Mapito (Trials) Lyrics by Gloria Muliro

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Mimi nashangaa, kumbe wakati wa mapito (I’m amazed that it times of trials)
Mambo yote hubadilika (Things change)
Mimi nashangaa, kumbe wakati wa mapito,
Hata rafiki anakutoroka (Even your friend deserts you)
Mimi nashangaa, kumbe wakati wa mapito,
Hauna wa kukutia moyo (There is no one to encourage you)
Kweli nashangaa, kumbe wakati wa mapito,
Mambo yote hubadilika (All things change)?
Hizi miaka zote mpenzi (My Love all this years)
Tumekuwa tu vizuri (We have done well)
Lakini kuanza jana unabadilika (But you’ve changed since yesterday)
Hutaki kuniona, kunikaribia hutaki mpenzi (You don’t want to see me or be close to me)
Pesa, unasemanga kwamba sina pesa (Money. You say I do not have money)
Hizi miaka zote mpenzi (All these years, my love)
Leo ndio umefunguka macho (It is today that your eyes gave been opened)
Umeona kwamba mimi masikini, sinanga pesa (To see that I am poor without money)?

Afadhali uniache jinsi ulivyonipata (It is better to leave me as you found me)
Najua ni mapito tu, bwana ananishughulikia (I know these are trials, The Lord will act on my behalf)
Nasema siwezi, kumuacha mungu wangu (I say I cannot leave my God)
Juu yako mpenzi (Because of You my love)
Mungu wangu anani shughulikia tu (My God acts on my behalf)

Refrain:
Uchungu wa mwana ni mzazi aujuaye (The parent understands the child’s pain)
Mapito yangu, baba wa mbingu anaona (My Heavenly Father is a witness to my trials)
(Repeat)

Jamani, wakati wa mapito (Truly in times of trials)
Usingojee kupigiwa makofi (Do not expect to be applauded)
Bali kupigwa makofi (But to be slapped)
Jamani, wakati wa mapito  (Truly in times of trials)
Usitarajie kutiwa moyo (Do not expect to be encouraged)
Bali kuvunjwa moyo  (But for your heart to be broken)
Wakati wa mapito (In times of trials)
Usitarajia marafiki (Do not expect friendship)
Bali manafiki kibao (But a lot of enmity)
Utakapo pata kesho, wengine wao watakurudia (Tomorrow when You’re blessed, others will return to you)
Watasema wanakujua (They will say they knew you)
Watasema walisimama na wewe, usiwakemee (That they stood with you, do not rebuke them)
Mungu, mungu ndiye analipa (God, God is the one who avenges)

(Refrain)

Atatenda tu, tenda tu, yeye (He will act on your behalf)
Atatenda tu, tenda tu, yeye (He will act on your behalf)

(Sung in Swahili – A Hymn)

Nionapo amani kama shwari (When peace like a river)
Ama nionapo shida (When sorrows like sea billows roll)
Kwa mambo yote umenijulisha Yesu Wangu
(Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say)
Ni salama rohoni mwangu (It is well with my soul)

Refrain:
Ni salama rohoni (It is well with my soul)
Ni salama rohoni mwangu (It is well with my soul)
(Repeat)

[?] wa shetani ananitesa (Though Satan should buffet)
Nitajipa moyo kwani (Let this blest assurance control)
Kristo ameuona unyonge wangu mwanadamu
(That Christ has regarded my helpless estate)
Amekufa kwa roho yangu (And has shed his own blood for my soul)

(Refrain)

Dhambi zangu zote wala si nusu (My sins not in part but the whole)
Na Yesu zimewekwa msalabani (Is nailed to the Cross)
Wala sichukui laana yake (And I bear it no more)
Ni salama rohoni mwangu (It is well with my soul)

(Refrain)

Ee Bwana himiza moyo wangu siku ya kuja
(O Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight)
Ee Parapanda Yako itakapolia (The trumpet shall resound)
Najua siku utakaposhuka sitaogopa
(I know that when You descend, I shall not fear)
Ee ni salama rohoni mwangu (For it is well with my soul)

(Sung in Swahili)

Mungu wangu mbona umeniacha? (My God why have You forsaken me?)
Mbona u mbali na kuugua kwangu, Baba? (Father, Why are You far from my groaning?)
Wote wana-oniona hunicheka (All who see me mock me)
Nakulilia, nakusihi unijibu (I cry unto You, I plead for You to answer me)
(Repeat)

