Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Ombi langu Bwana nifike kwako (My prayer Lord, is to reach to You)
Ijapo njia zangu ni nyembamba (Though my paths be narrow)
Nitembee nawe Yesu Mwokozi wangu (To walk with You, Jesus my savior)
Dhoruba zijapo nitazishinda (I shall conquer the storms that come my way)

Refrain:
Mtakatifu Mungu mwenyezi (Holy God Almighty)
Alfajiri sifa zako tutaimba (We will sing Your praises at dawn)
Malaika wengi wanakuabudu (Host of Angels worship You)
Elfu maelfu wanakusujudu (Thousands and tens of thousands bow before You)
Ingawa giza linatuficha (Though the darkness hide us)
Fahari tusione (We should not be proud)
Wewe utatuwezesha mbinguni (For You will lead us unto heaven)
Makao ya raha (The home of joy)

Nitembee nawe Mungu (To walk with You God)
Unene nami kwa upole (Speak to me gently)
Ingawa njia sioni (Though I do not see the path)
Maana dhoruba baharini (For the sea is stormy)
Mitego ya miguu elfu (And there are traps for a thousand lengs)
Ukinishika mkono (But if You hold my hands)
Anasa kwangu hasara (Earthly luxuries for me are meaningless)
Tautika msalaba (I shall carry the cross)
Hata mji wa Zayuni (Until the city of Zion)
(Mimi) Nitapata pumziko (Where I shall find rest)

Repeat: (Mimi) Nitapata pumziko (Where I shall find rest)
Ule mji wa Zayuni (In that City of Zion)
Kwetu mji wa Zayuni (Our City of Zion)

(Refrain)

(Sung in Swahili)

Refrain:
Ni nani aliye Mungu, Mungu ila Bwana
(Who is like God, if not the Lord?)
Ni nani aliye Mwamba, Mwamba ila Mungu
(Who is the rock, the Solid Rock if not God?)
Ni Mungu ndiye anifungaye mshipi wa nguvu, aha!
(It’s God who who girds me with strength)
Ni Mungu ndiye kimbilio la unyonge wangu, aha!
(It is God who is my refuge in my weakness)
Naye anaifanya kamilifu njia yangu
(He who makes my path complete)
Ni Mungu ndiye anifungaye mshipi wa nguvu, aha!
(It’s God who who girds me with strength)
Ni Mungu ndiye kimbilio la unyonge wangu, aha!
(It is God who is my refuge in my weakness)
Naye anaifanya kamilifu njia yangu
(He who makes my path complete)

Ni yeye Bwana aliye nguvu zangu nampenda sana
(He is the Lord with the strength, I love Him)
Ni yeye Jabali langu na boma langu na Mwokozi wangu
(He is my rock, my shelter and my Saviour)
Mungu wangu, mwamba wangu ninayemkimbilia
(My God, My rock whom I run to)
Ngao yangu, na pembe ya wokovu wangu, na ngome yangu
(My shield, the cornerstone of my salvation and my refuge)

(Refrain)

Katika shida zangu nilimwita Bwana “ee Bwana”
(In the midst of my trials I call the Lord “Oh Lord”)
Na kumlalamikia Mungu “ee Mungu”
(I bring my complaints to God “Oh God”)
Akaisikia sauti yangu hekaluni mwake
(He heard my voice in His Temple)
Kilio changu kikaingia masikioni mwake
(My cries reached His ears)

(Refrain)

Bwana alinitendea, sawasawa na haki yangu
(Lord dealt with me according to my rights)
Akanilipa sawasawa na haki yangu
(And He repaid me according to my rights)

(Refrain)

Nitamwita Bwana astahiliye kusifiwa
(I shall call upon the Lord who deserves the praise)
Hivyo nitaokoka na adui zangu
(And thus I shall be saved from my enemies)

(Refrain)
