(Sung in Zulu)

Kulungile, kulungile (It is well, it is well)
Kulungile, intando yakho (It is well, if it is your will)

Sikhuleha kuwe ngonyama yezulu, sonile (We pray to You, Lion of the Heavens, for we have sinned)
Nalelizwe lis’jikele Baba, s’thethelele (Father, this world is against us, forgive us)
Masambe nawe, s’hlale nawe (Let us walk with you, abide in you)

Okwezwe kusijikele (That of earth is against us)
Sicel’ amandla phezulu (We ass for strength from above)
Masambe nawe, s’hlale nawe (Let us walk with you, abide in you)

Siyabonga, Siyabonga (We thank You, we thank you)
Siyabonga, ng’umusa wakho (We thank you for your Grace) (Repeat)

(Repeat from verse)

As faces are different
So our needs are
We have a father
Who’s capable of reaching us
One on one (Repeat)

Refrain:
Though we are many
Yet You’re engaging us/ Your hand is touching us
One on one (Repeat)

(From the top)

Right now, right here
He’s touching/reaching you
At the point of your need

Right now, right here
You’re touching me / You’re reaching me
At the point of my need (Repeat)

Jesus is touching, He’s touching, He’s touching)
Right now, right here
You’re touching me
at the point of my need
Right now, right here
He’s reaching you
At the point of your need (Repeat)

(Refrain)

Because he is El Shaddai (God Almighty)
the many breasted one
I have been to God
I have never met you there
Because he relates to us
one on one, one on one
reaching me, touching me
different needs, meeting them

He’s reaching me/you, touching me/you
different needs, meeting them (Repeat)

(Refrain)

You’re reaching me, touching me
Different needs, meeting them (Repeat)

El Shaddai! El Shaddai! (God Almighty) x?

I’m amazed by all you do
I’m amazed, you came through for me
Even in my darkest moment
Baba, you lit up my world

I’m amazed by how you care
I’m amazed you’re so full of love
You’ve been good from distant past
And yet, you’re still doing good

Obinigwe (God of the Heavens) x3

Two, four, seven: everyday you come
You come through for me
I had no essence, had no meaning
Lord, you showed up for me

What did I do, to deserve this kind of love?
What did I do, to sit at your right hand?
What did I do, to deserve this kind of love o?

Oh….

I’m amazed! I’m amazed!
I’m amazed you came through for me
I’m amazed, I’m amazed
I’m amazed, You showed up for me

Obinigwe (God of the Heavens) x2

I had no essence, I had no meaning
Lord, you came through for me
I had no standard, I had no helper
Lord, you showed up for me

What did I do, to deserve this kind of love
What did I do, to sit at your right hand
What did I do, to deserve this kind of love o

I’m amazed! I’m amazed!
I’m amazed you came through for me

Obinigwe (He who resides in the heavens) x2

Worthy is the lamb, that sits upon the throne
Worthy is the lamb, that sits upon the throne

What did I do, to deserve this kind of love?
What did I do, to sit at your right hand
What did I do, to deserve this kind of love o

I had no essence, I had no meaning
Lord, you came through for me
I had no platform, I had no helper
Lord, you showed up for me

I had no helper, I had no platform
Lord, you showed up for me
I call you, Obinigwe (the heavenly one!)
I had no meaning, I had no essence
You had nothing, you had no meaning
And yet, he showed up for you
What did you do, to deserve this kind of love?
What did you do, to sit at His right hand?

Worthy is the lamb, that sits upon the throne
Worthy is the lamb, that sits upon the throne

I had no essence, I had no meaning
Lord, you showed up for me
I had no oil, I had no anointing
Lord, you showed up for me

What did you do, to deserve this kind of love?
What did you do, to sit at His right hand?

Teta Nao (Contend with Them) Lyrics by Christina Shusho ft The Dreamers

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili – Psalm 35)

Refrain:
Eh Bwana utete nao wanao teta nami (Oh Lord, contend with those who contend with me)
Upigane nao, wanao pigana nami (Fight those who fight against me)(Repeat)

Ushike ngao na kinga usimame, unisaidie (Take up your shield and armor, arise and come to my aid)
Vuta we mkuki uwapige, wanaonifuatia (Brandish your spear against those who pursue me)
Uambie nafsi yangu mimi ni wokovu wako (Say to me “I am your salvation”)
Uwatoe mkuki uwapige, oh wanao nifuatia (Brandish your javelin, against those who pursue me)
Uambie nafsi yangu “mimi ni wokovu wako” (Say to me “I am your salvation”))
Wananiuliza mambo nisiyoyajua (They question me on things I know nothing about)

(Refrain)

Waaibishwe wafedheheshwe (May they be disgraced and put to shame)
Warudishwe nyuma, wanaotafuta nafsi yangu (May they be dismayed, those who plot my ruin)
Wafadhaishwe, wawe kama makapi (May they be like chaff before the wind)
Mbele yao pepo malaika wa Bwana waangushe chini (With the angel of the Lord driving them away)

Wananilipa mabaya, badala ya mema (They repay me evil for good)
Kutwa kucha waniwinda ili niteseke (All day long, they hunt me so that I suffer)
Niko ndani yako niweke eh Mungu wangu (I am in you, preserve me, Oh my God)
Ubavuni mwako nikumbatie, Jehova wangu (Embrace me to your side, my Jehovah)
Mkononi mwako niweke, eh Mungu wangu (Hold me in your hands, Oh my God)
Ubavuni mwako nikumbatie, Jehova wangu (Embrace me to your side, my Jehovah)

(Refrain)

Njia yao iwe giza na utelezi (May their path be dark and slippery)
Malaika wa Bwana, akiwafuatia (With the angel of the Lord pursuing them)
Uharibifu uwapate kwa ghafla (May ruin overtake them by surprise)
Wa uharibifu waanguke ndani yake (May they fall into the pit they hid)
Mimi bure wasinisemange, bure wasinibonge (That they may not speak against me in vain)
Na uovu wao aloficha umnase mwenyewe (May the evil they hid, catch them)
Bila sababu amenichimbia shimo nafsi yangu (Since without cause they dug a pit for me,)
Mifupa yangu yote itasema (All my bones will exclaim)
“Bwana ni nani aliye kama wewe?” (“Who is like you, Lord?”)
Na nafsi yangu itamfurahia Bwana (Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord)

Wapendeza, Bwana wapendeza (You are exalted, Lord be exalted)
Eh Bwana wapendeza (Oh Lord, be exalted)
Katika hili najua utatenda (In this I know you will do)
Nitetee Bwana nitetee (Defend me Lord, defend me)
Eh Bwana nitetee (Oh Lord, defend me)
Katika hili najua utatenda (In this, I know you will do) (Repeat)
