Heshima (Respect) Lyrics by Annastazia Mukabwa And Rose Muhando

2 Comments



(Sung in Swahili)

Refrain:
Wanaokudharau siku moja watakusalimia kwa heshima
(Those who despise you, one day will greet you with respect)
(repeat)

Mateso yako ni ya muda tu, Mungu akuandalia ushuhuda
(Your troubles are only for a time, God is preparing a testimony for you)
Daudi Alikuwa mchunga kondoo, Mungu akamwinua kuwa mfalme
(David was a shepherd, God lifted him to be a king)
Leo unaitwa ombaomba, kesho utaitwa mbarikiwa
(Today you are called a beggar, tomorrow you will be called blessed)
Licha unatembea kwa miguu, kesho utaendesha gari
(Inspite of walking, tomorrow you will drive a car)

Chorus:
Nasema watakusalimia, kwa heshima (I say they will greet you, with respect)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Wakati wako wako wa kuinuliwa, ukifika (When your time to be lifted, has come)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They will greet you, with respect)
Wakati wako wa kubarikiwa, ukifika (When your time to be blessed, arrives)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Wakati wako wa kukumbukwa, ukifika (When your time to be remembered arrives)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)

Wanaosema hautaolewa, watashuhudia ndoa yako
(Those who say you will not be married, will witness your wedding)
Pale utakapovalishwa pete, watashikwa na kigugumizi
(When you are given a ring, they will be speechless)
Wanaosema wewe ni tasa, watakuona ukinyonyesha
(Those who say you are barren, will see you breastfeeding)
Na Mungu alimkumbuka Sara, hata wewe utakumbukwa
(God remembered Sarah, he will remember you as well)

(Chorus)

Wakuu wa Mungu wetu ni Ebeneza, hata sasa yupo
(Our great God is Ebenezer, even now he is here)
Msaada wetu wa karibu, mwite ataitika
(Our close help, call him and He’ll answer)

Jifunze kuwa na subira, utafanikiwa
(Teach yourself to be patient, and you will succeed)
Sana siku sio gani mama, atakuinua
(Not for much longer mother, he’ll lift you up)
Ona leo wanakuita kikaragosi, kesho watakuita bosi
(Look today they call you useless, tomorrow they’ll call you boss)
Aliyekunyima kadi za harusi, kesho wataomba shela yako
(Those who denied you an invitation, tomorrow will beg for crumbs)
Ona leo wanakupiga kibuti, kesho watakupigia saluti
(Today they kick you out, tomorrow they’ll salute you)

Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Watakupigia magoti, ukifika (They’ll kneel before you, when you arrive)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Walikuona ukilala jalani, ukifika (They saw you sleeping on rubbish, when you arrive)
Kesho watakupata ofisini, kwa heshima (Tomorrow they’ll find you in your office with respect)
Watakusalimia, ukifika (They’ll greet you when you arrive)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Watakupigia saluti, watakusalimia kwa heshima.
(They’ll salute you, they’ll greet you with respect)

Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela
Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela

Ee Bwana nakuinua,nikikumbuka ulikonitoa
(Oh Lord I lift you up, when I remember where you saved me from)
Kwenye maisha ya aibu, na kunifanya wa thamani
(From the life of shame, and made me valuable)
Ee Bwana nakuinua,nikikumbuka ulikonitoa
(Oh Lord I lift you up, when I remember where you saved me from)
Kwenye maisha ya aibu, na kunifanya wa thamani
(From the life of shame, and made me valuable)
Kama si wewe ningekuwa wapi, kama si wewe ningeitwa nani
(Where would I be if not for you, What would I be called?)
Ningelikuwa nimekufa mimi, kwenye shimo la uharibifu
(I would have been lost, in the hole of corruption)
Kama si wewe ningekuwa wapi, kama si wewe ningeitwa nani
(Where would I be if not for you, What would I be called?)
Ningelikuwa nimekufa mimi, kwenye shimo la uharibifu
(I would have been lost, in the hole of corruption)

Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela
Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela

Ni wengi niliyowajua, wenye mapesa na utajiri
(I knew a lot of people with money and riches)
Wenye majumba ya kifahari, lakini leo hawako tena
(With elaborate mansions, but they are not there today)
Ni wengi niliyowajua, wenye mapesa na utajiri
(I knew a lot of people with money and riches)
Wenye majumba ya kifahari, lakini leo hawako tena
(With elaborate mansions, but they are not there today)
Lakini mimi wanilinda bure, si kwamba nimetenda mema baba
(But you freely secure me, not because I have done good works father)
Bali ni kwa neema yako, ndio maana mimi naishi
(But I live because of your grace)
Sio ni kwamba nimetenda mema baba, ila ni kwa neema yako
(Not because I have done good works father, but because of your grace)
Ndio maana mimi naishi, Wacha nikutuze wewe
(That is why I am alive, so let me praise you)

Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela
Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela

Siwezi kukulipa baba, kwa yale umenitendea
(I cannot repay you father, for all you have done for me)
Bali naomba moyoni mwangu, nipe moyo wa kukupenda
(But I pray in my heart, that you would give me a loving heart)
Siwezi kukulipa baba, kwa yale umenitendea
(I cannot repay you father, for all you have done for me)
Bali naomba moyoni mwangu, nipe moyo wa kukupenda
(But I pray in my heart, that you would give me a loving heart)
Niondolee kiburi baba, nipe moyo mnyenyekevu
(Remove pride from me father, give me a humble heart)
Ili nikuishie wewe, siku zote za maisha yangu
(So that I live for you, all the days of my life)
(Remove pride from me father, give me a humble heart)
Ili nikuishie wewe, siku zote za maisha yangu
(So that I live for you, all the days of my life)

Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela
Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela

Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela
Zinzilela makata na muye, zinzilela zinzilela

1 Comment



(Sung in Swahili)
Mungu alinena naye Musa hicho kiatu kivue(God told Moses remove that shoe)
Mungu alinena naye Musa hicho kiatu kivue(God told Moses remove that shoe)
Ulichotoka nacho kwa farao nakwambia(The one you came with from Pharaoh)
Pahali hapa ni patakatifu hicho kiatu kivue(The place you are standing is holy) (x2)

Musa hicho kiatu, Musa hicho kiatu(Moses remove that shoe, take it off)
Nataka ninene nawe, nataka nikutumie(I want to speak to you, I want to use you)
Nataka nikuinue, nataka nikubariki(I want to lift you up, I want to bless you)
Watu wangu waangamia,taifa langu la Israeli(My nation Israel is perishing)
Watu wangu wanasononeka,watu wangu wanateseka(My people are desolate and desperate)
Nataka nikutumie wewe, ukaokoe taifa langu we(I want to use you to rescue my nation)

Hata leo mungu anena nasi hicho kiatu we(Even today God tells us to remove that shoe)
Kiatu ni dhambi uzifanyazo ninakwambia(The shoe is your sins I tell you)
Ukahaba unaoeneza kando kando ni kiatu(Your secret promiscuity is the shoe)
Wivu na masengenyo vimekuja ni kiatu(Jealousy and gossip is the shoe)
Kitakupeleka jehanamu hicho kiatu(The shoe will take you to hell)
Kitakupeleka motoni wewe hicho kiatu(It will take you to the lake of fire)
Uzinzi unaoeneza wewe ni kiatu(Unfaithfulness is the shoe)
Uvalie wake wa wenzio magoti we nakwambia(Seducing married women I tell you)
Utongoza waume wa wenzio ni kiatu we(Seducing married men is the shoe)
Kitakupekea jehanamu hicho kiatu(That shoe will take you to hell)
Mama hicho kiatu, baba hicho kiatu(Mother that shoe, father that shoe)
Nataka ninene nawe, maana ninakupenda(I want to speak with you for I love you)
Nataka ninene nawe, ili nikuokoe(I want to speak with you so I could save you)
Mimi sitaki uangamie, mimi sitaki upotee(I don’t want you to perish or to lose you)
Mimi sitaki uangamie, maana mimi ninakujali(I don’t want you to perish because I care)
Mimi Mungu ni wa neema, mimi mungu ni wa upendo(I am the God of grace, God of love)

Ukitaka Mungu akubariki lazima kiatu kivue
(If you want God to bless you, you must remove the shoe)
Ukitaka kuinuliwa wewe ni lazima kivue
(If you want to be lifted up you must take off the shoe)
Wivu ulio nao wewe ni lazima kivue
(You must remove your jealousy (Take it off)
Hutaki kuona mwenzako mama akiinuliwa wewe
(You don’t want your friend to prosper (take it off)
Hutaki kuona mwenzako akiwa amependeza
(You don’t want your friend to be beautiful (take it off)
Hutaki kuona mwenzako akiwa yuko smart
(You don’t want your friend looking ‘smart’ (take it off)
Tabia ulio nayo mama ninakwambia wewe
(Your manners mother I tell you (Take it off)
Hutaki kuona ndoa ya mwenzako jamani mke na mume wakicheka
(You don’t want your friend to have a happy marriage (Take it off)
Tabia uliyo nayo baba, nakwambia badilika
(Your ways father, I tell you to change (Take it off)
Hutaki kuona huduma ya mwenzako jamani likisonga mbele
(You don’t want your friends service to prosper (Take it off)
Hebu kivue, jamani hebu kivue
(Take it off, please take it off (Take it off)
Kiatu cha nyumba ndogo, kiatu cha ulevi
(The shoe of a promiscuous house, the shoe of drunkedness (Take it off)
Kiatu cha uzinzi, kiatu cha masengenyo
(The shoe of unfaithfulness, the shoe of gossip (Take it off)
Kivue, kivue, kivue, kivue
(Take it off, take it off, take it off, take it off)

Mungu ananena nawe hicho kiatu kivue
(God is telling you to remove that shoe (Take it off)
Mungu anena nawe hicho kiatu kivue
(God is telling you to remove that shoe(Take it off)

Valia mini waume wa wenzio iwe mwisho
(Wearing minis for married men must end (Take it off)
Kuvalia vitovu waume wa wenzio iwe mwisho
(Wearing briefs for married men must end (Take it off)
Kupaka wanja kwa waume wa wenzio iwe mwisho
(Make up for the sake of married men must end (Take it off)
Nataka nikupe mumueo, nataka nikupe nyumba yako
(I want to give you your husband, I want to give you your home (Take it off)
Nataka nikuinue, nataka nikuinue
(I want to lift you up, I want to raise you up (Take it off)
Nataka nikuinue, niinue mume wako
(I want to lift you up, to lift your husband (Take it off)
Niinue nyumba yako, nimwunue mke wako
(To lift up your family, to lift up your wife (Take it off)
Nikupatia mchumba, kiatu cha nyumba ndogo
(To give you a wife, the shoe of small minds (take it off)
Mungu anasema nawewe hicho kiatu kivue
(God is telling you to take off that shoe (Take it off)
Kivue, kivue, kivue, kivue
(Take it off, take it off, take it off, take it off
Ah, hicho kiatu kivue
(Ah remove that shoe!)
