Mimi ni wa Juu (I Belong on High) Lyrics by Joel Lwaga

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Kuna wakati wa giza (There are times of darkness)
Mbele sioni, najiuliza (I cannot see ahead, I ask myself)
“Mbona kama hizi shida (“Why do these problems)
Zimekawia kuisha?” (Have no end?”)
Katikati ya maswali (In the midst of my questions)
Nasikia sauti ndani (I hear an inner voice)
Imebeba ujasiri (With boldness)
Ikiniita, kanikiri (Calling me to declare)
Nikisema (To say)

Refrain:
Mimi ni wa juu (I belong on High)
Mimi ni wa juu (I am above)
Mimi ni wa juu (I belong on High)
Juu sana (Highly above)

Sitafsiriwi kwa haya (I am not defined by these)
Macho zina magumu (The eyes see trouble)
Mimi ni mshindi tu (I am a conqueror)
Kamusi ndiye Mungu (God is the translator/defines me)
Haijalishi ni giza (No matter the darkness)
Ye ni nuru yangu (He is my Light)
Nitashinda hivi (I shall win this way)
Na yote yatapita (And all shall pass away)

Tasimama tena! (I shall stand again)
Tainuka tena! (I will rise again)
Mimi ni wa juu tu! (For I belong on high)
Mimi ni wa juu tu! (I belong on High) (Repeat)

(Refrain)

Repeat: Refrain
Ni wa juu sana (I belong on high)
Juu zaidi ya mawingu (High above the cloudds)
NImeketishwa juu sana (I have been seated on high)
Kwenye milele tu (Where forever is)
Nawaza yaliyo juu (I think heavenly thoughts)

Nawaza Yaliyo (Juu) (I think heavenly thoughts)
Nawaza Yaliyo (Juu) (I think heavenly thoughts)
Nawaza Yaliyo (Juu) (I think heavenly thoughts)
Juu sana (High above) (Repeat)

Repeat: Refrain
Haijalishi mazingira (No matter the circumstances)
NInapitia nini (Whatever I’m going through)
Yote yatapita (All shall pass away)
Mimi nitashinda tu (I shall be victorious)

Sitafsiriwi kwa haya (I am not defined by these)
Macho zina magumu(The eyes see trouble)
Mimi ni mshindi tu(I am a conqueror)
Kamusi ndiye Mungu (God is the translator/defines me)

(Sung in Swahili)

Refrain:
Nikitembea, naona (When I walk, I see)
Baraka, naona (The blessings, I see)
Kupona, naona (The healing, I see)
Umeshinda Yesu (That Jesus You are victorious)

Umefanya mengi yaliyo nje ya fahamu zetu
(You have done more than our understanding)
Ya kushindwa mtu, ukautwaa utukufu mkuu
(Defeating humans, You took the highest Glory)
Si wa mashaka, si wasiwasi
(You are not of doubt, of worry)
Ukishatenda, inabaki kuwa ushuhuda mkuu
(What You do, remains the greatest testimony)

Yale umefanya, yamebadilisha na majina yetu
(What You have done has renamed us)
Toka kutekwa, umeweka kicheko
(You have placed joy in place of bondage)
Waganga walitutesa, hawakuweza kutuponya
(The witchdoctors tortured us, they could not heal us)
Daktari alishasema, ya kwamba imeshindikana
(The doctor said, that it was a failure)
Ila kwa damu ya thamani ya Yesu, umeturejesha
(But by the precious blood of Jesus, You have restored us)
Na nimeona, oh nimeona, umeshinda
(And I have seen, Oh, I have witnessed Your victory)

(Refrain)

Yesu, Yesu, Yesu (Jesus, Jesus, Jesus)
Jina lako ni tamu (Your Name is sweet)
Hata kwa magumu (Even in difficulties)
Bado jina ni tamu (Your Name remains sweet)

Repeat: Yesu (Jesus)
Liandoa magonjwa (It removes sickness)
Kiboko ya uchawi (The rod of witchcraft)
Fufua na wafu (Raises the dead)
Tetemesha (Causes trembling)
Linapasua miamba (It breaks rocks)
Vunja ngome kuzimu (Breaks the stronghold of hell)
Tuna ujasiri (We have courage)
Wewe ni Mungu (You are God)

Repeat: Mwanaume (Son of Man)
Bahari ni kimya (The seas are still)
Maana yeye ni mfale (For He is the King)
Dunia nzima yatii (The whole world submits)
Hakuna wa ku.. (There is no one to…)
Anatawala! (He reigns!)
Jemedari wa vita (The General of war)
Yeye, yeye (He is, He is)
Ni simba wa Yuda (He is the Lion of Judah)

Yesu we x? (Oh, Jesus)

