(Sung in Swahili)

Mkono wako, umenishika (You hands are holding me)
Fimbo yako, yaniongoza (Your Staff leads me)
Gongo lako, lanifariji (Your Rod comforts me)
Umenisitiri, umenifanya hodari (You have hidden me, and made me brave)

Pre-Chorus:
Uliliona chozi langu la ndani (You saw my innermost tears)
Ukalifuta na kunipa amani (You wiped them and granted me peace)
Unyonge wangu haukukuweka mbali (My feebleness did not repel You)
Ukaniinua na kunipa thamani (But You lifted me and gave me value/worth)

Refrain:
Ee Bwana, wanitazama (Oh Lord, You see me)
Baba, Mungu usiyelala (Father, God who never sleeps)
Wanitazama! (You see me!)
Baba, Mungu usiyechoka (Father, God who never tires)

Chorus:
Repeat: Yesu we! (Oh Jesus!)
Mini ni mboni yako, Baba (Father I am the pupil)
Jicho lako, Ee Baba (Of Your Eye, Oh Father) (Repeat)

Akili zangu zilifika mwisho (My thoughts reached its end)
Na kuona Mungu hunitazami taabuni (And thought that God You do not see me in my troubles)
Na wanadamu wakapata cha kusema (People got things to say)
Kuwa Mungu wangu hayupo, tena nami (That my God is no longer with me)

Nilipoona ni Mwisho, wewe ukatangaza mwanzo
(When I thought it was the end, You announced the beginning)
Nilipodhani ni pigo, kumbe li lako kusudi
(When I thought it was a punishment, Lo! It was Your will)
Kilipozidi kilio, wewe ukaleta kicheko
(When my cries grew louder, You brought in laughter)
Ukadhihirisha kwa macho, wewe ni langu kimbilio
(You manifested to my eyes,that You are my refuge)
