Lyrics - French
Une femme, une aide
Celle qui se lève tôt, fait tout, Arrange tout, s’occupe de tout.
Celle qui prévient des chutes, Qui pardonne les erreurs
Qui trouve toujours la solution à tous
Celle qui peut être faible mais pas lâche,
Qui sait tomber et se relever parce qu’elle a en elle la force du cœur
Celle qui sait souffrir ayant le sourire aux lèvres,
Celle qui aime, celle qui persévère
L’os de tes os, chair de ta chair
Une femme est plus qu'une mère
Rappelez-vous le jour où vous vous êtes engagé à l'aimer dans le pire et dans le meilleur, à la protéger
Rien n'est plus beau que l’amour partagé
On met des efforts ensemble et rien ne peut l'endommager
Même l'infertilité, le plus lourd fardeau de certains couples, leur abime
Femmes longtemps rejetées comme si elles avaient commis un crime
Laissez-moi vous informer à travers mes rimes
Qu'elle n’est pas la seule cible
Que c’est possible que l’homme soit aussi infertile
Femme tu es plus qu'une mère
L'infertilité est différente de la stérilité
C'est pourquoi vous ne devriez pas perdre courage
Accueillez tout nouveau traitement à bras ouverts
Car tant qu'il y a la vie, il y a toujours de l'espoir
Peu importe le résultat, ce qui n’est pas possible à l'homme est possible à Dieu.
Femme tu es plus qu'une mère
 
Une femme est plus qu'une mère
Car elle a la capacité de sauver sa société
Elle a les potentialités efficaces pour être utile dans sa nation
Avant que la terre ne soit créée, tu connaissais son nom
Avant que tu créas Eve, tu connaissais son nom
L'évangile a été prêché premièrement par une femme
Jésus est venu par une femme
 
L'union fait la force, homme et femme unissons-nous
L'union fait la force, homme et femme
Car il (Jésus-Christ) a tout payé
Il n'y a plus de condamnation, nous avons été rachetés
Car il (Jésus-Christ) a tout payé
Il n'y a plus de condamnation, nous avons été rachetés
 
Une femme infertile ne doit pas être discriminée
Une femme infertile ne doit pas être discriminée
Car la fertilité est une responsabilité partagée
Car la fertilité est une responsabilité partagée
 
Couples infertiles, informez-vous
Faites un bilan, consultez les médecins
Couples infertiles, informez-vous
Faites un bilan, consultez les médecins
 
Anna n'a pas été discriminée, elle a eu l’affection de son mari
Sarah n'a pas été discriminée, discriminée
 
Femme tu es magnifique, tu es plus qu’une mère
Tu es forte, oh inébranlable
Femme tu es magnifique, tu es plus qu’une mère
Tu es forte, oh inébranlable
 
L'union fait la force, homme et femme unissons-nous
L'union fait la force, homme et femme
Car il (Jésus-Christ) a tout payé
Il n'y a plus de condamnation, nous avons été rachetés
Car il (Jésus-Christ) a tout payé
Il n'y a plus de condamnation, nous avons été rachetés
 
Iyelele femme eh eh, Iyelele femme eh eh X 4

Lyrics - English
A woman, a helper
The one who gets up early, does everything, arranges everything, takes care of everything.
The one that prevents falls, who forgives mistakes
Who always finds the solution to all
The one that can be weak but not coward,
Who knows how to fall and get up because she has the strength of the heart
The one who knows how to suffer having a smile,
The one who loves, the one who perseveres
The bone of your bones, flesh of your flesh
A woman is more than a mother
Remember the day you committed yourself to love her for better and for worst, to protect her
Nothing is more beautiful than shared love
We put efforts together and nothing can damage it
Even infertility, the heaviest burden of some couples, damages them
Women long rejected as if they had committed a crime
Let me inform you through my rhymes
That she is not the only target
It's possible that man is also infertile
Woman you are more than a mother
Infertility is different from barrenness
That's why you should not give up
Welcome all new treatment with open arms
Because as long as there is life, there is always hope
No matter the result, what is not possible to man is possible to God.
Woman you are more than a mother
 
A woman is more than a mother
Because she has the ability to save her society
She has the effective potential to be useful in her nation
Before the earth was created, you knew her name
Before you created Eve, you knew her name
The gospel was first preached by a woman
Jesus came by a woman
 
Unity is strength, man and woman let us unite
Unity is strength, man and woman
Because he (Jesus Christ) paid for everything
There is no more condemnation, we have been redeemed
Because he (Jesus Christ) paid for everything
There is no more condemnation, we have been redeemed
 
An infertile woman should not be discriminated
An infertile woman should not be discriminated
Because fertility is a shared responsibility
Because fertility is a shared responsibility
 
Infertile couples, get informed
Do lab tests, consult the doctors
Infertile couples, get informed
Do lab tests, consult the doctors
 
Hannah was not discriminated, she had the affection of her husband
Sarah was not discriminated, discriminated
 
Woman you are beautiful, you are more than a mother
You are strong, oh steadfast
Woman you are beautiful, you are more than a mother
You are strong, oh steadfast
 
Unity is strength, man and woman let us unite
Unity is strength, man and woman
Because he (Jesus Christ) paid for everything
There is no more condemnation, we have been redeemed
Because he (Jesus Christ) paid for everything
There is no more condemnation, we have been redeemed
 
Iyelele woman eh eh, Iyelele woman eh eh X 4