(Refrain)

Oh Asante (Oh thank You)
Kupona, kupona (Salvation, salvation)
Maana umeshinda yesu (For Jesus, You are victorious)

Kwa macho nimeona watu wakitendewa miujiza
(I have witnessed miracles done on people)
Kwa macho nimeona watu wakifunguliwa vifungo
(I have witnessed people’s bondage being broken)
(Repeat)

Waganga walitutesa, hawakuweza kutuponya
(The witchdoctors tortured us, they could not heal us)
Daktari alishasema, ya kwamba imeshindikana
(The doctor said, that it was a failure)
You are number one
Sina Mwingine (I have no other)

Wala sihitaji kusimuliwa matendo yako makuu
(I do not need to be told of Your Great deeds)
Sihitaji kuelezewa, maana naona
(I do not need to be told, for I see)
(Repeat)

I love You…
Kupona, kupona (Healing, healing)
Maana umeshinda yesu (For Jesus You are victorious)

Asante Bwana (Thank You Lord) Lyrics by Angel Magoti

(Languages: English, Swahili)

As the world looks upon me, as I struggle alone
They say I have nothing, but they are so wrong
In my heart, I’m rejoicing: How I wish they could see!
Thank You Lord, for Your blessings on me

There’s a roof up above me: I have a good place to sleep
There’s food on my table, shoes on my feet
You gave me Your Love Lord, and a fine family
Thank You Lord, For Your blessings on me

Najua mimi si tajiri, na nguo zangu sio mpya
(I know I am not rich, and my clothes are not new)
Sina pesa nyingi sana, lakini nina Yesu
(I do not have a lot of money, but I have Jesus)
Hili ndilo la muhimu, japo hawatatambua
(This is what is important, but they don’t know this yet)
Asante Bwana, kwa mibaraka yako
(Thank you Lord, for Your Blessings)

Nina sehemu nzuri ya kuishi, na kulala vizuri
(I have a good space to live, and to sleep well)
Chakula mezani kwangu, na viatu miguuni
(There is food on my table, and shoes on my feet)
Umenipa uzima, na familia nzuri
(You have granted me life and a good family)
Asante Bwana, kwa mibaraka yako
(Thank you Lord, for Your Blessings)

Umenipa uzima, na familia nzuri
(You have granted me life and a good family)
Asante Bwana, kwa mibaraka yako
(Thank you Lord, for Your Blessings)

Sikuachi Tena (I Won’t Leave You Again) Lyrics by Zabron Singers

(Sung in Swahili)

Tunaishi kwa nguvu ya Mungu, Ye ndo katuweka hapa
(We live by God’s Power, He placed us here)
Kila hatua tunapitia, ye ndiye mlinzi wetu
(He guards all the steps we take)
Asubuhi ifikapo, hujua siku itaenda vipi
(When morning comes, he knows how the day will go)
Je n’tavuka salama, mchana jioni hata usiku
(Will I cross safely the, morning, evening and night?)
Kwa dakika,sekunde hujua siku itaenda vipi
(By minutes and seconds, he knows how the day will go)
Kupata na kokosa, ajua mimi n’tapata nini
(Receiving and Losing, He knows what I will get)
Kulala, kuamka, ajua mi n’taamka vipi
(Sleeping, and rising, he knows how I will wake)
Maisha yetu yote, Mungu ndiye anazo siri zetu
(The Lord knows the secret of all our lives)

Refrain:
We ni Mungu wangu, sikuachi tena
(You are my God, I will not leave You again)
Nikuwepo leo ni rehema zako zaniwezesha
(Me being here today, is through Your Mercies)
Sina haki mimi, kujisifu tena
(I do not have the right to boast of myself)
Kwani bila wewe hakika mimi singekuwa hivi
(For Without You, truly I would not be this way) (Repeat)

Mwanga wangu wa njia na nyota katika maisha yangu
(The Light to my path and the Star in my life)
Ye ni Mungu wa nuru, ushindi hata vitu vyote vyake
(He is the God of light, victory and all things are His)
Upatacho shukuru, ni Mungu ndiye kakuweka hapo
(Be thankful for what you get, it is God who placed you there)
Usisahau kumtumikia bado ungali hai
(Do not forget to serve Him, while you are still alive)

Kumbuka kuna siku utadaiwa kwa matendo yako
(Remember there is a day you will give account for your actions)
Iwe jema, kwa baya, watu pia umewatenda vipi?
(For good or for ill, How have you treated others?)
Je wazitumiaje baraka ulizopewa na Mungu?
(How are you using the blessings you were given by God?)
Suluhisho pekee, ni Mungu tumpe maisha yetu
(The only solution, is to give God our lives)

(Refrain)
