Thy Kingdom come , Oh King – Awe Jesujoba Isaac

THY KINGDOM COME, OH KING

Thy will be done, Kábíyèsí,
thy will only be done, oh king;
a thousand maidens if you will,
fifty-seven herd of cattle for the carnival grill.
Let heads roll at your disposal
if you wish, my king, satisfy your heart’s desire.

Ìrùkẹ̀rẹ̀ àkóso fún agbára, ọ̀pá àṣẹ fún ipá;
at your appearance; dignity and awe, worship and regard,
at your feet, kingdoms melt away like snow,
quivers shatter out of sight with falling bows
trembling like the vibrations of a struck bass guitar—
akọni ọkùnrin ogun, àjànàkú tí n m’igbo kìjikìji bí i t’agbádá.

Your outstretched hands commands the flight of a million arrows
ọba a mújó lẹ́kẹlẹ́kẹ òkìkí ọjọ gbogbo,
brave judge, great ruler, supreme king,
we marvel at your doings and we adore your lordship;
but before you go up to join the departed stars up in the sky
thy kingdom come, oh king, máa jọba lọ títí láí.

– ‘Jọba
