(Sung in Swahili – Psalm 35)

Refrain:
Eh Bwana utete nao wanao teta nami (Oh Lord, contend with those who contend with me)
Upigane nao, wanao pigana nami (Fight those who fight against me)(Repeat)

Ushike ngao na kinga usimame, unisaidie (Take up your shield and armor, arise and come to my aid)
Vuta we mkuki uwapige, wanaonifuatia (Brandish your spear against those who pursue me)
Uambie nafsi yangu mimi ni wokovu wako (Say to me “I am your salvation”)
Uwatoe mkuki uwapige, oh wanao nifuatia (Brandish your javelin, against those who pursue me)
Uambie nafsi yangu “mimi ni wokovu wako” (Say to me “I am your salvation”))
Wananiuliza mambo nisiyoyajua (They question me on things I know nothing about)

(Refrain)

Waaibishwe wafedheheshwe (May they be disgraced and put to shame)
Warudishwe nyuma, wanaotafuta nafsi yangu (May they be dismayed, those who plot my ruin)
Wafadhaishwe, wawe kama makapi (May they be like chaff before the wind)
Mbele yao pepo malaika wa Bwana waangushe chini (With the angel of the Lord driving them away)

Wananilipa mabaya, badala ya mema (They repay me evil for good)
Kutwa kucha waniwinda ili niteseke (All day long, they hunt me so that I suffer)
Niko ndani yako niweke eh Mungu wangu (I am in you, preserve me, Oh my God)
Ubavuni mwako nikumbatie, Jehova wangu (Embrace me to your side, my Jehovah)
Mkononi mwako niweke, eh Mungu wangu (Hold me in your hands, Oh my God)
Ubavuni mwako nikumbatie, Jehova wangu (Embrace me to your side, my Jehovah)

(Refrain)

Njia yao iwe giza na utelezi (May their path be dark and slippery)
Malaika wa Bwana, akiwafuatia (With the angel of the Lord pursuing them)
Uharibifu uwapate kwa ghafla (May ruin overtake them by surprise)
Wa uharibifu waanguke ndani yake (May they fall into the pit they hid)
Mimi bure wasinisemange, bure wasinibonge (That they may not speak against me in vain)
Na uovu wao aloficha umnase mwenyewe (May the evil they hid, catch them)
Bila sababu amenichimbia shimo nafsi yangu (Since without cause they dug a pit for me,)
Mifupa yangu yote itasema (All my bones will exclaim)
“Bwana ni nani aliye kama wewe?” (“Who is like you, Lord?”)
Na nafsi yangu itamfurahia Bwana (Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord)

Wapendeza, Bwana wapendeza (You are exalted, Lord be exalted)
Eh Bwana wapendeza (Oh Lord, be exalted)
Katika hili najua utatenda (In this I know you will do)
Nitetee Bwana nitetee (Defend me Lord, defend me)
Eh Bwana nitetee (Oh Lord, defend me)
Katika hili najua utatenda (In this, I know you will do) (Repeat)

Litapita (It Shall Pass) Lyrics by Christina Shusho

(Sung in Swahili)

Nimeona hofu imetanda dunia (I have seen fear permeate the world)
Hofu imetanda dunia (Fear has filled the world)
Huku na huku mambo yamebadilika (Here and there, things have changed)
Mambo ni tofauti (Matters are different)
Tamaduni zetu si kama mwanzo (Our traditions are not like before)
Si vile tulivyozoea (It is not the way we are used to)
Aliye nacho analia, asiye nacho pia analia (Both the haves and have nots are crying)
Tajiri, masikini tumekuwa sawa (The rich and the poor, we’ve become equals)
Si vile tulivyozoea (It’s not what we are used to)

Refrain:
Hili nalo litapita ee, litapita ee (This too shall pass, it shall pass)
Hili litapita ee, kutapambazuka (This too shall pass, it shall be dawn)
Hili nalo litapita ee, litapita ee (This too shall pass, it shall pass)
Hili litapita ee, asubuhi yaja (This too shall pass, the morning is coming) (Repeat)

No situation is permanent
Nyakati huja na kupita (Seasons come and go)
Watu huja na kuondoka (People come and leave)
Kila kitu chini ya jua kina mwisho (Everything under the sun has an end)
Shida na raha zina mwisho (Troubles and joy have an end)
Yesu pekee atabaki juu (Only Jesus shall remain high)
Neno lake, milele yote (His Word, forevermore)
Yeye tu, hana mwisho (It is only Him that does not have an end)

(Refrain)

Miujiza (Miracles) Lyrics by Christina Shusho

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Si kwa bahati mbaya uko hai leo (It is not by chance that you are alive today)
Na si kwamba wewe ni mjanja kuliko wale waliolala (It’s not that you’re cleverer than those who are asleep)
Ila yote ni muujiza wa Mungu tu (But all this, is the miracle of God)
Ni muujiza tu (It is only a miracle)

Nikilala niamke, nikiona natembea (When I sleep and then rise, when I see myself walking)
Mwenzenu, kwangu ni muujiza (Comrade, to me it is a miracle)
Asubuhi kunakucha, Jioni iikingia (When the morning dawns, and the evening arrives)
Maisha yangu, mimi ni muujiza tu (My life, I am just a miracle)

Siku ikipita, mwezi na mwaka unakwisha (The days passes, the month and the year end)
Mimi, hii kwangu ni muujiza tu (To me, all this is a miracle)
Ewe Yesu, Ee Yesu, Bwana wangu we (Jesus, Oh Jesus, Oh my Lord)
Oh kwangu ni muujiza (All this is a miracle)

Refrain:
Mimi ni muujiza, maisha yangu ni muujiza (I am a miracle, my life is a miracle)
Ee Bwana, we kwangu ni muujiza (Oh Lord, You are my miracle)
Nikilala ni muujiza, nikiamka ni muujiza (When I sleep and when I rise, it is a miracle)
Ee Bwana, we kwangu ni muujiza (Oh Lord, to me You are my miracle)

Kuna waliolala, hawakuamka (There are those who fell asleep and never rose)
Ee Bwana naona ni muujiza (Oh Lord I see all as miracles)
Walioanza safari, hawakufika (Those who started the journey, and never arrived)
Mimi leo, najiona mi muujiza (Today, I see myself as a miracle)
Kuwa hai, kutangaza neno lako (To be alive, to spread Your Word)
Bwana kwangu, mimi ni muujiza (Lord to me, I am a miracle)
Sina sababu, ya kunyamaza (I do not have a reason to be silent)
Maana kwangu, wewe Bwana ni muujiza (For to me, You Lord are a miracle)

(Refrain)

Oh yeah, Oh Yesu we… (Oh Jesus)

(Refrain)
