I call you “Adaba”
You dwell in my “gida”
When I feel unease,
You give me great peace.
In stress, And in distress,
You are my fortress.
When I am in a state of digress,
You make me strong like a tigress.
“Adaba”, My comforter.
“Adaba”, My friend.
Keep dwelling in my “gida”
An ode to the Holy Spirit who leads and directs my path.
Adaba means dove in English. It’s a yoruba word which is often used to symbolise the Holy Spirit.
Gida is an Hausa word, which means house. A place where one lives or dwells.
