Nitembee na wewe (To Walk With You) Lyrics by Size 8 Reborn

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Niwe na pesa na mali (To have money and wealth)
Ya kifahari magari (And fancy cars)
Bila wewe, kila kitu ni bure (Without You, everything is meaningless)
Nijulikane mtaani (To be known in the area)
Toka Nairobi hadi pwani (From Nairobi to the coast)
Bila wewe, kila kitu ni bure (Without You, everything is meaningless)

Bridge:
Wewe na mimi, tuwe kitu kimoja (You and me, to be one)
Wewe na mimi, ah, tembee pamoja (You and me to walk together)
Wewe na mimi, tuwe kitu kimoja (You and me to be one)
Wewe na mimi, zaidi ya yote (You and me, above all)

Refrain:
Nitembee na wewe (To walk with You) x3
Kila siku ya maisha yangu (All the days of my life)
Nitembee na wewe (To walk with You) x3

Sina budi kukwita Daddy (I have to call you Daddy)
Sina budi kukwita (I have to call You)
Popote ninapoendaga (Wherever I go)
Chochochote ninachotendaga (In whatever I do)
Unatenda nami (You do it with me)
Uwepo wako mi napendaga (I love Your Presence)
Unaenda nami (You go with me)

(Bridge + Refrain)

What does it profit a man
To gain the whole world but lose his soul?
Give your life to Jesus today
Bila Yesu, haiwezi (Without Jesus, it is impossible)

Usiku Mtakatifu (O Holy Night) Lyrics by Reuben Kigame and Gloria Muliro

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili – A Hymn)See notes below

Usiku mtakatifu, nyota zameremermeta
(Oh Holy night, the stars are brightly shining)
Ni usiku wa kuzawa mwokozi
(It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth)
Dunia yote, kwa dhambi ilizama
(Long lay the world in sin and error pining)
Hadi Yesu kaja kutuokoa
(Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth)
Tunaiingia ya kusisimua kote
(A thrill of hope – the weary world rejoices)
Utukufu wake wachomoza

Tumsujudu, sikia malaika
(Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angel voices)
Usiku mkuu, wa kuzaliwa Yesu Kristo
(O night divine, O night when Christ was born)
Usiku mkuu, usiku mtakatifu
(O night, O holy night, O night divine!)

Kweli ametufunza sote kupendana
(Truly He taught us to love one another)
Injili yake ni amani (His gospel is peace)
Minyororo yote ya utumwa imevunjwa
(Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother)
Kwa jina lake tutapata uhuru
(And in His name all oppression shall cease)
Tenzi tamu wa pamoja twainua
(Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we)
Tumsifu kwa roho zetu zote
(Let all within us praise His holy name)
Yesu ni Bwana, milele tumsifu
(Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever)
Tutangaze uweza na utukufu wake
(His Power and Glory evermore proclaim)
Tutangaze uweza na utukufu wake
(His Power and Glory evermore proclaim)

Tumsujudu, sikia malaika
(Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angel voices)
Usiku mkuu, wa kuzaliwa Yesu Kristo
(O night divine, O night when Christ was born)
Usiku mkuu, usiku mtakatifu
(O night, O holy night, O night divine!)

(Notes: The Swahili lyrics do not translate completely to the h ones, but the singers wanted to convey meaningful translation of the Hymn in Swahili – this is why we have the original English lyrics instead of re-translating the Swahili ones back to English)

Ningoze upendavyo (Lead me as You will)
