(Sung in Kalenjin)

Ng’eet Akiilu, ng’eet akiilu (Arise and shine)
For the Glory of the Lord has risen up on you
Ng’eet o, akiilu (Arise and shine)

Logoiwech che miach, Eh bororyo (Good news, brethren)
Inye ne iratat, inye ne inyorot (To the bound and captive)
Kige wirta wirten, ma itinye kamang’uno (You’ve been bruised, with no hope)
Ime mesundeito, ma i kereter (You’ve been burdened, and see no future)
Lekleten nyigisindet (Lay down your burden)
It’s a new season, It’s a new beginning


Kenyit nito ne chamat, Kenyi nito nebo kiptaiyat
(This is a blessed year, a year of the Lord)
Makororoptoi asistang’ung’, ama komeny araweng’ung’
(Neither your sun or your moon will harm you)
Agoi kesuge betusie chebo rirek (Until the days of mourning end)
Ne ka tai oret kilagu chepkule ne bo lelesta (And we are crowned with crowns of praise)
Ak ingoryet nebo kalosunet (And the garment of praise)


Arise and shine for your light has come
And the Glory of the Lord has risen up on you
It’s a new beginning its a new dawn
Its a year of restoration, the year of jubilee
Beautiful ashes, an ode of joy and a garment of joy
Will give you, Arise!

Verse 1:
Mitei Lapkeiyet, bandanyu tugul
Ye asirei chun che tananso
Kile Jesu, magoi abakakten
Kosu laanyun ng’olyondenyin

Lapkeiyet Jesu, nebo kipsengwet
Ne kigo werwo muguleldanyu
Haleluya, Abaibai mising’
Agasigei eng’ yetindenyu

Verse 2:
Nga ndami nyalil, komoswek tugul
Koma koitekta yetindenyu
Jesu ko lapkeiyetab ng’onyuni
Nekitendo inego tugul


Verse 3:
Awendi konyu, nekigochabwa
Alosunoti, eng’ bandanyu
O boiboyet eng’ muguleldanyu
Amu ne lapkeiyet ak chamyet

(chorus)(repeat twice)
