(Sung in Taita – A Hymn)

Mkiri odu Jesu dakuvoya (Our Savior Jesus, we pray unto You)
Iside wanyonge (For we are weak)
Ngolo redudari gunya kwako (We give our hearts unto You)
Dakulomba kuditesie (We pray that You help us)
Dakulomba kudihoreshe (We pray that You heal us)

Kaung’a yachee, Kaung’a yachee (Sin came, sin came)
Kaung’a yachee wurumwengunyi (Sin came to the world)
Yadiredia makongo (And brought sickness) (Repeat)

Refrain:
Kaung’a ya dinjira sere (Sin removed our safety)
Kaung’a ya dinjira ndigi (Sin weakened our Strength)
Yadiredia kifwa na wasi (And brought trouble and death unto us)
Kaung’a ya di Tanya na Mlungu (Sin separates us from God) (Repeat)

Na mfwano dichamneka (We shall give you an example)
Choka kuka ka kusei barie chongo (If you do not strike the serpent’s head)
Yadaredelwa malemba ni mbao, (Will be assisted by its helper/friend)
Naiya pata mruke na kwenda (He is restored and leaves) (Repeat)

(Refrain)

Mkiri odu Jesu dakuvoya (Our Savior Jesus, we pray unto You)
Iside wanyonge (For we are weak)
Ngolo redudari gunya kwako (We give our hearts unto You)
Dakulomba kuditesie (We pray that You help us)
Dakulomba kudihoreshe (We pray that You heal us)

(Refrain)

Da agenda kwa waganga (We turn to witchcraft)
Da-funya mafungu malazi (And part with a lot of money)
Da-rigi twa na kuchugwa ngoru (We are cut and given remedies)
Da-liwa Mganga ni Jesu (Forgetting that Jesus is the Healer) (Repeat)

(Refrain)

(Oye) Kaung’a ya di Tanya na Mlungu! (Oh, Sin separates us from Godx3
