Eh, hey Sobei cheiso

Chorus:
Sobei Jesu, Sobei Jesu, Sobei Jesu (Jesus is alive)
Ak mamitei kiy ne temenen o (And nothing is impossible with Him)
(Repeat)

Tos ne ye isome? Ne noto iminy? (What are you praying for? What troubles you?)
Kale Jesu, ibun miletabung’un, (Jesus said, bring all your burdens to)
Som ak sigegonin, Ikonygony as sigeyatun(Ask:you’d be given, knock:it’d be opened)
Agei tugul isomei, Kigochin mwae Jehovah(What you ask you’ll be given says the Lord)
Inan agobo Hannah, kirorechi Penninah (Remember Hannah; how Peninah jeered her)
Ago eng Iet – kigochi werit Samuel (Yet at the end – she was given the son Samuel)
Kimitun, telel imangu Jesu (He’ll meet you; Stand firm and wait on Jesus)
Sobei Jesu, ma ko lo asikolawalun (Jesus is alive, it will not be long that He’ll answer)

(Chorus)

Kiinyalil kiber akike sastainen (You’re discouraged and feeling abandoned)
Kitugul ne iyae mebore ak mekesei (Everything that you does not flourish)
Amengomen muguleldab kayane (Do not lose the heart of faith)
Amengeisten kwane walutik (And do not give up your hope)
Kasartab kiptaiyat, ko notok ne chamat (God’s timing is that of love)
Igen name tabtabten amu sabei Jesu (Hold on and wait, because Jesus lives)
Neging’et lazaro, kiwal bek koek divai (He raised Lazarus & changed water to wine)
Kipchenyak ne birir (He who parted the Red Sea…)

(Chorus)

Refrain: Sobei Jesu, ak mamitei kiy ne temenen o
(Jesus lives, and nothing is impossible for Him)

Kiichengate kerichek kolenjin daktari mami
(You’ve searched for cure, the doctors says there’s none)
Kiichengate boisiek kelenjin mamitei boisio
(You’ve looked for work and been told there’s none)
Kiibet lagoguk, kibet eng’ (?) ak magosomanet
(You’ve lost your children to the world)
Kas amwaun, kas amwaun, ale: angen ale
(Listen as I tell you that I know that)
Sobei, Sobei Jesu (He lives, Jesus lives)
