Am sure all of us sang this beautiful rhyme in nursery school, thanks to Ann Taylor for composing such an evergreen piece and am reproducing it here. Enjoy!
Who fed me from her gentle breast
And hush'd me in her arms to rest
And on my cheeks sweet kisses prest?
When sleep forsook my open eyes
Who was it sung sweet hushbaby
And rocked me that I should not cry?
Who sat and watched my infant head
When sleeping on my cradle bed
And tears of sweet affection shed?
When pain and sickness made me cry
Who gazed upon my heavy eye
And wept for fear that I should die?
Who taught my infant lips to pray
And love God's holy book and day
And walk in wisdom pleasant ways?
And can I ever cease to be
Affectionate and kind to thee
Who was so very kind to me?
Ah! No the thought I cannot bear
And if God please my life to spare
I hope I shall reward thy care
When thou art feeble old and gray
My healthy arm shall be thy stay
And I will soothe thy pains away
I dedicate this to my mum, Adadioranma Susan Hundeyin, you gave me life, you've had to put up with me and my mischief all these years! I love you mama! Orisa bi iya kosi laiye!!!!!!!!!!!
