Amedu Paul 1997 (Kogi)

Life's an hour glass
Time is running fast
Hear the ticking clock
The great shofar will sound

And every minute counts
We will have evil persecution
Evil execution
All because of our faith

Hold on people shall faint
All because of vains
Craze'd to enter the pleasure train
The brave too waned amidst the wasting preys

Is so great to have such a reign
A place of rain of the benevolent grace
I stood amazed at the tower of maze
So I took a gaze of the final day

Here comes my way of the roaring day
I blaze the trail to the holy place
To find the true meaning of my fainting soul
And secure my end of doomings day
