(Sung in Swahili)

Unaona kama kila unachoguza kimeharibika
(You feel as though everything you touch is destroyed)
Ujasiri wa kusema tena umetoweaka
(You do not have the bravery to speak again)
Maana kila unalosema wewe, kama unakosea
(Because all you say, you feel is wrong)
Umechanganyikiwa, ni Mungu anajua unayopotia
(You are confused, only God knows what you are going through)
Na ukisema ueleze, wengi kwao ni furaha
(When you try to speak it, others rejoice in your predicament)
Wewe umwombe Mungu, ubaki kimya
(But you pray to God, and remain silent)
Na mengi umevumilia, moyo umenyong’onyea
(You have persevered in much, your spirit is weakening)
Hapo ulipo sasa, ng’ang’ania tena
(Where you currently are, keep fighting)

Bridge:
Na Mungu hajaruhusu, jaribu kuliko uwezo wako
(For God will not fail you, keep fighting)
Imani nusu, ongeza utashinda
(Add on to your faith, you shall succeed)
Mungu hatoruhusu, ufe kabla ya baraka zako
(For God will not let you die before you see your blessings)
Imani nusu, ongeza utashinda
(Add to your faith, you shall overcome)

Refrain:
Zipo nyakati za furaha, nawe utacheka tena
(There is a time for joy, you will laugh again)
Usijali, Mungu yuko nawe
(Do not worry, God is with You)
Zipo nyakati za furaha, nawe utacheka tena
(There is a time for joy, you will laugh again)
Usijali, Mungu yuko nawe
(Do not worry, God is with You)

Moyo wako una majeraha hufai
(Your heart is bruised, you want to give up)
Tena unasubiri kauli ya mwisho ya mungu
(And you are also waiting for God’s final statement)
Wapo wanaojua, we huna mtoto
(There are those who know that you are childless)
Kwa kejeli wanaulizanga, “ana umri gani?”
(Yet they mock you asking, “how old is your child?”)
Tena wanaojua, umefukuzwa kazi
(And there are those who know that you lost your job)
Kwa kejeli wanaulizanga, “bosi wako yupo?”
(Yet they mock you asking, “is your boss around?”)
Ila nakwambia, hayatodumu, ni nyakati tu
(But I tell you, this will not remain, they are seasons)
Hautobaki hapo, haya ni mapito
(You will not be left there, these things shall pass)
Jipe moyo tazama juu, mwombe Mugnu ujaisiri
(Be encouraged, look to heaven and ask God for strength)
Ni mapito tuu, jipe moyo mkuu
(These things shall pass, be encouraged)
Japo nguvu ya kumwomba, muishie Mungu
(Though you are weak to pray, lean on God)
Ni mapito tuu, jipe moyo mkuu
(These things shall pass, be encouraged)

(Bridge + Refrain)

Repeat: Ni sawa hawajui, unakopita (It’s OK, they don’t know your paths)
Hata wakizusha maneno ya uongo wakakwambia umemuasi Mungu
(Even if they lie to you saying you have disobeyed God)
Wakaja na unabii, wakasema umefika mwisho wako wewe
(Though they come with prophesies, saying you are finished)
Wakainuka ndugu wa karibu, wakakusema ovyo ovyo
(Your close brothers rose and spoke against you)
Ikawa kila kitu ni kimya, marafiki ni kimya
(It became that everything is silent, your friends are quiet)
Kama ndoa ni yako, lakini ndani ni uadui
(Though the looks happy, but inside there are hostilities )

(Refrain)
