Bwana ni nani atakayekaa katika hema yako
(Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?)
Bwana ni nani atakayekaa katika hema yako
(Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?)

Nani atakayefanya maskani yake katika kilima chako
(Who may live on your holy mountain?)
Yeye aendaye kwa ukamilifu, pia na kutenda haki
(The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous)
Yeye aendaye kwa ukamilifu, pia na kutenda haki
(The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous)

Maskani zako zapendeza kama nini, eh Bwana wa majeshi (Amin)
(Your dwellings are amazing, Oh Lord of Hosts)
Maskani zako zapendeza kama nini, eh Bwana wa majeshi
(Your dwellings are indescribable, Oh Lord of Hosts)

Heri wakaao nyumbani mwako, daima wanakuhimidi
(Blessed are those who dwell in you, forever they will worship you)
Heri wakaao nyumbani mwako, daima wanakuhimidi (Amin)
(Blessed are those who dwell in you, forever they will praise you)

Bwana ni nani atakayekaa katika hema yako

(Who may live on your holy mountain?)
Yeye aendaye kwa ukamilifu, pia na kutenda haki
(The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous)

Hakika siku moja, siku moja, katika nyumba zako
(For truly one day, one day in your house)
Hakika siku moja, siku moja, katika nyumba zako
(For truly one day, one day in your house)

Ni bora siku moja elfu, bora kuliko elfu
(Are better than a thousand days, better than a thousand)
Ni bora siku moja elfu, bora kuliko elfu
(Are better than a thousand days, better than a thousand)

Bwana ni nani atakayekaa katika hema yako
(Lord, who may dwell in your sacred tent?)
Nani atakayefanya maskani yake katika kilima chako
(Who may live on your holy mountain?)
Yeye aendaye kwa ukamilifu, pia na kutenda haki
(The one whose walk is blameless, who does what is righteous)

(Sung in Swahili – Psalm 35)

Refrain:
Eh Bwana utete nao wanao teta nami (Oh Lord, contend with those who contend with me)
Upigane nao, wanao pigana nami (Fight those who fight against me)(Repeat)

Ushike ngao na kinga usimame, unisaidie (Take up your shield and armor, arise and come to my aid)
Vuta we mkuki uwapige, wanaonifuatia (Brandish your spear against those who pursue me)
Uambie nafsi yangu mimi ni wokovu wako (Say to me “I am your salvation”)
Uwatoe mkuki uwapige, oh wanao nifuatia (Brandish your javelin, against those who pursue me)
Uambie nafsi yangu “mimi ni wokovu wako” (Say to me “I am your salvation”))
Wananiuliza mambo nisiyoyajua (They question me on things I know nothing about)

(Refrain)

Waaibishwe wafedheheshwe (May they be disgraced and put to shame)
Warudishwe nyuma, wanaotafuta nafsi yangu (May they be dismayed, those who plot my ruin)
Wafadhaishwe, wawe kama makapi (May they be like chaff before the wind)
Mbele yao pepo malaika wa Bwana waangushe chini (With the angel of the Lord driving them away)

Wananilipa mabaya, badala ya mema (They repay me evil for good)
Kutwa kucha waniwinda ili niteseke (All day long, they hunt me so that I suffer)
Niko ndani yako niweke eh Mungu wangu (I am in you, preserve me, Oh my God)
Ubavuni mwako nikumbatie, Jehova wangu (Embrace me to your side, my Jehovah)
Mkononi mwako niweke, eh Mungu wangu (Hold me in your hands, Oh my God)
Ubavuni mwako nikumbatie, Jehova wangu (Embrace me to your side, my Jehovah)

(Refrain)

Njia yao iwe giza na utelezi (May their path be dark and slippery)
Malaika wa Bwana, akiwafuatia (With the angel of the Lord pursuing them)
Uharibifu uwapate kwa ghafla (May ruin overtake them by surprise)
Wa uharibifu waanguke ndani yake (May they fall into the pit they hid)
Mimi bure wasinisemange, bure wasinibonge (That they may not speak against me in vain)
Na uovu wao aloficha umnase mwenyewe (May the evil they hid, catch them)
Bila sababu amenichimbia shimo nafsi yangu (Since without cause they dug a pit for me,)
Mifupa yangu yote itasema (All my bones will exclaim)
“Bwana ni nani aliye kama wewe?” (“Who is like you, Lord?”)
Na nafsi yangu itamfurahia Bwana (Then my soul will rejoice in the Lord)

Wapendeza, Bwana wapendeza (You are exalted, Lord be exalted)
Eh Bwana wapendeza (Oh Lord, be exalted)
Katika hili najua utatenda (In this I know you will do)
Nitetee Bwana nitetee (Defend me Lord, defend me)
Eh Bwana nitetee (Oh Lord, defend me)
Katika hili najua utatenda (In this, I know you will do) (Repeat)

(Sung in Swahili)

Chorus:
Nainua macho yangu, niitazame, nitazame milimani
(I lift up my eyes and look to the hills)
Msaada, msaada wangu we watoka wapi Ee ni kwa baba, ni kwa baba
(Where does my help come from? From the Father)
Nainua macho yangu, niitazame, nitazame milimani
(I lift up my eyes and look to the hills)
Msaada, msaada wangu we watoka wapi Ee ni kwa baba, ni kwa baba
(Where does my help come from? From the Father)

Asema njoo, njoo, asema njoo upate pumziko
(He says come, come to my rest)
Asema njoo, jongea, asema njoo upate pumziko
(He says come, come to my rest)
Fadhili zangu ni za milele, huba langu halina kikomo
(My mercies and love are forever)
Mimi ndimi simba wa yuda, mimi ndimi ngome yako
(I am the Lion of Judah, and your stronghold)

(Chorus)

Heri awe nawe, awe nawe, heri awe nawe, mambo yote shwari
(It is good for him to abide in you, and everything will be peaceful)
Heri awe nawe, awe nawe, mambo yote shwari, mikononi mwake
(It is good for him to abide in you, and everything in his hand will be peaceful)
Viumbe vyote vyamtukuza, Mchana kutwa usiku kucha
(All creation praise him, day and night)
Yeye ndiye muweza yote, hakuna limshindalo Mola
(He is all in all, nothing defeats God)

(Chorus)
