(Languages: Lingala, French, Tshiluba)

C’est ta faveur qui relève notre force (It is your favor that raises our strength)
Car l’Eternel est notre bouclier (For the Lord is our shield)(Repeat)

Yahweh naye, kopesa yo nkembo (Yahweh, we give You the glory)
Kotatola, bolingo nayo pona ngai (Testifying, of Your Love for me)
Bolamu na yo yango nde ememi ngai awa (Your goodness is what brought me here)
Soki yote nde na beba kala (If you weren’t I’d be ruined long ago)

Lisolo ya motema kumama, yaya eh (This is a heartfelt song of praise)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)
Na lingi na yemba kumama, Papa eh (I want to sing of Your praise, my Father)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)

Lisolo ya motema kumama, Papa eh (This is a heartfelt song of praise)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)
Obenga ngai muana kumama, Papa eh (You called me your child, Be praised Father)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)
Kisi ya soni kumama, Papa eh (The cure of shame, my Father)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)
Libaku malamu kumama, Papa eh (You gave me an opportunity to praise, my Father)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)

Lobi te lelo (Not tomorrow, but today)
Biso to kita yo o mata (We bow down before you)

Lisolo ya bomoyi na ngai (The story of my life)
Nde na yembi na nzembo ( I tell it with a song)
Lisolo ya bomoyi na ngai (The story of my life)
Nde nabeti na nzembo (We tell it with a dance)
Tango mipepe pe ba mbonge eyaki (When the winds and waves came)
Na bomoyi na ngai (In my own life)
Ya Yesu atikaki ngai te (My Jesus did not abandon me)

Ngai Yozefu na kati ya boloko (Like Joseph in captivity)
Liloba nayo ezalaki mwinda na nga (Your Word is my light)
Opesaki nga makasi yako téléma (You gave me the strength to get up again)
Bisila ba susu ba kweya (When others stumbled and fell)
Pona ngengisa oyo ya nga libota (You made my family shine)
Ba Nzembele (..?..)
Po na ngengisa oyo ya nga libota (You made my family shine)

Tatuenda wa bana kumama, Papa eh (Father, You have made us Your children)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)
Bwanga bua bundu kumama, Papa eh (Fathe, we are Your disciples)
Eh Yahweh kumama papa eh eh (Oh Yahweh be praised, my Father)

Repeat: Eh Yahweh kumama (Oh Yahweh be praised)
Eh Yahweh kumama, eh Yahweh kumama (Oh Yahweh be praised)
Lobi te lelo (Not tomorrow, but today)
To sengi yo kumama nanu awa nanu awa (We ask you still speak with us)
Eh Yahweh kumama (Oh Yahweh be praised)
Biso to kita yo o, mata o mérité (We say that You deserve it)
O mérité (You deserve it)

Wa kuenda nende yo, lelele yo lelele yo (Wherever You go, I will go with You) x3

Toyebi bisika azua biso (We know the distance He’s brought us)
De zero en héros (From nothing to heroes)
Makambu osaleli ngai, na pasoli bilamba te o (The things You’ve done for us)
Na pasoli motema eh (You opened my heart)
Nzambe na luka na pasi (God,  I sought You in my pain)
Na matela ba ngoma (And now I praise You in my triumph)

Bolingo ya motema (The love of my heart)
Kisi ya soni (The wiper of shame)
Eh Yahweh kumama, Papa eeh (Oh Yahweh be praised, our Father)

(Sung in Lingala)

Tongo etana, butu eyinda eh (The Dawn is breaking, wake up)
Kembo na nzambe, etondi mokili iii (God’s glory, is going around the world)
Batunaka ngai, wapi nzambe na yo (The world asks me, where is your God?)
Nzambe na ngai, afandi na nkembo o okumama yahweh
(I say my God is seated in glory, Oh Yahweh, be praised!)

Chorus:
Eh Yahweh, eh yahweh kumama (kumama yahweh) (Yahweh be praised)
Eh yahweh, eh yahweh kumama (oh kumama yahweh) (Yahweh be praised)
eh yahweh eh yahweh kumama (Yahweh be praised)
eh yahweh eh yahweh kumama (Yahweh be praised)

Na mokilli batunaka ngai, wapi nzambe na yo (I was asked, where is your God?)
Nayanoli na lolendo, avandi na nkembo (And with pride, I replied that He lives in glory)
Engambe mobali, nzambe oyo azongaka sima te
(He is valiant, this God who will stop at nothing)
Tika na netola yo, makasi na ngai  (The let me magnify Him, for He is my strength)

(Chorus)

Wuta na yeba masiya, posa ya mokili esila ngai
(As I know the Messiah, I’m not attracted by this world)
namela may’a bomoyi, azipa libulu’a motema
(I drank the water of life and the emptiness in my heart was filled)
natika koluka luka bipayi binso, nazua oyo ya motuya
(I will stop searching , for I found my treasure)
pauni na ngai ya talo, masiya Yesu na ngai
(My treasure and my precious stones, is my Lord Jesus Christ)

(Chorus)

Nzamb’eyo baluba babengi panda njila, akelaka nzela ata n’ebale
(This God that the Baluba (tribe) call “Panda Njila,” (the God) who creates a road even through a sea (river))
soki okome na suka, tshela nde yesu motema
(When you feel has exhausted and no hope, it is in Him that you must put all your faith)
moning’oy’akosaka te, asalaka te pe te proud
(He is the friend who never betrays and is always available when needed)
Luka ye butua pe moyi, aza n’eyano na yo oh kumama yahweh eeh
(Seeking from morning till evening, he has the solution your problem)

(Chorus)
