The hymn titled I am happy in Him is what we are praise God with this week’s episode of Sunday Melody.
Ephesians chapter 5 verse 19 says “Speaking to yourselves in Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs…”
When the chips are down, try hymns! There’s this peace that floods your heart during and after singing any hymn.
My Soul is so Happy in Jesus
My soul is so happy in Jesus,
For He is so precious to me;
His voice it is music to hear it,
His face it is Heaven to see.
I am happy in Him, I am happy in Him;
My soul, with delight
He fills day and night,
For I am happy in Him.
He sought me so long ere I knew Him,
When wandering afar from the fold,
Safe home in His arms He hath brought me,
To where there are pleasures untold.
His love and His mercy surround me,
His grace like a river doth flow;
His Spirit, to guide and to comfort,
Is with me wherever I go.
They say I shall some day be like Him,
My cross and my burden lay down;
Till then I will ever be faithful,
In gathering gems for His crown.
For the love of the Yoruba version of this hymn, let’s have it in the dialect of the western people of Nigeria.
Okan Mi Yo Ninu Oluwa
Okan mi yo ninu Oluwa
‘Tori O je iye fun mi
Ohun Re dun pupo lati gbo
Adun ni lati r’oju Re

Gba gbogbo lo fi ayo kun okan mi
‘Tori emi nyo n’nu Re.
