(Sung in Swahili)

Haleluya naitazamia mbingu mpya na nchi mpya
(Halelujah I look to the new heaven and earth)
Huko nitapumzika milele (There I will rest forever)

Taabu zangu zikiisha, nitamwona Bwana wangu
(When my troubles are over, I will see my Lord)
Akinikaribisha kule, karibu upumzike
(When he welcomes me there, “welcome to the rest”)
Hapa ndipo nyumbani kwako, hapa ndipo mahali pako
(“Here is your home, this is your place”)
Hapa ndipo makao yako, karibu upumzike
(This is your home, welcome to the rest)

Haleluya nitaketi kwa furaha, nitapumzika kwa mungu, nitapumzika
(Halelujah I will sit with joy, I will rest with my God, I will rest)

Nitavikwa mavazi meupe, nitavikwa taji ya ushindi
(I will be clothed with white garments, I will be crowned victorious)
Taabu zote na mateso yote, hakika vitakoma
(All my troubles and tribulations, will end for sure)
Nitaungana na malaika, maserafi na makerubi
(I will join with the angels, the Seraphim and Cherubim)
Tukiimba nyimbo za ushindi, haleluya usifiwe
(While we sing songs of victory, Halelujah be praised)

Naona mbingu zimefunguka, na Yesu yu mkono wa kuume
(I see the heavens open, and Jesus sitting at the right hand)
Akinitazama kwa upole, kwa macho yenye huruma
(Looking at me with compassionate eyes) x2

Tatazama vidonda vyangu, tatazama makovu yangu
(He will take care of my wounds, He will take care of my scars)
Niloumizwa duniani, na watu wa ulimwengu
(That I was hurt in the world, by the worldly) x2

Tachukua kitambaa, atanifuta machozi
(He will take a cloth, and wipe my tears)
Akisema pole mwanangu, Yesu tanikumbatia
(Saying I’m sorry my child, Jesus will embrace me)

Bado kitambo kidogo, nitapumzika
(Just for a little while, then I will rest)

Yesu atanipeleka, kwenye kijito cha uhai
(Jesus will take me, to the wellspring of life)
Huko taniosha mwili wangu, nitapewa mwili mpya
(There he will wash my body, and be given a renewed one)
Nami nitaimba hosana, hosana ndiye mbarikiwa
(And I will sing Hosannah, Hosannah is the blessed one)
Nitaruka kama ndama, milele hata milele
(I will jump like a calf , forevermore) x2

Tavumilia, kwa ajili yako Baba
(I will persevere for your sake father)

Yatosha walivyokuonea, Yatosha walivyokudhulumu
(Enough of the oppression, enough of the persecution)
Yatosha walivyokupiga, karibu upumzike
(Enough of the beating, welcome and rest) x2

Yatosha walivyokuudhi, Yatosha walivyokutukana
(Enough of the hurt, enough of the insults)
Yatosha walivyokuzomea, karibu upumzike
(Enough of the rebukes, welcome and rest) x2

Haleluya, mateso yangu yakiisha nitauona uso wa Mungu
(Hallelujah, when my persecutions end, I will see the face of God)
Nitamwona Yesu niliyepigwa kwa ajili yake
(I will see the Jesus I was beaten because)

Yatosha walivyokuonea, Yatosha walivyokudhulumu
(Enough of the oppression, enough of the persecution)
Yatosha walivyokupiga, karibu upumzike
(Enough of the beating, welcome and rest) x2

Yatosha walivyokuudhi, Yatosha walivyokutukana
(Enough of the hurt, enough of the insults)
Yatosha walivyokuzomea, karibu upumzike
(Enough of the rebukes, welcome and rest) x2

Yesu atanipeleka, kwenye kijito cha uhai
(Jesus will take me to the wellspring of life)
Huko taniosha mwili wangu, nitapewa mwili mpya
(There he will wash my body, I will be given a new one)

Baada ya taabu, ni furaha
(After troubles is joy)
