light even day and night

Ha! It’s even joy ‘veryday

Refrain/Chorus
