A Hymn: Turn Yourselves, and Live Ye

Updated on July 25, 2020

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 Tune of Hymn to Use

“It is not meet for saints to fear

Nor for them to despair,

For when they least expect his help

The savior will appear”

Look and Live

The Composed Song

1. Proverb that some put forward is that

Fathers have eaten the fruits

The fruits they ate are the sour grapes

Children’s teeth got sour taste

2. But when the Lord heard of this word

He answered them and said

Ye shall no more ‘ve occasion to use

This proverb again in your midst

3. Because all souls are even mine

As the soul of father is mine

So also the soul of the son

Also belong to me

4. As the soul of the old is mine

So also the soul of youth

And all the souls that have even sinneth

In die he shall dieth

5. But if there be a man that can

Be just and do the right

That is walking in my statutes

He surely shall even live

6. But if there be any of the youth

That is doing all evil

That also oppress the poor

In die he shall dieth

7. The soul that sinneth it shall die

Son shan’t bear ‘niquity of father

Neither shall father bear iniquity of son

Blood of sinner ‘ll be on him

8. But even if the wicked one

Can even turn away

From all sin he hath committed

Surely he shall even live

9. And if the righteous can turneth

‘Way from his righteousness

And he ‘s done abominations

He ‘ll die in his ‘bomination

10. Therefore take ye your trespass

Away even from you

And make ye a heart an’ a spirit

That is new for yourself

11. I do not have any pleasure

That the wicked should die

Except he should also turneth

That he also should live

12. Therefore returneth ye to me

All the end of the world

I am the savior even beside

Me there is no savior.


I could not find the English Version on Youtube, is the Link for the Yoruba version. Enjoy the melody.

It is not meet for Saints to fear
