Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Sauti yako yasikika juu ya maji (Your voice is heard over the waters)
Sauti yako ni kama radi (Your voice thunders)
Sauti yako Baba, sauti ina Nguvu (Your voice Father, is powerful)
Sauti yako Mwenyezi imejaa fahari (Your voice Almighty, is majestic)
Ukinena ee Mungu, ayala wanajifungua (By your word God, the deer deliver)
Ukinena ee Mungu, misitu unafagia (By Your word God, the forest is wiped)

Refrain:
Repeat: Nguruma eh (Roar)
Baba nguruma ee (Father roar)
We Mungu nguruma eh (God roar)
Baba nguruma eh (Father roar)
(Tupone tuokoke) (That we may see and be saved)
Sauti usikike eh (Let Your voice be heard)

Ukinguruma milima yarushwarushwa kama ndama (When You roar the mountains are laid low)
Ukipaza sauti eh, unatoa moto (On raising Your voice, there is a fire)
Sauti, sauti hiyo, jangwa inatetema (By that voice, the desert shakes)
Umeketi juu ya gharika, mfalme wa milele (You dwell above the flood, Everlasting Father)
Ukinena ee Mungu, ayala wanajifungua (By Your word oh God, the deer delivers)
Ukinena ee Mungu, misitu unafagia (By Your Word oh God, the forests are wiped)

(Refrain)

Bridge:
Repeat: Utukufu kwa Mungu (Glory to God)
Hekaluni tuseme (At the temple let us say)
Mitaani tuimbe (At the neighborhood, let us sing)
Redio na mitandao (On radio and online)
Acha iwe, acha iwe (Let it be, let it be)(Repeat)

(Refrain)

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

(Languages: English, Swahili)

Ninapo lala na amka (When I sleep and when I rise)
I’m not weary
Only you my God, You sustain me
Mbele zako n’ko sawa (Before You I am safe)
You make me stronger
Wanifaa, wanitosha nakuenzi (You fit me, and satisfy me, I adore)

Out of miry clay Lord You picked me
Ukanifinyanga, ukanijenga (You molded me and built me)
Only you can fill my void
Only you can satisfy
Only you I wanna praise
Only you make me stronger
Kwa kinywa changu wacha nikuimbie (From my mouth let me sing for You)

Refrain:
Umenitosha umenitosha, umenitosha Baba (You’ve satisfied me x2, You’ve satisfied me Father)
Umenitosha umenitosha, umeutosha moyo wangu (You’ve satisfied me, You’ve satisfied my heart)

Wateule (The chosen ones)
Tulioweka imani kwa Yule (That have placed our faith on the One)
Aliyetufia (Who died for us)
Wateule (The chosen ones)
Tulioweka imani kwa Yule (That have placed our faith on the One)
Aliyetufia (Who died for us)
Sauti ya shaka, sauti yasema (The voice of doubt says)
Hatutasimama, hatutaendelea (We shall not stand, we shall not succeed)
Na sisi twasema, tutasimama (But we say, we shall stand)
Mungu yuko upande wetu (For the Lord is on our side)
Mkristo simama! (Believer, stand firm!)

Fungua Macho (Open Your eyes)
Uone Jeshi la malaika (And see the army of angels)
Limetuzingira (Surrounding us)
Fungua Macho (Open Your eyes)
Uone Jeshi la malaika (And see the army of angels)
Tutashinda vita (We shall win the war) (Repeat)

Wateule (The chosen ones)
tunaomuishia Yule, anayetupenda (Who live for the One who Loves us)
Wateule (The chosen ones)
tunaomuishia Yule, anayetupenda (Who live for the One who Loves us)
Mawazo ya shaka, mawazo yasema (Thoughts of doubt say)
Hatutashinda, hatutaendelea (We shall not overcome, we shall not advance)
Na sisi twasema, tutashinda (But we say, we shall overcome)
Mungu yuko upande wetu (For God is on our side)
Tutasimama! (We shall stand!)

(Refrain)

(Sung in Swahili)

Nina imani, siku za mateso zitapita (I have faith that troubled days will be over)
Nina imani, siku ya kutoka ghetto, itafika (I have faith that my ghetto days will end)
Nitapata mabawa, nitapaa (I will get wings, I will fly)
Nyota itaangaza, nitang’aa (The star will light, I will shine)
Ninayotamani moyoni, nitapata (I will be granted my heart’s wishes)
No no no no, sitasahau (No no no no, I shall not forget)

Refrain:
Sitasahau, walionishikilia (I shall not forget those who held me)
Sitasahau, walioniombea (I shall not forget those who prayed for me)
Sitasahau, ni Mungu amenitendea (I shall not forget what God has done for me)
Sitasahu, sahau! (I shall not forget) (Repeat)

Nitashare-share (I will share)
Hiyo kidogo sitajiwekea (And shall not keep the little to myself)
Sitalegea-gea kushika mtu mkono (I shall not tarry to hold anyone by the hand)
Na nikiitwa somewhere, kusaidia (If I am called anywhere to help)
Hata kama sina fare, nitatembea (Even if I do not have fare, I shall not walk) (Repeat)

Hadithi (Story) Lyrics by Guardian Angel

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Hadithi, Hadithi Njoo… (Story, Story come)

Kuna bwana mmoja wa kichaa (There was once a madman)
Alipenda kuomba chakula (Who liked to beg for food)
Kwa mama fulani, mama fulani (From a certain mother, a certain mother)
Siku moja yule mama alipanga amtilie sumu (One day the mother planned to poison him)
Yule wazimu akila afe, aondoke kabisa (The mad man to die, and disappear for good)
Kule njiani alipatana na watoto wa yule mama (On his way, he met the mother’s children)
Akawagawanyia, kile chakula (He divided the food among them)

Watoto wake wakala wakafa (Those children ate and died)
Yule wazimu akabaki mzima (The mad man was left alive)
Ishara kwamba unayoyatenda (A sign that what you do)
Unajitendea mwenyewe (You do for yourself) (Repeat)

Refrain:
Ukitenda mema (When you do good)
Unajitendea mwenyewe (You do it for yourself)
Ukitenda maovu (When you do evil)
Unajitendea mwenyewe (You do it for yourself) (Repeat)

Salimia watu, pesa huisha, gari hupata puncture (Greet people, Money and cars are fleeting)
Hivi ni vitu vya dunia (This are things of the world)
Hichi kidole nacho wanyoshea watu (This finger that I point at people)
Vingine vinne ninajinyoshea mwenyewe (There are four that I point at myself)
Hichi kidole nacho wanyoshea watu (This finger that I point at people)
Vingine vinne ninajinyoshea mwenyewe (There are four that I point at myself)

Ninaozongumza nao, juu ya wenzangu (The ones talk about my fellow men)
Wanazungumza nao, juu yangu mimi (They talk to them about me) (Repeat)

Tenda mema – ondoka uende (Do good, and leave)
A’lo na chuki na wewe mpende (The one with hate, love them instead)
Kwa sababu unayoyatenda (Because what you do)
Unajitendea mwenye (You do it for yourself) (Repeat)

(Refrain)
