(Languages: English, Swahili)

Sometimes in life, tumaini hufifia (hope fades)
Sometimes in life, huzuni kama maji mengi (sorrows like many waters)
And when you need some help, marafiki wakutoroka (Your friends flee you)
And when your strength is gone; hakuna wa kutegemea (There’s no one to depend on)
But I’ve got a word for you:

Shikilia (Hold on), through the darkness night
When faith is gone away, Waweza kusimama (You can stand)
If you just hold on through the rainy storm
When faith is growing thin, waweza kusimama (You can stand)
You can stand

You don’t even understand why they say Mungu akujali (that God cares for you)
The way you feel right now, you don’t even think you can pray
Zake zitakutosha (He is enough for you), This is the time to lift up your voice and say

Nitashikilia (I will hold on), through the darkness night
When faith is gone away, Nitasimama (I will stand)
If I can hold on through the rainy storm
When faith is growing thin, Nitasimama (I will stand) (Repeat)

I will stand x3 Nitasimama, I will stand.
