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 Taita – A Hymn)

Mkiri odu Jesu dakuvoya (Our Savior Jesus, we pray unto You)
Iside wanyonge (For we are weak)
Ngolo redudari gunya kwako (We give our hearts unto You)
Dakulomba kuditesie (We pray that You help us)
Dakulomba kudihoreshe (We pray that You heal us)

Kaung’a yachee wurumwengunyi (Sin came to the world)
Yadiredia makongo (And brought sickness) (Repeat)

Refrain:
Kaung’a ya dinjira sere (Sin removed our safety)
Kaung’a ya dinjira ndigi (Sin weakened our Strength)
Yadiredia kifwa na wasi (And brought trouble and death unto us)
Kaung’a ya di Tanya na Mlungu (Sin separates us from God) (Repeat)

Na mfwano dichamneka (We shall give you an example)
Choka kuka ka kusei barie chongo (If you do not strike the serpent’s head)
Yadaredelwa malemba ni mbao, (Will be assisted by its helper/friend)
Naiya pata mruke na kwenda (He is restored and leaves) (Repeat)

Da agenda kwa waganga (We turn to witchcraft)
Da-funya mafungu malazi (And part with a lot of money)
Da-rigi twa na kuchugwa ngoru (We are cut and given remedies)
Da-liwa Mganga ni Jesu (Forgetting that Jesus is the Healer) (Repeat)

(Refrain)

(Oye) Kaung’a ya di Tanya na Mlungu! (Oh, Sin separates us from Godx3
