(Sung in Swahili – A Hymn)

Sioni haya kwa Bwana (I’m not ashamed of my Lord)
Kwake nitang’ara (In him I will be glorified)
Mti wake sitakana (I will not deny His Tree)
Ni neno imara (It  is the true word)

Refrain:
Msalaba ndio asili ya mema (The Cross the beginning of good)
Nikatua mzigo hapo (I will rest my burdens there)
Nina uzima, furaha daima (I have life, and everlasting joy)
Njoni kafurahini papo (Come, let us be joyful there)

Kama kiti chake vivyo (Just like His throne)
Ni yake ahadi (Are His promises)
Alivyowekewa navyo (That he has been given)
Kamwe, havirudi (That will never be in vain)

(Refrain)

Bwana wangu, tena Mungu (My Lord, and god)
Ndilo lake jina (That is His name)
Hataacha roho yangu (He will not abandon my spirit)
Wala kunikana (Neither will He forsake me)

(Refrain)

Atakiri langu jina (Then will he own my worthless name)
Mbele za Babaye (Before his Father’s face)
Anipe pahali tena (Appoint my soul a place)
Mbinguni nikae (In the new Jerusalem)