Refrain:
Najua mtetezi yu hai (I know my Redeemer lives)
Kamwe sitakata tamaa (I shall never give up)
Aijua njia niendayo (He knows my path)
Ataniongoza milele (He will guide me forever)
Akisha n’tatatoka dhahabu (After my test, I shall emerge as gold)
Baada ya dhiki nitamwona muumba wangu (After my trials, I shall see my Creator)
(Repeat)

Mashtaka yangu yana uchungu mwingi (My complaint is full of bitterness)
Laiti ningelifika kwa Mungu wangu! (If only I could reach my God!)
Hakika ningenena na Mwenyezi Mungu (Truly I would speak to the Almighty God)
Ningeliweka dua langu mbele yake (I would state my case before Him)

(Refrain)

Hema za wabukonyi zafanikiwa Baba (Father, the tents of the wicked are prosperous)
Wasindao(?) hunawiri Bwana (Lord, those who provoke you are successful)
Mipango ya wenye dhambi nayo hunawiri (The plans of the wicked prosper)
Basi tumaini langu liko wapi? (Where then is my hope?)
(Repeat)

(Refrain)

Even Here Lyrics By Rebekah Dawn ft. Allan Sucre

You have a plan for me
Even though I cannot always understand
Beyond what I can see
I know that I am held within Your Hands
So I will trust in You
And I will lift a song a praise for You
And never ever change
No matter what I am going through

Refrain:
Even here Your Name is Healer
Even here You are still Good
Even here I will exalt You
And lift up praises as I should
For even here, Your Power is greater
I will choose to glorify
The Power of Your wisdom
Though I live or though I die
You ways are perfect, Your Name is Healer
And You are Good

You hold my destiny
So I can look with eyes of faith to what would come
Not moved by what I see
And without ever growing weary I will run
And I will testify
Of Your wisdom that is greater and
And the power is stronger
For You conquered death with Life!

(Refrain)

Oh Your plans for me is good x3
No matter what the days may hold
Your plans for me is good x3
No matter what, You’re in control (Repeat)

(Refrain)

You ways are perfect
Your Name is Healer
And You are Good

Baraka Zangu (My Blessings) Lyrics by Rebecca Soki

(Sung in Swahili)

Mara mingi moyo unakataa (A lot of times my heart fails me)
Hata damu unashindwa kusukuma (It fails even to pump blood)
Nikiwaza mengi nimepitia (When thinking of what I have been through)
Ila imani ndio inanisukuma (It is only faith that pushes me on)

Bado nangoja (I am still waiting) x4

Napata kizunguzungu sana (I am always faint)
Ninapata kizunguzungu (I am faint)
Sometimes maisha inakuwa ngumu sana (Sometimes life is very hard)
Hata nimekosa nguvu (That I become faint)
Lakini nakumbukuka, ahadi zako (But then I remember your promises)
Tena nakumbuka matendo yako (I also remember your work)
Uko mwaminifu ukisema unatenda (You are faithful to do what You promised)
Wewe ni mwaminifu kwa ahadi zako (You are faithful to your promises)

Refrain:
Zile baraka zangu, Bwana (Lord, my blessings promised to me)
Zile baraka zangu (bado nangoja) (I am still waiting for my blessings)
Na Zile baraka zangu, Bwana (Lord, My blessings)
Zile baraka zangu (bado nangoja) (I am still waiting for my blessings)
Na zile ahadi zangu, Bwana (Those promises made to me, Lord)
Na zile ahadi zangu (bado nangoja) (I am still waiting for those promises)
Zile, zile (Those, those)

Shughulika na hali yangu (Look after my health)
Nimelala sakafuni (I have slept on the floor)
Kwenye baridi mateso mengi (There is a lot of suffering in the cold)
Shughulika na hali yangu najua mwokozi (Look after my heart, you know it My Savior)
Uje mapema wala huchelewi (Come quickly, You do not tarry)

Nimehustle haswa (I have hustled hard)
Nimetokwa jasho jasho nikitegea (I have sweated while waiting)
Tena kama godi, tena kama Esta (Just like .?., and just like Esther)
Baba nakutegemea, Mungu nakutegemea (Father I depend on You, God I depend on You)

(Refrain)

Tegemeo la moyo wangu, ni wewe Yesu (Jesus, You are the one my heart depends on)
Tumaini la moyo wangu, ni wewe Kristu (Christ you are the hope of my heart)
Nakungojea (I wait for You) x4

(Refrain)
