Translation:
Ifá is the master of today
Ifá is the master of tomorrow
Ifá is the master of the day after tomorrow as well
Orunmila is the master of all the four days
Established here on earth by the divinities
Cast Ifá for Orunmila
On the day that all the malevolent supernatural powers
Were repeatedly haunting his household
Death disease loss paralysis affliction
Were all glancing at Orunmila
They were saying that
One day they would be successful at killing him
Orunmila then consulted his Ori.
Ogunda Meji was divined
He was advised to offer sacrifice
He offered the sacrifice
After he had completed the sacrifice
His Ori provided protective shielding for him.
Death could no longer kill him
Nor could diseases affect him
He was dancing he was rejoicing
He was singing the praises of his Ifá priests
His Ifá priests were singing the praises of Ifá
He opened his mouth
Joyous Ifá songs came out
He stretched his legs and found himself dancing
he said it is exactly how his priests predicted:
Ifá is the master of today
Ifá is the master of tomorrow
Ifá is the master of the day after tomorrow as well
Orunmila is the master of all the four days
Established here on earth by the divinities
Cast Ifá for Orunmila
On the day that all the malevolent supernatural powers
Were repeatedly haunting his household
The day death comes looking for me
Ifá spread out and provide protection for me
Just as ewe nla spreads out to shield oori
Just as a big river spreads out to shield the sands of its bed
The day all the malevolent supernatural forces come looking for me
Ifá spread out and provide protection for me
Just as ewe nla spreads out to shield oori
Just as a big river spreads out to shield the sands of its bed
It is etiponola that spreads out and shields the soil
Ifá spread out and provide protection for me
Just as ewe nla spreads out to shield oori
Just as a big river spreads out to shield the sands
Of its bed

Ifa tells us that the offering of sacrifice will protect us from the unseen malevolent forces that have been pestering us in the past. We will not see loss, sickness, or death in our homes any longer.
Ifa enjoins us to offer sacrifice to our Ikin Ifa with one eja ifa (dried mudfish).
May IFA protect us. Ase
