When you are feeling low, when you are without hope
Lost and in despair, fix your eyes on him
Oh what joy, for those who trust in the Lord

Fix your eyes on Him, and oh what joy
For those who trust in the Lord,
Lift up your eyes, unto thy hills,
Lift up your eyes, unto thy hills

Lift up your eyes (Lift up your eyes)
Unto thy hills (Lift up your eyes)
Lift up your eyes (Lift up your eyes)
Unto thy hills (Lift up your eyes) [repeat]

Ohh……
Ohh….
God we praise you…
God we magnify you…
Ohh….

Tongo etana, butu eyinda eh (The Dawn is breaking, wake up)
Kembo na nzambe, etondi mokili iii (God’s glory, is going around the world)
Batunaka ngai, wapi nzambe na yo (The world asks me, where is your God?)
Nzambe na ngai, afandi na nkembo o okumama yahweh
(I say my God is seated in glory, Oh Yahweh, be praised!)

Eh Yahweh, eh yahweh kumama (kumama yahweh) (Yahweh be praised)
Eh yahweh, eh yahweh kumama (oh kumama yahweh) (Yahweh be praised)
eh yahweh eh yahweh kumama (Yahweh be praised)
eh yahweh eh yahweh kumama (Yahweh be praised)

Na mokilli batunaka ngai, wapi nzambe na yo (I was asked, where is your God?)
Nayanoli na lolendo, avandi na nkembo (And with pride, I replied that He lives in glory)
Engambe mobali, nzambe oyo azongaka sima te
(He is valiant, this God who will stop at nothing)
Tika na netola yo, makasi na ngai  (The let me magnify Him, for He is my strength)

Wuta na yeba masiya, posa ya mokili esila ngai
(As I know the Messiah, I’m not attracted by this world)
namela may’a bomoyi, azipa libulu’a motema
(I drank the water of life and the emptiness in my heart was filled)
natika koluka luka bipayi binso, nazua oyo ya motuya
(I will stop searching , for I found my treasure)
pauni na ngai ya talo, masiya Yesu na ngai

Nzamb’eyo baluba babengi panda njila, akelaka nzela ata n’ebale
