Refrain:
Baba, umejua kunifurahisha
(Father, You know how to give me joy)
Baba, umenifuta machozi
(Father, You have wiped away my tears)
Daddy Oh, umejua kunifurahisha
(Daddy oh, You know how to give me joy)
Baba, nitakusifu milele
(Father, I will praise You forever) (Repeat)

Umerudisha tabasamu langu, usoni
(You have restored the smile on my face)
Umerejesha na furaha yangu, moyoni
(You have restored the joy in my heart)
Umenijubu kwa wakati, isiyo gani?
(You have answered me in times not known)
Baba umejua kunifurahisha
(Father You give me joy)
Niliyeitwa laana, nimefanyika baraka
(I was called a curse, I am now a blessing)
Niliyeoneka sifai, umeniheshimisha
(I was seen as useless, You have honored me)
Umenipa sababu ya kujidai, na kukutukuza
(You have given me a reason to boast and to worship You)
Baba, umejua kunifurahisha
(Father, You know how to give me joy)

(Refrain)

Father to the fatherless, look what You’ve done for me
You’ve done for me
You’ve wiped the tears from my eyes, Lord
You looked what You’ve
The chains and the shackles that held me bound
You have cut it away
Oh what a life, beautiful life You’ve given me
Baba, umejua kunifurahisha
(Father You give me joy)
Baba, nitakusifu milele
(Father I will praise You forever)

(Refrain)

Umejua kunifurahisha, Baba oh
(Oh Father You know how to give me joy)
Baba umejua kunifurahisha, Baba oh
(Father You give me joy)
My mother couldn’t do it, Baba oh
My father couldn’t do it, Baba oh
Daddy Oh, umejua kunifurahisha
(Daddy oh, You know how to give me joy)

You picked me up from the miry clay, Baba oh
and set my feet on the rock to stay, Baba oh
Kweli umeondoa aibu yangu, Baba oh
(Truly You have removed my shame)
No one can do the things you do Jesus, Baba oh
Daddy Oh, umejua kunifurahisha
(Daddy oh, You know how to give me joy)

Amani yako imenihifadhi Baba, Baba oh
(Your peace has kept me, Oh Father)
Kweli umejua kunifurahisha, Baba ooh
(Truly You give me joy)
Oh, Baba oh
Daddy Oh, umejua kunifurahisha
(Daddy oh, You know how to give me joy)
