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

The night has fallen
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

Morning Prayer to Orunmila

I call upon Ire from the east, the west, the north, and the south to come and stay with me today
Olugbode is the name given to Aje
Olugbode is the name given to Aje
Aje please let me have you in my hands
Please let me have you in all my endeavors
The chameleon never lacks anything in his life
All blessings should come and answer me today
When the sun rises, it will rise for the whole world
There is nothing that can overpower the rising of the sun
So all my blessings, wherever you may be, I command you to come and stay with me
Orunmila, please go to Olodumare’s house and bring me my blessings
I’m looking for all blessings but my hands can’t grab or reach them
Orunmila, please go to Olodumare’s house and bring me all blessings in life

All the Rivers of the World Put Together Are Not as Remarkable as the Ocean

All the rivers of the world put together
Are not as remarkable as the Ocean
All the streams of the world put together
Are far less than the Lagoon
Cast Ifa for Orisanla Oseremagbo (Obatala)
On the day he was to be made king
When all the deities wanted to take away one of its powers
Orunmila refused to grant their wish, so did Elegbara
There is no Odu Ifa that takes precedence over Ejiogbe
The paramount Odu
Ejiogbe, you are the paramount Odu
Any river that does not recognize the pre-eminence of the Ocean
Will dry up completely
Before the savannah burns, it will first dry up
I request for wealth from Olosa, the second in command
I received this but not sufficiently
I requested for wealth from Olokun Seniade
The king of all rivers
I received but not sufficiently
Who does not know that it is only the wealth
Given by OLODUMARE that lasts for life?

Sow Humanness and Honesty Today for a Blissful Tomorrow

It is the big rod that torments the gong
Torrential rains reduce the ant-hill to mud
Osun Ewuji, desirous of eating and drinking
Crawled stealthily into the ocean
Cast IFA for Eyin-Iwa (Thereafter)
Who is the senior of Oni (Today)
You people of Isinpe
It is because of Eyin-Iwa
That we should be benevolent to Oni (Today)
For whatever seed we plant today
We shall reap the fruits tomorrow
Sow humanness and honesty today
For a blissful tomorrow
