(Sung in Swahili)

E mungu wangu mimi ninatukushukuru (O my God I will thank you)
Mbele ya mataifa mimi nitaimba (Before the nations I will sing)
Dunia nzima nayo itambue hilo (All the world to know that)
Kwamba jina la yesu pekee ndilo (The name of Jesus alone)
Ulimwengu mzima uokolewe kwalo (that will save the world)

Asubuhi na mapema, mimi nitaimba (Early in the morning, I will sing)
Kabla ya kinywa kunena, kwako nitaimba (Before my mouth speaks, I will sing)
Tufani ijapozidi wo, kwako nitaimba (Though troubles increase, to you I will sing)
Nijapoteswa kabisa, kwako nitaimba (Though I am persecuted, to you I will sing)
Nijapodharauliwa, kwako nitaimba (Though I am hated, to you I will sing)

Chorus:

Swiyi… Sikia e kinanda (Swiyi …. listen you guitar)
Swiyi… Amka we kinubi (Swiyi… rise you flute)
Swiyi… Sikia e kinanda (Swiyi… you listen you guitar)
Inuka e zumari, inuka kwa sauti (Rise you flute, rise aloud) (x2)
Woo na utukuzwe Mungu, Woo na utukuzwe Mungu, (God be praised)
Yee Jehova adonai, Yee Jehova adonai, (Jehova Adonai)
El gibo shalom mungu unaitika (El Gibo Shalom, God you answer)
El gibo shalom mungu unaitika (El Gibo Shalom, God you answer)

Uniondolee majivuno, komesha kiburi (remove my boast, stop my pride)
Utawale akili zangu, Bwana niongoze (rule my thoughts, Lord lead me)
Unifundishe roho yangu habari za mbingu (teach my spirit, the things of heaven)
Sikizeni eh kizazi changu, Mungu anaishi (listen my generation, God lives)
Uniondolee majivuno, komesha kiburi (remove my boast, stop my pride)
Utawale akili zangu, Bwana niongoze (rule my thoughts, Lord lead me)
Unifundishe roho yangu habari za mbingu (teach my spirit, the things of heaven)
Sikizeni eh kizazi changu, Mungu anaishi (listen my generation, God lives)

(Chorus)

NIpe moyo ya nyama, ulopondeka (Give me heart of flesh, that is teachable)
Moyo uliotulia, na unyeyekevu (a peaceful and humble heart)
Mimi si kitu kwako, ni mdhuru? tu (I am nothing but dust to you)
Mimi ni kama nani, uniinue (who am I that you should raise me?)
Unifinyange bwana, kama upendavyo (Mould me Lord, the way you like)
Unifundishe Bwana kama upendavyo (Teach me Lord, the way you like)

(Chorus)

NIkikuita mungu, unaitika (When I call you God, you answer)
Rohi eloie heika (?), noishikimu (…Hebrew (?))
Jira el shadai, Jehova oseenu(…Hebrew (?))
El elyo shammah, Mungu unaitika (…, God you answer)
Jehova shabbah, Mungu utanijibu (Jehova Shabbah, God you will answer me)
El gibo shalom, Mungu unaitika (El gibo Shalom, God you answer)
El gibo shalom, Mungu unaitika (El gibo Shalom, God you answer)
El gibo shalom, Mungu unaitika (El gibo Shalom, God you answer)

(Chorus)

Wololo, ololo, olo me ya kusegong'(No, never! I will not look back)
Me ya kusegong’, asubi Jesu (I will not look back, I follow Jesus)
I fix my eyes on Jesus, no more turning back
Til o, til e, akile wololo (decide, and say no)
(repeat)

Mwae ng’olyondet kole chubot, Ne name mogombet (The word says cursed is the man that goes to plough)
ne namei mogombo, ak kokus kong’ (Who holds the plough, and looks back)
Manyolu eng’ boisio, kimwawech Jesu (He is not of value, Jesus tells us)
Ako chi ne u no, ko matilei ki (A person like that, cannot be relied on)
Lewen o, lewen, lewen eng’ u inyegei ye i gil iyai ko chula (Choose, choose wisely, and don’t be like the man)
Til o, til e, Meyai iyai ko chula (decide, don’t be like the man)

Wololo, ololo, olo me ya kusegong'(No, never! I will not look back)

Ame kus kong’ ngo u Isirael,Kiutie Jehova (Don’t look back like the Israel, who forgot God)
Kiutie kayamisutik, koam indara (They forgot His promises, and missed the past)
Kobwat chebo lolosyek,che kimeto eng’ let (They thought of all the things they left behind)
Kiyem tulwet Sinai, kenyisiek artam (They remained around mt. Sinai, for 40 years)
Kigeer ak ama it, emetab kayamiset (They saw but never reached, the promised land)
Ame ngo berberin o, chebo ng’ony koresoi (So do not be deceived, by earthly desires)
Til o, til e, umetete kute murego amengong’al o (decide because like dust, they shall pass)

Wololo, ololo, olo me ya kusegong'(No, never! I will not look back)
Me ya kusegong’, asubi Jesu (I will not look back, I follow Jesus)
I fix my eyes on Jesus, no more turning back

Ye me I lalang’ ak eme ikaite, kutupten Jehova

Kelen iwendi tai ilite let, ibire mark time o
(You say you’re moving forward, yet you move backwards, you’re marktiming)

Wololo, ololo, olo me ya kusegong'(No, never! I will not look back)

Nafungua kinywa changu, nikusifu Baba (I open my mouth, to praise you father)
Umenitendea nimefika sasa hapa (You have done good for me so far)
Wewe kweli ni rafiki, Unaniongoza ninapopotea (You are my friend, leading me when I am lost)
Upendo wako niufananishe na nani baba  (What can I compare your Love to?)

Taabu nyingi kweli nilipitia (I passed through a lot of troubles)
Hadi nikajipata nikikushuku (Until I found myself doubting you)
Sikujua mpango wako kwangu Baba (I was not aware of your plans for me father)
Ulijua yote nikiyapitia (You knew everything I passed through)
Mkono wako ulikuwa umenishikilia nisianguke (Your hand was holding me so I could not fall)
Wewe kimbilio langu (You are my salvation)

Hakuna mwingine, ni wewe pekee yako (There is no other, just you)
Mbele hata nyuma, ni wewe pekee (Ahead or behind me, just you)
Hakuna mwingine, ni wewe pekee yako (There is no other, just you)
Mbele hata nyuma, ni wewe pekee (Ahead or behind me, just you)

Tafuta tafuta hutampata kama yeye (Search and search, you will not find like him)
Alinitoa toka tope la dhambi (He saved me from the mud of sin)
Kama sitaona haya ya kumsifu mungu wangu (Therefore I am not afraid to praise my God)
Siku zote nitamuimbia Baba (All my days I will sing for my father)

Taabu nyingi kweli nilipitia (I passed through a lot of troubles)
Hadi nikajipata nikikushuku (Until I found myself doubting you)
Sikujua mpango wako kwangu Baba (I was not aware of your plans for me father)
Ulijua yote nikiyapitia (You knew everything I passed through)
Mkono wako ulikuwa umenishikilia nisianguke (Your hand was holding me so I could not fall)
Wewe kimbilio langu (You are my salvation)

Hakuna mwingine, ni wewe pekee yako (There is no other, just you)
Mbele hata nyuma, ni wewe pekee (Ahead or behind me, just you)
Hakuna mwingine, ni wewe pekee yako (There is no other, just you)
Mbele hata nyuma, ni wewe pekee (Ahead or behind me, just you)
