(Sung in Swahili)

Chorus:
Yahwe Uhimidiwe, (Yahweh be praised)
uaminifu wako umejulikana (Your faithfulness is known)
Kwa mataifa yote ya ulimwengu, Yahweh (By all the nations, Yahweh)
Yahwe Uhimidiwe, (Yahweh be praised)
uaminifu wako umejulikana (Your faithfulness is known)
Kwa mataifa yote ya ulimwengu, Yahweh (By all the nations, Yahweh)

Verse 1:
Uliumba lakini haukumbwa, (You created, but you were not created)
Jina lako jemedari, ninakuinua(You are the General, I lift you up)
Jina lako mkombozi, ninakupenda(You are the savior, I love you)
Umefuta jina langu kwenye hukumu(You have erased my name from the judgement)
Umefuta jina langu kwenye laana (You have erased my name from the curse)
Ndio maana ninakuina Mungu wangu ee(That is why I raise you up my God)
Kwa sababu siko tena chini ya dhambi ee(Because I am no longer under sin)

(Chorus)

Verse 2:
Kama si wewe Yesu ningeitwa nani?(If not for you Jesus, what would my name be?)
Kama si wewe Yesu Ningekuwa wapi?(If not for you Jesus, where would I be?)
Kama si wewe Yesu ningeenda wapi?(If not for you Jesus, where would I go?)
Kama si wewe Baba ningesema nini?(If not for you father, what would I say?)
Asante Bwana Yesu kwa ukombozi(Thank you Lord Jesus for the redemption)
Asante Bwana Yesu Kwa wokovu(Thank you Lord Jesus for the salvation)
Ndio maana nakuinua Mungu wangu(That is why I lift you up my God)
Umeniokoa mimi kwa damu ya bei(You have saved me from the price of blood)
Umenitendea mambo ya ajabu(You have done great things for me)
Ninakuinua Baba yahweh(I lift you up my father Yahweh)

(chorus)

Verse 3:
Majina yote mazuri ni yako baba(All the good names are yours father)
Unaitwa Jehova shammah, ninakupenda(You are Jehovah Shammah, I love you)
Unaitwa Jehova Jehova Jireh, ninakupenda(You are Jehovah Jireh, I love you)
Unaitwa Jehova Nissi bendera ya ushindi wangu(You are Jehova Nissi, my glorious banner)
Asante Baba yangu kwa upendo wako(Thank you my father for your love)
Hakuna Mwingine kama wewe(There is no one else like you)
Hakuna Mwingine kama wewe(There is no one else like you)
Ninakupenda Baba yangu(I love you my father)

(Chorus)

Umbali tumetoka, na mahali tumefika (Thus far we have come from, and where we are now)
Ndio maana ninatambua, kwamba wewe ni ebeneza (It is why I confess, that you are Ebenezer)
Sio kwa uwezo wangu,ila ni kwa uwezo wako (It is not because of my might, but by yours)
Mahali nimefika, acha nikushukuru (Thus far I have reached, let me thank you)
EE Bwana umenisaidia, nifike mahali nimefika (Oh Lord you have helped me, to reach where I am)
Bwana wewe ni ebeneza, maishani mwangu oo (Lord you are the Ebenezer in my life)

Ninataka Ebeneza, nijenge juu yako (I want to build on you Ebenezer)
Ninataka Ebeneza, uwe msingi yangu (I want you Ebenezer to be my foundation)
Jiwe langu la pembeni, nakutamani sana (My cornerstone, I desire you so much)
Jiwe langu la thamani, nakuhitaji sana (My valuable rock, I need you so much)
Oo Ebeneza, jiwe langu (Oh Ebenezer, my rock)

Ninataka maisha yangu, yajengwe juu yako (I want my life, to be founded on you)
NInataka ndoa yangu, ijengwe juu yako baba (I want my marriage, to be founded on you)
Ndoa zilizojengwa juu yako yahwe, hazivunjiki kamwe (because marriages built on you, can never be broken)
Nyumba zilizojengwa juu yako yahweh hazivunjiki kamwe (Homes founded on you Yahweh, can never be broken)
Ninataka uimbaji wangu baba, ujengwe juu yako (I want my singing Father, to be founded on you)
Maana wewe ni sauti yangu, wewe ni uzima wangu (For you are my voice, you are my life)

Ninataka Ebeneza, nijenge juu yako (I want to build on you Ebenezer)
Ninataka Ebeneza, uwe msingi yangu (I want you Ebenezer to be my foundation)
Jiwe langu la pembeni, nakutamani sana (My cornerstone, I desire you so much)
Jiwe langu la thamani, nakuhitaji sana (My valuable rock, I need you so much)
Oo Ebeneza, jiwe langu (Oh Ebenezer, my rock)

Ebeneza lang’a, libanga nangai ya tala
Ole kidya mape wolo papa ee kati na bomoyi nanga
Nzambe na kumisio, mokote ko nani nayo
Bisika nako milele o yahwe, ezali sela makasi nayo

Ninataka Ebeneza, nijenge juu yako (I want to build on you Ebenezer)
Ninataka Ebeneza, uwe msingi yangu (I want you Ebenezer to be my foundation)
Jiwe langu la pembeni, nakutamani sana (My cornerstone, I desire you so much)
Jiwe langu la thamani, nakuhitaji sana (My valuable rock, I need you so much)
Oo Ebeneza, jiwe langu (Oh Ebenezer, my rock)

Ebenezer ni jiwe langu, jiwe langu la msingi (Ebenezer is my rock, my cornerstone)
Mahali nimefika leo, Ni kwa ajili yako ebeneza (Thus far I have come, is because of you Ebenezer)
Mawe mengi yako hapa chini ya jua (There are a lot of rocks under the sun)
kuna dhahabu, kuna almasi Kuna mawe hata sijui majina yake (There is gold, there is diamond, and others I can’t name)
Lakini hakutawahi kuwa jiwe kama ebeneza (But there will never be a rock like Ebenezer)

(Sung in Swahili) – The Hymn “Abide With Me” by Henry Francis Lyte

Kaa nami ni usiku sana (Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;)
Usiniache gizani bwana (The darkness deepens; Lord with me abide.)
Msaada wako haukomi (When other helpers fail and comforts flee,)
Nili pekee yangu, kaa nami (Help of the helpless, O abide with me.)

Siku zetu hazikawii kwisha (Swift to its close ebbs out life’s little day;)
Sioni la kunifurahisha (Earth’s joys grow dim; its glories pass away;)
Hakuna ambacho hakikomi (Change and decay in all around I see;)
Usiye na mwisho, kaa nami (O Thou who changest not, abide with me.)

(Prayer)

Nina haja nawe kila saa (I need Thy presence every passing hour.)
Sina mwingine wa kunifaa (What but Thy grace can foil the tempter’s power?)
Mimi nitaongozwa na nani (Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be?)
Ila wewe bwana, kaa nami (Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me.)

Sichi neno uwapo karibu (I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless;)
Nipatalo lote si taabu? (Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness.)
Kifo na kaburi haviumi (Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory?)
nitashinda kwako, kaa nami (I triumph still, if Thou abide with me.)

(Prayer)

Nilalapo nikuone wewe (Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes;)
Gizani mwote nimulikie (Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies.)
NUru za mbinguni hazikomi (Heaven’s morning breaks, and earth’s vain shadows flee;)
Siku zangu zote kaa nami (In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me.)

(Prayer)
