Tune: Wa ba mi gbe, ale fere le tan
1. Oh! what a name so pleasant as of Mum
Hark the ear, offering gentle soul a rest
Oh what a sweet savour not meet for
In such a name so great as of the Mum.
2. Oh! mother who for the child suffereth shame
Oh! mother who for the child doth weepeth
Great mother thou who for the child
Thou shall I ever love, O! precious mum.
3. Almighty God, Thine help an my desire
For parents, Oh Lord make me to afford
Abundant joy, I cherish, Lord I plead
May I ne’er premature-ly hence depart.
4. No affectionate counsellor like Christ
Wonderful Father, my needs doth provide
Incarnate Son of the creator God
Thine protection and grace, Oh Lord I plead. Amen
