(Languages: English, Zulu)

Ngifuna Wena, ngifuna Wena (I’m thirsting for You)
Ngiguna Wena Nkosi Yam’, ngifuna Wena (I’m thirsting for You my Lord)
Ngenthliziyo yam’, ngifuna Wena (My heart is, thirsting for You)
Umpefumulo wam’, ofuna Wena (My soul is thirsting for You)

Refrain:
Ngifuna Wena, ngifuna Wena (I’m thirsting for You)
Ngiguna Wena Nkosi Yam’, ngifuna Wena (I’m thirsting for You, my Lord)
Ngifuna Wena, ngifuna Wena (I’m thirsting for You)
Ngifuna Wena, Thixo wam’, ngifuna Wena (I’m thirsting for You, my God)
Ngenthliziyo yam’, ngifuna Wena (My heart is, thirsting for You)
Umpefumulo wam’, ofuna Wena (My soul is thirsting for You)

Lamele Wena, lamele Wena (I’m longing for you)
Lamele Wena, Nkosi yam’, lamele Wena (I’m longing for you, my Lord)
Lamele Wena, Lamele Wena (I’m longing for you)
Lamele Wena, Thixo wam’, Lamele Wena (I’m longing for you, my God)
Ngenthliziyo yam’, lamele Wena (My Heart; is longing for you)
Umpefumulo wam’, lamele Wena (My soul; is longing for You)

This is our prayer:
Njengendluzela yomel’amanzi (As the deer longs for water)
Ka njalo no umpefumulo wami’ ufuna Wena (So my soul longs for you, oh God)
Ungxanele wena nkosi (I thirst for you, my God)
As the deer longs and pants for the streams of water
So my soul longs for you, oh God
I thirst for God; for the Living God
Just to be in your presence
I am seeking you alone – let your presence come
And saturate me and drench me
Every part of me: Make me new
Let Your Spirit come, and move within me
Fill me once again, ’cause I need You
For you are the God who … me
In your presence your reveal Your light, and your Faithfulness
You lead me, and you have called me back

I’m thirsting for you, I’m thirsting for You
I’m thirsty only for you Lord, I’m thirsting for You
Keeper of my Soul, I am thirsting for you
… of my Heart, I’m thirsting for You
Healer of my Soul, I’m thirsting for you

(Sung in Zulu)
(Song 1 (Here) | Song 2)

Refrain:
Igama elithi, Jesu, Jesu, Jesu (No other name but Jesus)
Igama elihle, (The name is my satisfaction)
Liyanganelisa Lingihlabelelisa (It makes me sing and say I’m satisfied)

That’s why I say alikho, alikho
Alikho igama elinje
Ngoba liyanganelisa lel’ igama(It makes me sing, this name)
Liyanganelisa lel’ igama (It makes me want to sing, this name)
It makes me want to sing x3
Igam’ elithi Jesu(No other name but Jesus)

(Refrain)

Lingithatha lapha, Lingibeka lapha (It took me from here, and raised me here)
Lingisusa la, O lingibeka lena (It rescued me, and established me)
Liyanganelisa Lingihlabelelisa (It makes me sing and say I’m satisfied) x2

When I’m sick I call on this name
When I’m happy; I call the name of Jesus
When I’m sick in my body; call on the name of Jesus
It’s the only Name

Liyanganelisa Lingihlabelelisa (It makes me sing and say I’m satisfied) x?

Hlabelela, hlabelela, hlabelela (Sing, sing, sing)
Njengenyoni entle hlabelela (Like a beautiful bird, sing)

When you’re feeling sick hlabelela (Sing)
When you’re feeling down hlabelela (Sing)
When you’re feeling up hlabelela (Sing)
Liyanganelisa Lingihlabelelisa (It makes me sing and say I’m satisfied) x2

Song 1 | Song 2 | Song 3 (here)

Kule minyak’ engaka ngidlal’ ukuhluphek’ emhlabeni | (All these years I’ve been poor)
Kule minyak’ engaka ngilal’ usiz’ emhlabeni |  (All these years I slept with sorrow)
Kant’ uNkulunkulu uphambi kwami  | (Yet the Lord was in front of me)
Uphambi kwami Uyangihlolel’ emadlelwen’ aluhlaza | (He leads me to green pastures)

Kule minyak’ engaka ngidlal’ ukuhluphek’ emhlabeni | (All these years I’ve been poor)
Kule minyak’ engaka ngilal’ usiz’ emhlabeni |  (All these years I slept with sorrow)
Kant’ uJehova uphambi kwami, Uphambi kwami | (Yet the Lord was in front of me)
Uyanginqobela njal’ izitha zami | (He always defeats my enemies)

Ngazula ngazula ngazula |  (I searched, and searched, and searched)
Ngamihla le ngifuna le nalena | (Everyday, looking for this and that)
Kant’ ukhon’ ongithandayo | (Yet there’s someone who loves me) x2
(Repeat)

Refrain:
UNkulunkulu uyangithanda | (The Lord loves me)
Bengingazi uyangithanda nam | (I didn’t know He loves me too)
Uyangithanda | (He loves me)
Kant’ ubathanda bonke abantu | (And He loves everyone)
(Repeat)

Kant’ uJehova mkhulu kangaka kimi | (How great is the Lord to me)
Uyaz’ uJehova ubonis’ ubukhulu bakhe kimi | (The Lord shows His greatness in me)
Ngiyobonga ngithini na?|  (How can I repay?)
Ngiyobonga ngithini na kuye? | (How can I repay Him?)
(Repeat)

Wangikhiph’ eGipite ezweni lobugqila | (He took me out of Egypt the land of slavery)
Wangifak’ ekukhanyeni | (And placed me in the light)
Kuyakhanya manje |  (The light shines now) x2
(Repeat)
