(Sung in Swahili)

Wema wako, si kwa wakati wa furaha tu
(Your Goodness, is not only present in times of joy)
Wema wako, pia wakati hata wa majonzi
(Your Goodness is also present in times of grief)
Wema wako, haupimiki, kwa majira fulani tu
(Your Goodness cannot be measured in time)
Wema wako, ni kila wakati, na kila nyakati
(Your Goodness is present at all times, in all seasons)
Hata sasa ni mwema, tunapoimba ni mwema
(Even now He is Good; when we sing He is Good)
Tunapolia ni mwema, tunapocheka ni mwema
(When we weep, he is Good; when we laugh, He is Good)
Tunapopanda ni mwema, tunapovuna ni mwema
(When we plant, He is Good; When we harvest, He is Good)

Refrain:
Wewe ni mwema, u mwema, wewe ni mwema
(You are Good, You are Good, You are Good)
Wewe ni mwema, u mwema, wewe ni mwema (Repeat)
(You are Good, You are Good, You are Good)
Unatupenda x2 Wewe ni mwema (Repeat)
(You love us x2 You are Good)

Wema wako, ni kama mchanga, siwezi kuhesabu
(Your Goodness is like the soil; I cannot count it)
Wema wako, ni kama maji, yanayomiminika bila kukoma,
(Your Goodness is like the water; that flows without ceasing)
Mtu akinge, ama asikinge, hayataacha kutoka
(Should someone obstruct it or not, it will not cease)
Hata sasa ni mwema, tunapoimba ni mwema
(Even now, He is Good; When we sing He is Good)
Tunapolia ni mwema, tunapocheka ni mwema
(When we weep, He is Good; when we laugh, He is Good)

(Refrain)

Mke Mwema (A Virtuous Wife) Lyrics by Bonny Mwaitege

Hapo mwanzo mungu alimwumba Adamu (In the beginning God created Adam)
Bustani ya edeni aitunze (To care for the Garden of Eden)
Baadaye Mungu aliona sio vyema(Then God saw that it was not good)
Adamu awe pekee yake akampa mke mwema(For Adam to be alone, He gave him a wife)
Hapo mwanzooo(In the beginning)

Chorus:

Mke mwema anatoka kwa Bwana(A virtous wife is from the Lord)
Nimemwomba Mungu nangojea(I have asked God, I am waiting) (x2)
Mke mwema aaa (A virtuous wife…)

Kwa akili zangu ni vigumu kutambua (On my own it is hard to determine)
ni nani aliyeumbwa kwa ajili yangu(Who was created for me)
Katika mabinti wengi ni nani(In the midst of all the women, who is it)
Mungu ndiye anajua mke mwema(It is only God knows who)

(Chorus)

Majukumu yananizidi jamani nachoka
Kazi za ndani haziishi mke sina
Majukumu yananizidi jamani nachoka
Kazi za ndani haziishi kazi sina
Nimeshapika deki, Nguo zangu zote chafu
Nimemaliza kufua, vyombo vyote ndani vichafu
Maharage yanaungulia, ndani maji nimeishiwa
Nimeamini mwanaume bila mke hajakamilika
Nimeamini mwanaume bila mke hajakamilika bado

(Chorus)

Ukitafuta chumba cha kupanga kama hujaoa
Unaweza kuzunguka mpaka ukachoka
Ukitafuta chumba cha kupanga kama hujaoa
Unaweza kuzunguka mpaka ukachoka
Kila nyumba unayokwenda unaambiwa
“Vyumba viko, umeoa? kama hujaoa kaka samahani
Hapa hatupangishi vijana ambao bado hawajaoa.” Oh!

(Chorus)
