Ee Bwana nakuinua,nikikumbuka ulikonitoa
(Oh Lord I lift you up, when I remember where you saved me from)
Kwenye maisha ya aibu, na kunifanya wa thamani
(From the life of shame, and made me valuable)

Kama si wewe ningekuwa wapi, kama si wewe ningeitwa nani
(Where would I be if not for you, What would I be called?)
Ningelikuwa nimekufa mimi, kwenye shimo la uharibifu
(I would have been lost, in the hole of corruption)

Ni wengi niliyowajua, wenye mapesa na utajiri
(I knew a lot of people with money and riches)
Wenye majumba ya kifahari, lakini leo hawako tena
(With elaborate mansions, but they are not there today)

Wenye majumba ya kifahari, lakini leo hawako tena
(With elaborate mansions, but they are not there today)
Lakini mimi wanilinda bure, si kwamba nimetenda mema baba
(But you freely secure me, not because I have done good works father)
Bali ni kwa neema yako, ndio maana mimi naishi
(But I live because of your grace)
Sio ni kwamba nimetenda mema baba, ila ni kwa neema yako
(Not because I have done good works father, but because of your grace)
Ndio maana mimi naishi, Wacha nikutuze wewe
(That is why I am alive, so let me praise you)

Siwezi kukulipa baba, kwa yale umenitendea
(I cannot repay you father, for all you have done for me)
Bali naomba moyoni mwangu, nipe moyo wa kukupenda
(But I pray in my heart, that you would give me a loving heart)

(But I pray in my heart, that you would give me a loving heart)
Niondolee kiburi baba, nipe moyo mnyenyekevu
(Remove pride from me father, give me a humble heart)
Ili nikuishie wewe, siku zote za maisha yangu
(So that I live for you, all the days of my life)
(Remove pride from me father, give me a humble heart)
Ili nikuishie wewe, siku zote za maisha yangu
(So that I live for you, all the days of my life)
