1 Comment


(Languages: English, Bemba)

Refrain:
Chikondi chanu Baba (Your Love Father)
Sichi lekelela (Holds me tightly)
You are my loving Father
Nichi yendelela (Goes on and on)
And I can’t imagine my life without Your love
No I can’t imagine my life without Your love

Tikaliyo fika (We have not yet arrived)
Kwekagona ka zuba (Where the sun sets)
sininkala chete (I cannot be silent)
Ndifuna ndi tamande Zina lanu (I want to worship Your Name)
Nivanvela kumutima ati odi (I heard a knock in my heart)
Nko nko nko (knock knock, knock)
Karibu ni nodi (Come in Father)
Zintu zonse ni zanu fikani Baba papangeni panu
(Everything is Yours, make this Your home)
Just Your love is all I need, is all I need
I’m made for You, live and breathe oh just for You
Munani doba, noni suka, noni nyamula
(You picked me, washed me lifted me)
Munani konza (You fixed me)
Munani suka, noni yimya, noni kwezeka
(You washed me, carried me, set me high)
Munani konda (You loved me)

(Refrain)

Divine Piece, only when You’re beside me
And it is so surprising
How You still holding tightly
Even on my foolish days
This is why I give You praise
How You could renew this slave, no better
Sinilekela (I’m not letting go)
Pali chikondi chanu nzelu zima pela
(When it comes to Your love, I’m lost for words)
You’re always on time
Ndimwe mu panga ntawi (You are the creator of Time)
With You by my side
No weaponry can harm me
You’re always on time
Ndimwe mu panga ntawi (You are the creator of Time)
With You by my side, no weaponry can harm me

(Refrain)

No I cant imagine… Without Your love

Silence Lyrics by Pompi

(Non-English Parts sung in Bemba)

All you need a seed, a mustard seed
To be specific it’s all you need
And in faith just speak
And it shall be
Lazarus ali gone (Lazarus resurrecting (?))
Is what you should see
Get a vision and call it

Refrain:
Silence! Ve a funa ni silence (What he wants is silence)
Wene uja kawalala (That thief that you know)
Ve a funa ni silence (What he wants is silence)
Speak what you want to see
Declare what you want to be
Osati, Silence! (Not silence!)
Ve a funa ni silence (What he wants is silence)

I am strong in the Lord
And the power of His might
Tell a lion you can’t bite
Ngati unga kambe na lupili (If you can speak to a mountain)
Ninshi ili na matu (Then it means it has ears)
You steps aside
’cause I know where my treasure is
It’s on the other side
And I’m here with some witnesses

(Refrain)

Get to a land that’s promised
Speak to the rock – don’t strike it
Yes you can move that mountain
(You can move that mountain)
In faith our belief was founded

Get to your place of promise x2
Speak to the rock – don’t strike it x2
(No delay)
Yes you can move that mountain x2
(And I’ve seen it move)
In faith our belief was founded
(My belief was founded)

(Refrain)

Speak with no delay
And sing now with no delay (Repeat x?)

(Purchase “Runaway Child” | Buy the “Mubanga” Album)

(Sung in Bemba)

Nali ku bumba, ne minwe shandi (I created you with my own hands)
Nali ku pela ishina lyandi (I gave you my name)
No ku ku panga umwana wandi (And made you my heir)
Nali ku bumba no ku ku pela ubumi (I created you and gave you life)
U ku ku samfya, u ku ku wamya, no ku ku temwa (I washed you,  cleansed you and loved you)

Refrain:
Nomba wile kwi, wemwana wandi (Now where have you gone, My child)
Nomba wile kwi ulubile kwi, (Where have you gone, ehere are you disappeared to)
‘Cause I want you back
You should think of my love and my grace,
I’m the only thing you need
You should think of my love and my grace,
I’m the only thing you need
Come back, come back, come back Runaway Child
Come back, come back, come back

I held you in my arms, I saw you smiling
I fell in love with you, I thought you loved me too
And I know it’s not easy but I’ll give you strength to fight
Don’t you hide when you’re hurting; let me heal you with my love

(Refrain)

Oh the things you feel, I feel too
Oh the things you see, I see too
But my child, I’m all you need
so please come back home, please come back

(Refrain)
