Lyrics to Oniduro mi by Adeyinka Alaseyori
Oniduro mi, e seun o (The One who stands by me/my Guarantor, thank you)
Agbejo ro mi, e ma seun o (My Advocate, thank you)
B’oje eyan lo duro ni , won a ti ma s’oro (If it’s a person that stands for me, they would have been complaining)
B’oje eniyan lo duro ni, won a ti s’alo (If it’s a person that stands for me, they would run away)
B’oje eniyan lo duro ni, won a ti ma s’eregun (If it’s a person that stands for me, they would have been mumbling)
Oniduro mi, e seun o (The One who stands for me, thank you)
Ki’se ’mi mo se (It is not by what I can do or capability)
Ki’se agbara mi (It’s not by my power)
Ki’se titobi mi o (It’s not by my being big)
L’ese damisi o Baba (That you have preserved my life O God)
