2 Comments


(Sung in Swahili)

Chorus:
Yahwe Uhimidiwe, (Yahweh be praised)
uaminifu wako umejulikana (Your faithfulness is known)
Kwa mataifa yote ya ulimwengu, Yahweh (By all the nations, Yahweh)
Yahwe Uhimidiwe, (Yahweh be praised)
uaminifu wako umejulikana (Your faithfulness is known)
Kwa mataifa yote ya ulimwengu, Yahweh (By all the nations, Yahweh)

Verse 1:
Uliumba lakini haukumbwa, (You created, but you were not created)
Jina lako jemedari, ninakuinua(You are the General, I lift you up)
Jina lako mkombozi, ninakupenda(You are the savior, I love you)
Umefuta jina langu kwenye hukumu(You have erased my name from the judgement)
Umefuta jina langu kwenye laana (You have erased my name from the curse)
Ndio maana ninakuina Mungu wangu ee(That is why I raise you up my God)
Kwa sababu siko tena chini ya dhambi ee(Because I am no longer under sin)

(Chorus)

Verse 2:
Kama si wewe Yesu ningeitwa nani?(If not for you Jesus, what would my name be?)
Kama si wewe Yesu Ningekuwa wapi?(If not for you Jesus, where would I be?)
Kama si wewe Yesu ningeenda wapi?(If not for you Jesus, where would I go?)
Kama si wewe Baba ningesema nini?(If not for you father, what would I say?)
Asante Bwana Yesu kwa ukombozi(Thank you Lord Jesus for the redemption)
Asante Bwana Yesu Kwa wokovu(Thank you Lord Jesus for the salvation)
Ndio maana nakuinua Mungu wangu(That is why I lift you up my God)
Umeniokoa mimi kwa damu ya bei(You have saved me from the price of blood)
Umenitendea mambo ya ajabu(You have done great things for me)
Ninakuinua Baba yahweh(I lift you up my father Yahweh)

(chorus)

Verse 3:
Majina yote mazuri ni yako baba(All the good names are yours father)
Unaitwa Jehova shammah, ninakupenda(You are Jehovah Shammah, I love you)
Unaitwa Jehova Jehova Jireh, ninakupenda(You are Jehovah Jireh, I love you)
Unaitwa Jehova Nissi bendera ya ushindi wangu(You are Jehova Nissi, my glorious banner)
Asante Baba yangu kwa upendo wako(Thank you my father for your love)
Hakuna Mwingine kama wewe(There is no one else like you)
Hakuna Mwingine kama wewe(There is no one else like you)
Ninakupenda Baba yangu(I love you my father)

(Chorus)

Nanguyana eyoshona (He is fleeing)
Nanguyana eyoshona (He is fleeing)
Uyabaleka uyabaleka usathane(The devil is fleeing) (x3)

Thina simnqobile, usathani (We have overcome him, the devil)
Thina simnqobile, usathani (We have overcome him, the devil)
Thina simnqobile, usathani (We have overcome him, the devil)
Ngegazi elemvana usathani (By the blood of the lamb)(x6)

Nanguyana eyoshona (He is fleeing)
Nanguyana eyoshona (He is fleeing)
Uyabaleka uyabaleka usathane(The devil is fleeing)

(Sung in Swahili)

Chorus:
Naendelea mbele, naendelea mbele (I’m moving forward, I’m moving forward)
Sirudi nyuma tena, naenda na Yesu (No turning back again, I’m going with Jesus)
(Repeat)

Mengi nimeona, ya kunivuta nyuma (I have seen many things that want to turn me)
Ewe Bwana Yesu, umenisaidia (You Lord Jesus, have helped me)
Sio kwa nguvu, wala mamlaka (Not by my might, or my power)
Bali ni kwa Roho, wako mtakatifu (But by your Holy Spirit)

(Chorus)

Kama si wewe Yesu, ningekuwa wapi (If it wasn’t for you Jesus, Where would I be?)
Ebeneza Mungu wangu, umenitoa mbali (My God Ebenezer, you’ve brought me from far)
Nami nimeamua, takufuata milele (And I have resolved, to follow you forever)
Baba Yangu we, usiniache naenda (My Father you, don’t leave me I’m following)

(Chorus)

Umeniumba mimi, kwa umbo lako Yesu (You’ve created me in your image Jesus)
Menipa Ujasiri, wa Roho wako Mungu (You’ve given me your Spirit’s courage)
Ninaweza yote, wewe waniwezesha (I can conquer all, you enable me)
Sio kwa nguvu wala mamlaka, ni kwa Roho wako (Not by might or power, but by your Spirit)

(chorus)

Watoto vijana twende, wamama wazee twende (Children youth, Women, men lets go)
Kenya yote twende, twende kwa Yesu (All Kenya lets go, Let’s go to Jesus’)
Uropa Asia twende, Afrika yote twende (Europe, Asia let’s go, All Africa lets go)
Dunia nzima twende, twende kwa Yesu (All the world let’s go, let’s go to Jesus’)
Kanisa lote twende, watoto wote twende (All church let’s go, All children let’s go)
(repeat)

Chorus:
Akisema atakubarik hakuna atakayezuia
(If he says He will bless you, no one will prevent it)
Kwani yeye ndiye Mungu mwenye baraka zote
(For He is the God with all the blessings)
Akisema atakubarik hakuna atakayezuia
(If he says He will bless you, no one will prevent it)
Kwani yeye ndiye Mungu mwenye baraka zote
(For He is the God with all the blessings)

Akisema atakubariki, wala usitie shaka
(If He says He will bless You, do not orry)
Kwani yeye ndiye Mungu mwenye baraka zote
(For He is the God with all the blessings)
Mipango yake ya ajabu, tena haibadiliki
(His plans are amazing, and they do not change)
Akisema atakuinua, ndiye mwenye kuinua
(If He says he will lift You, He is the lifter)
Akisema atakupa mtoto, katika umri wowote
(If He says He will give you a child, at any age)
Aliwapa Sara na Ana, lipi asiloweza
(He gave to Sarah and Hannah, What can He not do?)

(Chorus)

Akisema atakubariki, watoto wako waelimike
(If He says He will bless you, your children to be educated)
Wapate na shahada nyingi, hakuna atakayezuia
(To get a lot of degrees, no one can prevent it)
Akisema utapona, hakuna atakayezuia
(If He says you will be healed, no one can prevent it)
Mama aliyetokwa na damu alipona na kazi(?) yake
(For He healed the woman with the issue of blood)
Akisema atakubariki, hakuna atakayezuia
(If He says He will bless you, no one will prevent it)
Atalinda afya yako, maana yeye ndiye mwenye afya
(He will care for your health, for He is the one who gives it)

(Chorus)

Watembelea miguu, hata baisikeli huna
(You trek on foot, you do not own even a bicycle)
Akisema uendeshe Musso, kesho utaendesha
(If He says you will drive a Musso, tomorrow you will drive it)
Waishi nyumba ya matope, huna hata mavazi
(You live in a house made in mud, you do not even have clothing)
Akisema atakubariki, majirani watashangaa
(If He says He will bless you, even your neighbors will be amazed)
Akisema atakuinua, mbele ya adui zako
(If He says He will lift You, before your enemies)
Atakuandalia meza ule unywe wakitizama
(He will prepare a table for you to eat and drink as they look on)

(Chorus)
