(Sung in Swahili)

Chorus:
Maneno, ya kinywa changu (The Words of my mouth)
Wacha yatawaliwe, na wewe Bwana (Let them be ruled by you Lord)
Maneno, ya kinywa changu (The Words of my mouth)
Wacha yatawaliwe, na wewe Bwana (Let them be ruled by you Lord)

Verse 1:
Ninaponena, juu ya maisha yangu (When I speak of my life)
Ninene ya baraka, si kulaani (Let me speak for blessings not curses)
Nimebarikiwa, imeinuliwa (I have been blessed, I have been lifted up)
Maana kunayo nguvu, katika maneno (Because there is power in words)
Ingawaje, hali nilioko (Even though my current situation)
Ni ya kuhuzunisha, na kuhangaisha (Is pitiful and desperate)
Nitabiri mema, tena mazuri (Let me prophesy good things)
Maana kunayo nguvu, katika maneno (Because there is power in words)

(Chorus)

Verse 2:
Kazi, ya mikono yangu (The work of my hands)
Wacha ibarikiwe, na wewe Bwana Let it be blessed by you Lord)
Niamkapo, na nilalapo (When I awake, and when I sleep)
Wacha nilindwe, na wewe Bwana (Let me be guarded by you Lord)

(Chorus)

Verse 3:
Bwana naomba, yote nisemayo (Lord I pray, that all I say)
Uwe umenipaka, yawe baraka (Should be annointed, and be a blessing)
Uimbaji wangu, utawaliwe nawe (My singing, Let it be ruled by you)
Ninene yote, yawe baraka (So that all I say, will be a blessing)

(Chorus)
