PSALM 136 AV (Aje's Version)

I decided to write my own thanksgiving poem and this is how it goes

O give thanks unto the Lord: For His mercy endures forever…
Who paid our fee all through secondary school:
For His mercy endures forever.
He gave us Credits in our Wassce, Gsce and NECO: For His mercy endures forever…
All those days we were flogged and chased for not paying the school fee:
For His mercy endures forever…

By His grace, all the ladies we slept with did not get pregnant For His mercy endures forever…
And delivered us from HIV, Hepatitis and all Diseases:
For His mercy endures forever…
He kept us in times of no salt, red oiled rice and garri:
For His mercy endures forever…
Provided us Shelter and a Landlord that minds his business:
For His mercy endures forever…

He graduated us from the University despite Strike and Lecturer’s wahalas: For His mercy endures forever…
Who kept us throughout NYSC and did not let suffering kill us:
For His mercy endures forever…
He provided emergency rescue when we were broke and in a Fix:
For His mercy endures forever…
Who gave us hope that night we contemplated Suicide:
For His endures forever…
Did not allow injections, drips and admissions to kill us:
For His mercy endures forever…

He fathered us when our father packed his things and left:
For His mercy endures forever…
Provided a mother and siblings who loves us no matter what:
For His mercy endures forever…
With a strong hand he kept the enemies at bay:
For His mercy endures forever…
Gave us ideas and resources to start our companies:
For His mercy endures forever…

He died in place of us and gave us his light yoke:
For His mercy endures forever…
Gave us Lagos, Nigeria and all its men of valor:
For His mercy endures forever…
He did not let us bash the wrong car and kept our own unbashed:
For His mercy endures forever…
He gave us hope to love again after all the numerous heartbreak
For His mercy endures forever…
He blessed us with something to do: For His mercy endures forever…
O give thanks unto the God of Heaven: For His mercy endures forever…
O give thanks unto Jesus Christ the Lord of Aje:
For His mercy endures forever…

O give thanks for Zegist and the family we have made
For His mercy endures forever…
O give thanks to God for crossing our paths
For His mercy endures forever…

Please feel free to thank him for the absurd too
