(Sung in Swahili)

Mama, papa (Mother, father)
Naomba baraka kwenyu niondoke mimi (I ask for your blessings for me to leave)
Dada, brotherman (My sister, my brother)
Hebu someni kwa bidii, ndio mje mjini (Study hard, so that you can come to the city)
Hapa, hapa nyumbani (Because here, here at home)
Sisi sio matajiri, ila tunayo akili (While we are not rich, we are intelligent)
Chochote unachohitaji, ukikifanyia kazi (Anything that you need, if you work hard on it)
Yeye atakibariki (He will bless you)

Refrain:
Ila wewe, usisahau kuomba (But for you, do not forget to pray)
Na kila unapo omba (And everytime you pray)
Niombee, nikuombee (Pray for me, pray for me as well)
Kwani maombi yangu pekee, hayawezi (For only my prayers alone, is not sufficient)
Niombee, nikuombee (Pray for me, as I pray for you)
Kwani maombi yangu pekee, hayawezi (For my prayers alone are not sufficient)

My now, my future
Yeye ndiye ajuaye (He is the one who knows it)
Yeye ndiye apangaye (For He is the one that planned it)
Jana, leo, kesho (Yesterday, today, and tomorrow)
Yeye ndiye ajuaye (It is Him that knows it)
Yeye ndiye apangaye (It is He that plans it)
Popote , unapohitaji kuenda, yeye atakufikisha (He will deliver you where you want to go)
Weka imani kwake, shida zako zote (Put your faith in Him, all your troubles)
Hakuna linalomshinda (There is nothing impossible to Him)

(Refrain)
