Kamba (Chains/Bondage) Lyrics by Sylvia Wambui

Leave a comment


(Sung in Swahili)

Kamba za mauti zilinizunguka mie (The chains of death surrounded me)
Mafuriko ya maovu yakanitia hofu (The flood of evil made me afraid)
Kamba za mauti zilinizunguka mie (The chains of death surrounded me)
Mitego ya mauti ikanikaribia mimi (The trap of death neared me)
Niliona shida,Niliona taabu (I saw trouble, I saw suffering)
Nikakuita Bwana wangu na wewe ukaitika (I called you my Lord, and you answered)

Kumuacha Bwana sio kuzuri Baba/Mama yangu (Leaving Him is not good dad/mum) x2
Nilimuacha mimi, nilipata shida/taabu (I left Him and suffered/troubled) x2
(Repeat)

Nikakimbia kimbia kwake Yesu/Baba (So I ran to Jesus/Father) x2

(Refrain)  +  (Verse)

Intro:
Nikilemewa nishike, Nikilemewa nishike (Hold me when I am weary)
Nikilemewa nishike, Mkono Baba (Hold me when I am weary, Hold my hand Father)

Verse 1:
Adui wanizingira, rafiki kawa duni (Enemies surround me, friends left me)
Matata kanipata, mashaka kawa mengi (Trouble found me, My doubts were many)
Maovu yamezidi, wema kadhulumiwa (Evil is rampant, goodness is persecuted)
Nakulilia ee baba, iwe nategemea (I cry to you O God, to you I rely on)

Chorus:
Nikilemewa nishike, Nikilemewa nishike
(Hold me when I am weary, Hold me when I am weary)
Nikilemewa nishike, nionyeshe njia yako baba
(Hold me when I am weary, Show me your ways Father)
(repeat)

Verse 2:
Nuru yangu na wokovu, sitaogopa kitu (My light and salvation, I shall not fear)
Niwe unipaye nguvu, na kuniweka huru (It is you who gives me strength, and free me)
Wema wao na fadhili, zaniandama mie (Your goodness and mercy, follow me)
Mambo yakinizidi, ndiwe mwamba salama (When it is too much, you are the safe refuge)

Chorus (repeat x3)

Verse 3:
Kando ya maji matulivu, Wewe waniongoza (Beside quiet waters, you lead me)
Waniandalia karamu, mbele ya adui zangu (You prepare a table, before my enemies)

Nishike, nishike mkono baba… (Hold me, hold my hand Father…)

(Chorus)
