(Sung in Swahili)

Refrain:
Pale umenitoa Baba (Father from where You’ve brought me)
Pale unanipeleka (To where You are taking me)
Siko pale pale ningependa kuwa (I am not yet where I need to be)
Pia siko pale pale, pale nilianzia (But I am also not where I started from)

Wewe ndiye Bwana unayepeana (You are the God who gives)
Maana kila kitu ni chako (For everything belongs to You)
Wewe ndiye unayeongezana (You are the One who adds)
Tukiwa waaminifu na kidogo (If only we are faithful)
Badala ya njia kombo kombo (Instead of crooked paths)
Afadhali niaze na kidogo (It’s better I start modestly)
Uliniahidi utanibariki (For You promised to bless me)
Silalamiki, nasema asante (I do not complain, but give thanks)

(Refrain)

Aliye na kidogo anata nyingi (The one with little wants more)
Aliye na nyingi anataka amani (The one with excess wants peace)
Hicho ndicho kizungumkuti cha mali (This is the dilemma of wealth)
Tutafute ufalme wa Mungu kwanza (Let us seek first the Kingdom of God)
Badala ya njia kombo kombo (Instead of crooked paths)
Afadhali niaze na kidogo (It’s better I start with little)
Uliniahidi utanibariki (For You promised to bless me)
Silalamiki, nasema asante (I do not complain, but give thanks)

(Refrain)
