Dua (Prayer) Lyrics by Alice Kimanzi

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Hali hii yangu (My current situation)
Isiwe nafasi ya kuto msifu Mungu (Should not be a time to forget to praise God)
Mahali nil’ofika pasi ninung’unishe moyo (Where I have reached, to not let my heart complain)
Daima nimshukuru (But forever to thank Him)
Nafsi yangu ‘sisahau (My self to not forget)
Yale yote ametenda (All that He has done for me)
Kwa upendo wake mwema (Through His Great Love)
Kanizingira kwa neema (And surrounding me with Grace)
Moyo wangu, vuta heri kwa subira (My soul, find joy in waiting)

Refrain:
Atajibu dua langu (He will answer my prayer)
Kwa njia Yake, na wakati Wake (In His way and in His time)
Atajibu dua langu (He will answer my prayer)
Kwa njia Yake, na wakati Wake (In His way and in His time)
Moyo tulia (Be still my heart)

Najua njia hii si rahisi (I know that this is not easy)
Natambua mlima huu umezidi (I understand that this mountain is difficult)
Uwezo wangu (Beyond my capability)
Egemeo ni Yesu tu (The fortress is only Jesus)
Na hata giza likija na mashaka pia (Even if darkness and doubts come)
Yazibe macho yangu (To veil my eyes)
Bado nitazidi, kwani Ye aliahidi (I will still continue, for He promised)
Nasadiki Neno lake kweli (And I believe His Word to be true)

(Refrain)

Kwani Yeye anakuona (For He sees you)
Tena Yeye anakujali (moyo tulia) (And He also cares for you (Be still my heart))
Anahisi uchungu wako (He senses your pain)
Tulia, tulia (Be still, be still)

(Refrain)

Yuko Mungu (There is God) Lyrics by Alice Kimanzi ft Paul Clement

(Sung in Swahili)

Spoken:
Mungu anaweza kufanya njia jangwani (God can make a way in the jungle)
Na mito ya maji nyikani (And rivers in the desert)
Kama alifanya masika na kiangazi (Like he created Spring and Summer)
Anaweza kubadili majira, pia na wakati (He can change seasons and time)

Giza, totoro yanizingira (Deep darkness surrounds me)
Miale haijanifikia (The rays (of sunshine) does not reach me)
Ilhali kumekucha, pambazuka (Even though it is dawn, there is light)
Imani, yashuka yadidimia (My faith drops and weakens)
Amani nayo yafifia (And peace flees from me)
Eloi, Lamasabaktani (Elo, Lamasabakhtani?)

Refrain:
Yuko Mungu, anayeweza (There is God who is able)
Yuko Mungu, anayetenda (There is God able to do)
Mwamini Yeye! (Trust in Him!)
Mwamini Yeye, utoaibika (Trust in Him, you will not be ashamed)

Giza likiwa ni nzito (When darkness is heavy)
Bwana atawasha taa (The Lord will shine a light)
Sababu Mungu mwenye Amandla (Because God is the one with the Strength)
Atarejesha amani, (He will restore your peace)
Atarejesha furaha (He shall restore your joy)
Ulivyovipoteza kwa muda mrefu (The one you’ve lost for a long time)
Atarejesha Amandla (The Powerful one will return it)

(Refrain)

Repeat: Mungu pekee Ndiye awezaye (Only God is able)
Pale ninaposhindwa, nani wa kuniwezesha? (When I am unable, who grants me strength?)
Nikiwa vitani, nani wa kunishindia? (When I’m in battle, who is my champion?)
Napokuwa mdhaifu, nani wa kunipa nguvu? (When I am weak, who gives me strength?)
Ninapotia shaka nani wa kuniongoza (When I am doubtful, who leads me?)

Yuko Mungu, Mungu Yupo (There is God, God is there)
Oh…

(Refrain)

Surrender Lyrics by Alice Kimanzi (Cross Life Movement)

Leave a comment


With a desolate and thirsty soul
I come to the throne of my Father
With my worship as a sweet perfume
I come to the feet of my Master
With a broken and a contrite heart
I come to the flames of your Altar

I offer my failures, all of my triumphs
Oh my Lord, take it all
I’m trading my ashes, ashes for beauty
Oh my Lord, beauty of Your Glory

Refrain:
You care for my heart
You care for my soul
You carried the cross that was meant for me Lord
I give you my heart
I give you my soul
And all that I am, I
Surrender it all, surrender it all
I surrender it all, surrender it all

In times of trouble and in times of need
I am, aware of your presence
When my hope is like a dying flame
I am. aware of your great love

Lord, In my weakness yes I will rejoice
‘Cause I am aware of your power
I surrender my fears in this valley
O my lord, I trust in You
And I give you this mountain
Standing before me
Oh my lord take control

(Refrain)

‘Cause You are on my side, You are full of love
I surrender it all
I give you all I am, Lord I give you all I have
I surrender!

I Surrender it all, surrender it all
I surrender it all, surrender it all

(Sung in Swahili)

Moyo wakutamani ewe Baba (My soul desires you, Father)
Mwili wangu wakulilia (My body cries our for You)
Kama vile ayala (Just like the deer)
Atamanivyo maji akiona kiu (When thirsty, pants for water )
(Repeat)

Refrain:
Nikuabudu Bwana, Nikuabudu (To worship You Lord, to worship You)
Ndio tamaa yangu milele (Is my desire forever)
Yesu, nikuabudu (Jesus, to worship You)
(Repeat)

Ninapofadhaika (When I despair)
Nitakimbia hekaluni mwako, Yahweh (I will run to Your sanctuary, Lord)
Na nitaimimina nafsi yangu (I shall pour my soul)
Mbele zako Bwana (Before You Lord)
Kwani upendo wako ni wimbo wa kunitimiza (For Your Love is a fulfilling song)
Jina lako tegemeo (Your Name is dependable)
Tena ngome ilio imara (And a safe refuge)

(Refrain)

Hapa chini ya mbawa zako, sala ni moja (My prayer while under Your wings)
Kwamba kwa macho haya yangu (Is that with my eyes)
Niuone utukufu wako (I would witness Your Glory)
Tenda miujiza, Baba (Do Your miracles, Father)
Tenda maajabu (Do miracles)
Kwani fadhili zako (For your Mercies)
Ni bora kuliko uhai (Are better than life)

(Refrain)

Amen, Amen Amen Amen x?

Amen
