Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Refrain:
Umeinuliwa juu, Umeinuliwa juu (You are lifted Up, You are lifted up)
Umeinuliwa, umeinuliwa (You are lifted, You are lifted)
Umeinuliwa juu (You are lifted up)
Umeinuliwa, umeinuliwa (You are lifted, You are lifted)
Umeinuliwa juu, Umeinuliwa juu (You are lifted Up, You are lifted up)
Umeinuliwa, umeinuliwa (You are lifted, You are lifted)
Umeinuliwa juu (You are lifted up)

Kama yule nyoka wa shamba alivyoinuliwa (Like the snake in the garden was lifted)
Msalabani ukainuliwa, Juu ya ngome na mamlaka (You were lifted on the cross, over all strongholds and authorities)
Wote wanakutazama, Wanapata tumaini (All who look at You, receive hope)
Tunakuinua Bwana, Umeinuliwa juu (We lift You Lord, You are lifted high)

(Refrain)

Kumbukeni mwizi, msalabani aliomba (Remember the thief who prayed at the cross)
Ee Yesu nikumbuke, utakapofika paradiso (“Oh Jesus remember me  in Paradise”)
Akatubebea huzuni, Mateso hata magonjwa yetu (He carried our sorrow, our persecution and our sicknesses)
Juu ya mafalme na mamlaka, Umeinuliwa juu (Over all kingdoms and powers, You are lifted high)

(Refrain)

Tumeketi nawe, katika mkono wa kulia (We sit on Your right Hand)
Pamoja naye Baba yangu, na roho mtakatifu (Together with my Father and the Holy Spirit)
Naungana na Makerubi, na mesarafi nikisema (Joining with the Cherubim and the Seraphim sating)
Uhimidiwe, uinuliwe, uliyenilipia gharama yote (Be blessed, be lifted up, You who paid all my debts)

(Refrain)

Zaidi ya wafalme, zaidi ya miungu yote (More than kingdoms, more than other gods)
Umetukuka umesifika, ee Mungu umeinuliwa (You are exalted and praised, Oh God You are lifted high)
Nami leo nakuinua, nainua mikono yangu (I lift You up today, I lift my hands)
Ndio maana nakuimbia, ee Umeinuliwa juu (That is why I sing to You, Oh You have been lifted high)

(Refrain)

Nasubiri (I’m Waiting) Lyrics by Peter Blessing

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Kutwa nzima imepita (A whole day has gone by)
Nikiwa sina hata cha mfukoni (With nothing in my pocket)
Naumia hakika (I hurt)
Kwani hata marafiki hao siwaoni (For I do not see my friends)
Kwenye wingu la giza (In this cloud of darkness)
Sijaoata hata faraja tumboni (I do not had anything to it)
Koroboi ndio stima (A tin lamp is my source of light)
Ninamwuliza yule unayotoka moyoni (I look to the one who owns my heart)

Maisha haya kizunguzungu (This life is disorienting)
Ni wapi tena, sina pa kutorokea (I do not have a place to hide)
Kwenye giza sioni nuru,(In the darkness I do not see the light)
Ni nini chanzo, nabaki nikijiendela (The source of my struggles)

Bridge:
Kama namwona mamangu (I see my mother)
Uchochole ndo wimbo na ndo kikwazo (Poverty is a song and an obstacle)
Ni pekee yangu (I am all alone)
Kwa hakika naangaziwa sasa (Truly I am exposed)
Machozi ndo yangu (The tears are mine)
Hata kunivika cha chini ndo langu pato (My income is in menial labor)
Eh Mola wangu (Oh, my God)

Refrain:
Eh, Mwenyezi mimi, mwenyezi (Oh Almighty, Almighty)
Nasubiri bado, mwenyezi (I am still waiting, Almighty) x3
Nangoja bado, mwenyezi (I am still waiting, Almighty)
Nasubiri bado, mwenyezi (I am still waiting, Almighty) x3
Nangoja kwako, mwenyezi (I await You Almighty)

Mbona mawazo yangu (Why is it than my thoughts)
Ndo hivyo katu sichoki kufikiria? (Do not settle?)
Masikini moyo wangu (My poor heart)
Tena mzigo wangu mzito (Carrying a heavy burden)
Sina hata wakunisaidia (Without anyone to help me)
Naja kwako Mola wangu (I come before You my God)

Maumivu yangu yalokolea (My pains that are unending)
Toka zama sichoki kusota (From years before I have been poor)
Dili zangu zakungojea (Waiting for ‘deals’ to come to fruition)
Mara napata, saa ingine nakosa (Sometimes I’m successful, sometimes I fail)
Nyumbani nategemea (I am looked upon at home)
Wamechoka wa kunikopesha (My creditors have tired of me)
Wazidi niombee wasikate tamaa (May they continue praying for me, not to give up)

Kama kufunga so mwanzo ni mtindo (Fasting is not a one-day thing, its my habit)
Mpaka nashindwa nini ndo chanzo (Until I cannot see the source of my troubles)
Ndo maana nimeandika huu wimbo (That is why I write this song)
Matatizo yasokosa likizo (Troubles that do not end)
Kilio ndio wangu mtindo (My tears a constant present)
Ni maji yamefika kwa shingo (I’m drowning)

(Bridge + Refrain)

Kupambana kidumu, sichoki (But I will not tire of struggling)
Sala zangu nitume, sichoki (I will not be tired of praying)
Siwasikizi wengine, sichoki (I will not be tired of listening to others)
Ipo siku n’tapata (For my day will come)

(Sung in Swahili)

Nguvu, Nguvu, Nguvu zako, nyingi siwezi eleza
(I cannot explain Your Great Power)
Na kumbu kumbu kumbu lako (Your throughts)
Akili ya binadamu haiwezi elewa (Cannot be understood by man)
Leo watembea juu ya maji (Today You walk on water)
Kesho unatawanyisha maji (Tomorrow You divide the waters)
So I will tell it, tell it, tell it somebody
About You

Ukinena mapepo yatoweka, mapepo yatoweka
(When you speak, demons flee, demons flee)
Ukinena viwete wajiweza, viwete wajiweza
(When You speak, the lame walk, the lame walk)
Ukinena a-a-a (When You speak)

Power Power terminator (Power, power)
Power power terminator (Your Power Power)
Power Power terminator (Power, Power)
Power All over me
Your power power (Repeat)

Power, Power, take control, take control
Shower, shower, bless my soul, bless my soul
Vile unanibembeleza, unanibembeleza
(The way You console me, You console me)
Neno lako chakula kwenye meza, chakula kwenye meza
(Your Word is like food on the table)

Ukinena mapepo yatoweka, mapepo yatoweka
(When you speak, demons flee, demons flee)
Ukinena viwete wajiweza, viwete wajiweza
(When You speak, the lame walk, the lame walk)
Ukinena a-a-a (When You speak)

Power power terminator (Power, power) x2
Power power terminator (Your Power Power)
Kwangu wewe ni generator (To me You are a generator) x2
The main operator
Power all over me
