Ngazi Jesu ngiyakudinga (Jesus You know that I need You)

(Sung in Xhosa)

Xa bufik’ubumnyama (When darkness falls)
Nobubi emlhabeni (And evil fills the world)
Intliziyo yob’ilindele (My heart awaits)
Intsindiso noluncedo (For redemption and help)
Umasendiwelile (When I cross over)
Ngaphesheya Kwe-Jordane (To Jordan’s other shore)
Ingelosi Yob’ isindibiza (The Angels will call my name)
Etroneni kaYehova (Before Jehova’s Throne)

Refrain:
Ziyosulw’inyembezi (My tears will be wiped away)
Nokufa nezintsizi (Of sorrow and death)
Ayibalwa iminyaka (Neither the years)
Ubusuk’ abukho (Nor the nights will be counted)

Yonk’imihla yemihla (For the rest of my days)
Ndiyoculel’ iNkosi (I will sing of the Lord)
Inyembez’ zosulwe nya (Who wipes away all tears)
Uvalo luphele nya (All fear is gone)
Hla sengifika kuye(When I get before Him)
Yena wongibamba ngesandla (He will hold my hand)
Andomba’ this’ ingubo (And put his cover over me)
Besemina njalo ngihlale naye (And I will forever dwell with Him)

(Refrain)

Ndodana yam edukileyo, (My long lost son)

Abanye baya wela (Others are crossing) x2

Abanye bemile bazum’ izono zabo (Abanye baya wela)

Ndineke inkosi ndiwel’ imfulishotane (Abanye baya wela)

Ndimile apha…
