Mungu Pekee (Only God) Lyrics by Nyashinski

1 Comment



(Sung in Swahili/Sheng)

Sijui Ka n’taona kesho (I don’t know if I’ll see tomorrow)
Ka ningali na uwezo wa kuifanya (But if I have the ability to work)
N’taifanya hadi mwisho (I shall toil until the end)
Mwambieni huyo devo, simwogopi shetani (Tell the devil, I’m not afraid of Satan)
Sir God yuko nami hadi kifo (The Lord is with me until death)
Ka n’taona kesho (If I’ll see tomorrow)
Nipe nguvu na uwezo wa kijana (Give me the ability of youth)
na akili za mzee (And the wisdom of old age)
Daima ni we, (Forever it is you,)
imara wasiniangushe (solid – that I may not be felled)

Naona saa, (I see the time,)
Kila siku ni zawadi toka Maulana (Everyday is a gift from God)
So haja gani ushike tama mama (So why the sad face, ma?)
Majaribu huisha ooh yaa ee (Trials come to an end)
Na hata ka, (And even when…)
Maadui zangu watashikana nao njama (My enemies conspire against me)
siwaogopi nasimama ma (I am not afraid, I stand firm)
Ya kiama yao yaja eeh (Their judgement day is coming)

Hio ndio pace nasonga nayo (The pace I’m moving with)
Wanashangaa hakuna stress nakuanga nayo (They’re surprised to see me stress-free)
Naishi ka’ sina case mahakamani (I live as though I have neither cases against me)
Au deni za majirani (Nor my neighbors debts)
N’ko Fresh njee na ndani, oh yaa eee (I am fresh inside and out)

Refrain:
Naa mwogopa Mungu Pekee (I fear only God)
Wanadam’ ‘kija kuntafash (When men conspire against me)
Naomba Mungu N’tetee (Lord defend me)
Maneno yao yasiniumize (That their words would not wound me)
‘Nfanye sugu wewe (Make me strong)
Wakitry kun’tisha naomba (When they try to threaten me,)
Nisitetemeke (I pray that I may not be shaken)
I know you love me, know you love me
So I Don’t fear Nobody But You
I know you love me know you love me
Nisitetemeke (That I may not be shaken) (Repeat)

Siamini joh ju vile naishi life (I don’t believe it because the way I live)
Ni ngumu kuamini hii si ndoto (Is hard to believe that this is not a dream)
Sijui kesho vile itakaa (I don’t know about tomorrow)
kwa hivyo leo nitaifanya (So today I will work)
ka kidogo hua hairidhishi roho (As though a little does not satisfy me)
Yani sana, tena sana (That is…)
Hata wale wanan’chukia (Even those who hate me)
wananiheshimu bruh mi si kodogo (Respect me, I am not trivial)
Sibabaiki nikis’kia mkiongea (I do not worry when I hear you talk)
Nazidi kuwapa mi kisogo, (I continue giving you my back)
na kama saa sis’mami (And like time, I do not pause)
S’taki life iniwache mataani mtaani (I do not want life to overwhelm me)
Mwenyezi n’chungie familia yangu (Lord take care of my family)
Na pia Za wale wote sauti yangu wanais’kia (And of those who listen to my voice)
Tupe afya nzuri, na maisha matamu (Grant us good health, and enjoyable life)
Barabara zetu zinyooke (Our paths to be straightened)
Waone Mfalme ni wewe (That others will see you are the King)
Wa kupewa shangwe ni wewe (You are the One deserving of Praise)
Wa kupewa shagwe ni wewe (You are the One deserving of Praise)

(Refrain)

Bridge:
I pray we: me and my people we never die
Say we live forever and forever we multiply
And wherever we go…
Ni nini wanaweza nishow (There is nothing they can show me)
hata ka sina kitu (Even if I had nothing)
Uko na mimi kila siku (You are by my side every day)
Kila siku, Wewe Pekee (Every day, Only You)

(Refrain)

Huyu Yesu (This Jesus) Lyrics by Mercy Masika and Angel Bernard

1 Comment



(Sung in Swahili)

Huyu Yesu si sanamu (This Jesus is not a statue)
Si mwanadamu, adanganye (Not human, that He should lie)
Ahadi zake zote kweli (His promises are all yes)
Na amina nimemwona (and Amen; I have seen Him)

Akisema ndio, hakuna wa kumpinga (When He says Yes, no one can oppose Him)
Akikubariki, hakuna wa kunyang’anya (When He blesses You, no one can rescind it)
Akikuahidi, kwa wakati atimiza (What He promises, He will fulfill in time)
Anavyokuita, ndivyo ulivyo (When He calls, that is how You are)

Refrain
Huyu Yesu, huyu Yesu (This Jesus x2)
si hadithi, mwambie (Is not fake, tell Him)

Umetangaziwa nini? (What have you been told?)
Umetabiriwa nini? (What has been prophesied about you?)
Maishani mwako, mwambie (About your life, tell him)
Unaumizwa na nini? (What hurts you;)
Je, una hofu gani? (What makes you afraid,)
Maishani mwako, mwambie (About your life? Tell Him)

Verse 2, Refrain

Zawadi gani mimi (What gift from me)
Nitamtolea Bwana wangu (That I can I give to my Lord)
Ila roho yangu tu (Except for my heart?) (Repeat)

Refrain:
Pokea sifa hizi Bwana (Lord receive these praises)
Tena uzibariki Bwana (And Bless them Lord)
Uzijaze baraka zako (Fill them with your Blessings)
Pia na roho yangu (And my spirit as well) (Repeat)

Mimi nitoe nini (What can I give)
Ambacho cha thamani kwako (That is of value to You)
Ila Roho yangu tu (Except for my heart?) (Repeat)

Kutembea Nawe (To Walk With You) Lyrics by Rebekah Dawn

5 Comments


(Sung in Swahili)

Nikipoteza njia (If ever I should lose my way)
Kwa safari nimechagua (In this journey I have chosen)
Nisipokuwa na nguvu (If I don’t have any strength)
Niite, niite (Call to me, call to me)

Niongoze kwa neema (Lead me with Grace)
Nifunze kwa upole wako (Teach me with your gentleness)
Hata nikikosea (Even if I should make a mistake)
Nisaidie, nisaidie (Help me, help me)

Refrain:
Natamani kutembea nawe (I desire to walk with you)
Natamani kutembea nawe (I desire to walk with you)
Natamani kutembea nawe (I desire to walk with you)
Niongoze, niongoze (Lead me)

Sielewi njia hii (I’m not familiar with this path)
Nd’o maana nakuhitaji (That is why I need You)
Nakutegemea wewe (I depend on You)
Enda nami, enda nami (Go with me, go with me)

Nashindwa kukupa vyote (It’s hard to give You everything)
Hata hivyo nitaamini (Even so I’ll believe)
Kwani najua mwishowe (For I know at the end)
Kuna raha, kuna raha (There is joy, there is joy!)

(Refrain)
