Now the Night Has Fallen and the Day Is Sitting on Its Side

1 Comment

The night has fallen
Now the night has fallen and the day is sitting on its side
Let the swarm of small birds care for how they eat
Let the swarm of small birds care for how the drink
Let the observers of sacred rituals and rites be watchful of time
Let the small birds be on the watch for assailants
Oriri Sewele
The Babalawo in the house of Onigede
Cast Ifa for Onigede early in life
On the day he complained of not having any fortunes
He was asked to perform a sacrificial ritual
They said that by dusk (old age)
All the good fortunes would get to him
Wealth, come and enter the household of Onigede
Oriri Sewele
You are the Babalawo of the household of Onigede
Good spouse, enter the home of Onigede today
Oriri Sewele
You are the Babalawo of the household of Onigede
Children, enter the home of Onigede today
Oriri Sewele
You are the Babalawo of the household of Onigede
Peace of mind, enter the home of Onigede today
Oriri Sewele
You are the Babalawo of the household of Onigede
All good fortunes, enter the home of Onigede today
Oriri Sewele
You are the Babalawo of the household of Onigede
