“I would have taken this path, Or perhaps the other path…”

Ifa says:
Ihin ni n ba ya si
Ohun ni n ba ya si
Irona- irona laa sin’ku ore eni
Dia fun Orunmila
Baba n se ohun gbogbo
Ti okan ko yanri
Won ni ko lo fi Olorun re se baba
Gbami o
Olorun mi gbami o
Iwo ni mo gbiye mi le o
Gbami o
Olorun mi gbami o
Iwo ni mo feyinti
Gbami o
Olorun mi o gbami o
Enikan kii feyin ti Olodumare
Ko doju ti ni.

Translation
I would have taken this path
Or perhaps the other path
In confusion do one execute the burial ceremony of one’s close friend
This was the Ifa’s message to Orunmila
When he was doing all things without any accomplishment
He was advised to adopt Olorun (God) as his father
He complied
Save me, please my Olorun
Save me
You are the one I rely upon
Save me, please my Olorun
Save me
You are my pillar of support
Save me, please my Olorun
Save me
Nobody relies on Olodumare and be disappointed
