Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Uzuri ni kwamba, Mungu hapokei rushwa x2
(The good news is that God cannot be bribed)
Angepewa mabilioni, tungetupwa mbali sana x2
(If that was so and he was given billions, we would have been abandoned)
(Repeat)

Na wengine tuna damu mbaya, mabifu kama yote
(Others have bad blood, looking for quarrels)
Mtu hujamkosea, anatamani ufe
(You have not wronged them, but they wish death on you)
Wengine bwana we, tulipewaga sura
(And others, were given looks)
Mtu akikukuona, akalinganisha hufanani
(Someone looks at you, and they compare you with others)
Wewe unadhani angepewa oxygene
(What do you think – if they were given oxygen)
Yangu angeminya, angeminya — nifie mbali
(My oxygen – they would have squeezed it, that I died)
Wewe unadhani angepewa kesho yako wee
(What do you think, if they were given your tomorrow)
Kwanza angefinya, angefinya — ufie mbali
(They would have squeezed it so that you died)

Pre-Refrain:
Ila mungu wee, hajui kukosea (But God does not wrong us)
Ametupa thamani, tulioitwa vikaragosi
(He has given us worth, us who are called cartoons)
Ila mungu wee, mwingi wa huruma
(For God is full of mercy)
Ametupa vicheko, vicheko bila manoti
(He has given us joy, joy without payment)

(Refrain)

Mfano jitu lipate lama za Laiza: lingetuchakaza vibaya
(For example, if someone gets Laiza’s fortune: they would have hurt us)
Au lipate kama za Dangote, Lipewe kuamua Kesho yako eeh
(Or they would be fortunate as Dangote, to judge your tomorrow)
Wengine, Baba zetu walala hoi (For some of us, our Fathers are needy)
Wengine, mama zetu hohehahe (For some of us, our mothers are poor)
Wengine, familia zetu choka mbaya (For some of us, our families are destitute)
Wengine, ndio kabisa mayatima (For some of us, we are complete orphans)
Hakuna anayetujua wala hatuna connection (There would be no one to give us connections)
Kusema sababu ni elimu mbona wasomi kibao ni jobless?
(Saying that it is because of lack of education, why are degree holders jobless?)
Tumewekwa Mahali kwa neema ya Mungu (We have been placed in the place of God’s Grace)
Tunavuka Mapito kwa neema ya Mungu (We have crossed through troubles through God’s Grace)

(Pre-Refrain)

(Refrain)

(Sung in Swahili)

Wema wako, si kwa wakati wa furaha tu
(Your Goodness, is not only present in times of joy)
Wema wako, pia wakati hata wa majonzi
(Your Goodness is also present in times of grief)
Wema wako, haupimiki, kwa majira fulani tu
(Your Goodness cannot be measured in time)
Wema wako, ni kila wakati, na kila nyakati
(Your Goodness is present at all times, in all seasons)
Hata sasa ni mwema, tunapoimba ni mwema
(Even now He is Good; when we sing He is Good)
Tunapolia ni mwema, tunapocheka ni mwema
(When we weep, he is Good; when we laugh, He is Good)
Tunapopanda ni mwema, tunapovuna ni mwema
(When we plant, He is Good; When we harvest, He is Good)

Refrain:
Wewe ni mwema, u mwema, wewe ni mwema
(You are Good, You are Good, You are Good)
Wewe ni mwema, u mwema, wewe ni mwema (Repeat)
(You are Good, You are Good, You are Good)
Unatupenda x2 Wewe ni mwema (Repeat)
(You love us x2 You are Good)

Wema wako, ni kama mchanga, siwezi kuhesabu
(Your Goodness is like the soil; I cannot count it)
Wema wako, ni kama maji, yanayomiminika bila kukoma,
(Your Goodness is like the water; that flows without ceasing)
Mtu akinge, ama asikinge, hayataacha kutoka
(Should someone obstruct it or not, it will not cease)
Hata sasa ni mwema, tunapoimba ni mwema
(Even now, He is Good; When we sing He is Good)
Tunapolia ni mwema, tunapocheka ni mwema
(When we weep, He is Good; when we laugh, He is Good)

(Refrain)

(Sung in Swahili)

Mkono wako, umenishika (You hands are holding me)
Fimbo yako, yaniongoza (Your Staff leads me)
Gongo lako, lanifariji (Your Rod comforts me)
Umenisitiri, umenifanya hodari (You have hidden me, and made me brave)

Pre-Chorus:
Uliliona chozi langu la ndani (You saw my innermost tears)
Ukalifuta na kunipa amani (You wiped them and granted me peace)
Unyonge wangu haukukuweka mbali (My feebleness did not repel You)
Ukaniinua na kunipa thamani (But You lifted me and gave me value/worth)

Refrain:
Ee Bwana, wanitazama (Oh Lord, You see me)
Baba, Mungu usiyelala (Father, God who never sleeps)
Wanitazama! (You see me!)
Baba, Mungu usiyechoka (Father, God who never tires)

Chorus:
Repeat: Yesu we! (Oh Jesus!)
Mini ni mboni yako, Baba (Father I am the pupil)
Jicho lako, Ee Baba (Of Your Eye, Oh Father) (Repeat)

Akili zangu zilifika mwisho (My thoughts reached its end)
Na kuona Mungu hunitazami taabuni (And thought that God You do not see me in my troubles)
Na wanadamu wakapata cha kusema (People got things to say)
Kuwa Mungu wangu hayupo, tena nami (That my God is no longer with me)

Nilipoona ni Mwisho, wewe ukatangaza mwanzo
(When I thought it was the end, You announced the beginning)
Nilipodhani ni pigo, kumbe li lako kusudi
(When I thought it was a punishment, Lo! It was Your will)
Kilipozidi kilio, wewe ukaleta kicheko
(When my cries grew louder, You brought in laughter)
Ukadhihirisha kwa macho, wewe ni langu kimbilio
(You manifested to my eyes,that You are my refuge)

(Pre-Chorus)

(Refrain)

(Chorus)
