(Sung in Swahili)

Na wala sio sababu ya jina langu (It is not because of my name)
Wala sio sababu ninavaa (Neither is it because of how I dress)
Najua sio sababu ya sadaka zangu (I know it is not because of my offerings)
Oh, maana ndio ninashangaa (Oh, that is why I am amazed)
Nilijua kwamba nimeshapoteza nafasi (I knew I had lost my space)
Mimi ni nani kwani? Nakosa neno kusema (For who am I? I am lost for words)
Unisamehe, sikujua unanipenda hivi (Forgive me, I did not know you loved me thus)
Umefanya bure, sawa upendavyo (You have made it free, according to your will)
Umeruhusu niwe, vile upendavyo (You have permitted me to be, the way you will it)

Refrain:
Nitakushukuru tu, kwa neema (I will thank You, for the Grace)
Asante tu, kwa wema (Thank you, for the Goodness) (Repeat)
Maana kama si wewe (For if it was not for You)
Kama si wewe ningekuwa wapi? (If not for You, where would I be?) (Repeat)
Wacha machozi yanitirike tu (Let my tears fall)
Wacha kilio nikulilie Mungu (Let my cry be to You, Lord)

Natafuta cha kunitenga nawe, bado sijaona (I have yet to find what could separate us)
Nilishakatwakatwa moyo na kupondwa na wanadamu (I have been heart broken by people)
Wao wataniambia nini, nikiwa nawe? (But what can they tell me, if I am with You?)
Leo wataniambia nini, nikiwa nawe? (what can they tell me today, if I am with You?)
Pesa huitwa sabuni, ila maji ni wewe (Money is called the soap, but You are the water)
Unioshe Bwana, nitakase (Wash me Lord, cleanse me)

(Refrain)
