(Sung in Gikuyu – A Hymn)

Ũnyite na guoko, njikarage nawe
(Hold me safe in your hands, keep me safe by Your side)
Ndĩkuuĩire mũtĩ wakwa wa kwambĩrwo
(As I bear my own cross for crucifying my flesh)
Njikarage nawe, mathĩnainĩ mothe
(Keep me safe with You, through life’s storms)
Nĩgetha ũndeithie kũhotana
(So that I emerge victorious)

Refrain:
Mwathani nĩnjũĩ ndũkandiga
(Lord I know You never forsake me)
Na nĩngwenda kuona, riri wa Igũrũ
(And I desire to see, Your heavenly glory)
Ũhithe o harĩa, thũ ĩtangĩnyona
(Hide me safely from the enemy’s sight)
Ũngĩona oru ũhithe
(Keep me safe till the storm passes by)

Naniĩ nĩnjũĩ ndirĩ hinya Mwathani
(Lord I know that I do not have the strength to bear)
Wa gwĩtirĩrĩria, nditi cia Caitani
(The pressures of Satan’)
Na thuti cia mwĩrĩ, a wendo wa arata
(The cravings of the flesh, and love of friends)
Na mĩago ya thĩ ino ĩtarĩ a bata
(And worldly pleasures that lead to death)

(Refrain)

Ndarĩkia gũkinya, mũciĩ ũcio wa Igũrũ
(When I finally arrive, at my heavenly home)
Caitani ndagacoka gũũthĩnia rĩngĩ
(Satan will never trouble my spirit)
Baba nĩakahĩmbĩria na moko merĩ
(My father will embrace me)
Na ahurũkie wendoinĩ wake
(And cause me to rest forever in his Love)

(Refrain)

(Sung in Swahili/Sheng/Kamba/Kikuyu)

Asanti kwa pendo ( Thank you for the Love)
Chakula na cha kulalia ( For sustenance and where to lay our heads)
Wewe ni Upendo ( You are Love)
Na Seed/Sailors wamekubalia (And Seed/Sailors have accepted it ) (Repeat)

Refrain:
Tukikosea, tufinyana finya-finyange (When we sin, mould and re-mould us )
Tukipotea, tureke-rekebishange ( When we lose our way, change and re-change us)
Tukiropokwa, tufungafunga-fungange ( When we do not watch over our words, counsel us)
Tukinyanyaswa, tupiga piga-ganiange ( When we are abused, fight for us)
Piganiange, piganiange (Fight for us, fight for us)
Piganiange, piganiange (Fight for us, fight for us)

Oh nakupenda bana jo (Oh I love You So)
Zile ngori umenitoa kwa maisha yangu ( The troubles that you have removed from my life)
Sitaki hata doh ( I do not even need money)
We ndio daddy oh yo (You are the father) (Repeat)

Nani alisema wagenge hawawezi piga injili ifike? ( Who said the Genges can’t spread the gospel?)
Na ni nani alisema injili tu ni yake peke yake? ( Who said the gospel is reserved only to them?)
Kwata waya, nenga ngita — njeta wavita (Twing twing) ( Play the instrument, the guitar, make it sing “twing, twing”)
Kwata waya, nenga ngita — njeta wavita (Twing twing) ( Play the instrument, the guitar, make it sing “twing, twing”)

Niko high juu ya neno, wa-lai ju ya neno x4 (I am high on the word, because of the Word )

E muoyo, Jesu e muoyo (He is alive, Jesus is alive)
Nikio ndiraina ni tondu e muoyo ( I sing because He is alive) (Repeat)

Pedi pedi pedi wa mahoya (I was a drug peddler..)
Leo ni kusifu tu na kuhoya (Today I am praising and worshiping)
Na hii journey imekuwa tu mahoya (And this journey has become prayerful)
Nakumbuka nikikula U-Fresh ( I remember .?.)
Na madunya za kuhoya ( … )
Wakakaza nikakazua na mahoya (They blocked me, but I opened a path through prayer)
Niko happy, niko happy ( I am happy, I am happy)
Niko happy (I am happy) in Jesus Mighty name
Itadai, itadai, itadai gutongoria ainge ( … lead ..)
Ni Messiah, ni Messiah, ni Messiah (It is the Messiah)

(Refrain)

Sailors tumejitolea tutume Nyasaye (Sailors have resolved, send us God)
Walai ututume injili ibambe ( Use us, that we might spread the gospel)
Ibambe kubamba ( That it might spread and overwhelm)
Toka zile enzi za “Jesu ni Mwathani” ( From the time of “Jesus is Lord”)
Masilver ni nyendete mwathani ( Masilver are the … Lord)
Na ndire ndahitia riathani x3 ( …)

(Refrain)

Leave a comment


(Languages: Gĩkũyũ, Swahili)

Gikuo kia Jesu, na kũgirĩka (The death of Jesus and His Great pain)
Hau Kalivary; nĩcingenangia (At Calvary, makes me rejoice)
Cindĩrikanagia, ndirĩ na thirĩ (For it always reminds me that I am free)
Naũria warĩho nĩandĩ hĩĩre (And that He paid my debts)

Akahukumiwa, kama mwenye dhambi (He was condemned, like a sinner)
Akipigania uhai wangu (While He was fighting on my behalf)
Kadharauliwa , na kuchukiwa (He was despised and rejected)
Ili nirudishiwe shamba la Edeni (That I may be restored in the Garden of Eden)

Refrain:
Ndi mugure, Ndi mugure, Ndi mugure!
(I am Redeemed, I am Redeemed, I am Redeemed!)
Na thakame ya Jesu (By the Blood of Jesus) (Repeat)

Alilia, kwa uchungu mwingi (He cried in pain)
“Eloi! Eloi! Lamasabakithani”
Akimuuliza, “Baba yangu (Asking, “My Father)
Mbona mimi ukaniacha pweke?” (Why have You forsaken me?”)

Wendo ta ucio, igereha nake (How can I repay such kind of love?)
Woi negetha, ningũkenie? (In order to make you Happy?)
Nima gũtire, ũgehotire (For none else could have)
Kuirutĩra, ninguohonoke (Sacrificed themselves for me)

(Refrain)

Hau uhoro ũcio, ngenda gũtũra (As for me, I choose to dwell)
Ngwaku Ngai, ona hatari muoyo (in the house of the Lord, forever)
Ndeithia kũrũmia, mawatho maku (Help me Lord, to hold on tight to Your decrees)
Nĩgetha ndikauranuo na ĩtũra rieru (That I might not miss out i your Kingdom)

‘saidie kuishi, kwa mapenzi yako (Help me to live in Your will)
Nisaidie, kuushinda huu mwili (Help me to conquer the flesh)
Niwe natamani, neno lako (That I should desire Your Word)
Na hatimaye, nipate uzima (And eventually,  receive eternal life)

(Refrain)
