Ebe – Sola Allyson (Song Of The Day)

Ebe by Sola Allyson is a song of prayer. A psalm of prayer that I believe we all need to render to God before we proceed with this year.

The literal translation of Ebe is “plea“. In this song, Sola Allyson uses her powerful voice to call on God for intervention in all aspects of her life.
She leads us to God’s throne room to seek God’s face. Her prayer request can be summed up thus, “Lord, let your grace and mercy come upon me.”

I don’t know about you, but I know I need God’s grace and mercy and manifold portions this year. Overflowing, extravagantly, to a point where everyone who comes in contact with me also experiences it.
We need grace for the race ahead of us this year. Recovery for all we lost or failed to achieve last year, and the breath of God upon all we attempt this year.

I must say here that the Yoruba language and other African languages bring a depth to prayer that I think is difficult to achieve with the English language.
Ebe though rendered majorly in the Yoruba language is transcribed in English. For me, many of the phrases do not translate though.
The weight and impact of the words are lost in translation. Some are just not translatable.
If you understand the Yoruba language, I will advise you to ignore the subtitle as it might hinder your connection to the song.

Another day will be dedicated to appreciating Sola Allyson’s beautiful and powerful voice. Today will be dedicated to sending what might be our most important prayer for 2021 up to God.

Lord, I’ve come to seek Your face
Let Your grace and Your mercy come upon me, Lord
