(Languages: Kinyarwanda, English)

Nubwo muri iyi Isi, Ibibazo ari byinshi  (Though the world is full of problems)
Nifuza kubaho, mfite amahoro (I desire to live in peace)
But the devil doesn’t leave me alone, ever
The devil doesn’t leave me alone, oh never
Akora uko ashoboye kwose (He tries his best to take away my blessings)
To take away my blessings

Refrain:

Nzahagarara kumunara wanjye (I will stand at the watchtower)
Ntegereze icyo wambwiye (And await for what You promised me)
Nzahagarara kumunara wanjye (I will stand at the watchtower)
Ntegereze icyo wambwiye (And await for what You promised me)
Ngutegereze (I will wait for You)
Nzagutegereza Mana (God, I will wait for You)
I will wait for You, I will wait for You, I will wait for You
Ngutegereze (I will wait for You)  (Repeat)

Namenye ko niyo ucecetse (I have come to know that even when You are silent)
Bitavuze ko wandetse (It doesn’t mean that You’ve forsaken me)
Ntakizambuza gutabarwa (Nothing will prevent my rescue)
Ntakizakubuza guseruka (Nothing will stop You from my rescue)
I will wait for You, I will wait for You, I will wait for You
Ngutegereze (I will wait for You)

(Refrain)
