Sleep on, Abogun,  beloved, sleep, and take thy rest.

In African
Spread the love

 

Sleep on, Abogun,  beloved, sleep, and take thy rest;
Chief Fatai, Lay down thy head upon the Savior’s breast;
We love thee well, but God loves thee best
Good night! Good night! Good night!

 

 

Calm is thy slumber as an infant’s sleep;
But thou shalt wake no more to toil and weep;
Nor worry about Penkele’ in Oyo’s mess
Thine is a perfect rest, secure and deep
WorriLess on the forthcoming  Ambassadorial list

Good night! Good night! Good night Abogun !

Until the shadows from this earth are cast,
Until He gathers in His sheaves at last;
Until the twilight gloom be over past
Good night! Good night! Good night Abogun !

Until the God’  glory lights the skies,
Until the dead  shall arise,
And He shall come, but not in lowly guise
Good night! Good night! Good night Abogun !

Until, made beautiful by love divine,
Thou, in the likeness of thy Lord shall shine,
And He shall bring that golden crown of thine
Good night! Good night! Good night Abogun !

Only “Good night,” beloved–not “farewell!”
A little while, and all His saints shall dwell
In hallowed unison indivisible
Good night! Good night! Good night Abogun !

Until we meet again before His throne,
Clothed in the spotless robe He gives His own,
Until we know even as we are known
Good night! Good night! Good night Abogun!

Good night , Chief Fatai Abimbola.
Good night , The real Abogun
