Unikumbuke Baba, (Father remember me)
Unapowazuru wengine naomba unikumbuke

Usinipite Yesu (Do not pass me by Jesus)

Usinipite (Do not pass me by) x2

Mnyonge mimi dhaifu mimi, unikumbuke
(The weak and wretched me, remember me)
Na mama utaka kunyonyesha, umkumbuke
(The barren mother yearning for children, remember her)
Ona huyo asiye na kazi, mkumbuke

Lazima na wajane wanalia, uwakumbuke

Na mwingine huyu ataka elimu, umkumbuke

Bwana wa viumbe vyote (Lord over all creations)
Muumba wa mbingu na dunia (The Creator of heaven and earth)
Twakuomba kwa unyenyekevu utupe hekima na busara
(We humbly pray to grant us wisdom and knowledge)
Sisi waja wako tuliokusanyika hapa

(Sung in Swahili)

Bwana ni mwokozi wangu (The Lord is my savior)
Tena ni kiongozi wangu (And He is my Leader)
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana (He loves me today even more than yesterday)
Baraka zake hazikwishi (His Blessings are unending)
Si kama binadamu habadiliki (He is not like man, to change)
Ananipenda Leo kuliko jana (He loves me today, more than yesterday)

Kuliko jana, kuliko jana (More than yesterday )
Yesu unipende leo, kuliko jana (Jesus love me today, more than yesterday)
Kuliko jana, kuliko jana (More than yesterday )
Yesu unipende leo, kuliko jana (Jesus love me today, more than yesterday)

Si nakuomba Mungu uwasamehe (Forgive them, God I pray)
Wangalijua jinsi unanipenda mimi wasingalinisema (If they knew how You loved me they’d be quiet)
Na maadui wangu, ninawaombea (To my opposers I pray )
Maisha marefu wazidi kukuona ukinibariki (For long life that they may see Your blessing to me)

Ujue binadamu ni watu wa ajabu sana (Human beings are shocking)
Walimkana Yesu mara tatu kabla jogoo kuwika (They denied Jesus three times before the rooster crowed)
Ujue binadamu ni watu wa ajabu sana (Humans are shocking)
Walimsulubisha Yesu masiya bila kusita (They crucified Jesus savior with no hesitations)

(Refrain)

Bridge:
Wewe ndo nategemea (It is You I rely upon )
Kufa kuponea baba nakutegemea (Life or death Father I rely upon you)
Chochote ‘kitanikatsia (Nothing will prevent me)
Kuingia mbinguni hutan’ondolea (From entering heaven )

(Refrain)

(Bridge)

(Sung in Swahili)

Baba naomba kibali Chako (Father I ask for Your approval)
Yesu naomba ushirika Wako (Jesus I pray for Your fellowship)
Masiya naomba kibali Chako (Messiah I pray for your approval)
Kibali Chako, kwa uimbaji wangu (Your approval for my singing)
Kibali Chako, kwa huduma yangu (Your approval for my ministry)

Nishikilie nisianguke Baba (Father Hold me that I may not fall)
Natamani nikae na wewe maishani (I desire to abide with Youu in life)
Ninapoimba uwepo wako ushuke Baba (When I sing, may your presence come)
Nisiwe na kiburi ndani yangu nitumie Baba
(That I should not harbour any boast, use me Father)
Kama ndabihu iliyosafi Mbele zako, nitumie Yesu
(As a worthy offering before You, use me Jesus)

Naona mbingu zikifunguka katika kuabudu (I see the heavens open in worship)
Naona sifa zikitanda dunia yote (I see praises spreading across the world)
Najitoa kama dhabihu nitumie Baba (I give myself as an offering, use me Father)
Wewe ni mwema sana umetukuka (You are good, You are exalted)
Hakuna kama wewe (There is no one like you)
Wewe ni mwema sana umetukuka (You are good, You are exalted)
Hakuna kama wewe (There is no one like you)

Naona mbingu zikifunguka katika kuabudu (I see the heavens open in worship)
Naona sifa zikitanda dunia yote (I see praises spreading across the world)
Naona mbingu zikifunguka katika kuabudu (I see the heavens open in worship)
Naona sifa zikitanda dunia yote (I see praises spreading across the world)

Nishikilie nisianguke Baba (Father hold me that I may not fall)
Ukiniacha nitamezwa na dunia (If you abandon me, I’ll be swallowed by the world)
Naomba unishikilie wokovu wangu (I pray for You to hold my salvation)
Naomba unishikilie imani yangu (I pray for You to hold my faith)

Achilia kibali chako ndani yangu (Release your approval within me)
Achilia uwepo wako ndani yangu (Release your presence within me)
Achilia ushindi wako juu yangu (Release your victory on me)
Achilia amani yako juu yangu (Release your peace on me)
Achilia kibali chako ndani yangu (Release your approval within me)
Achilia uwepo wako ndani yangu (Release your presence within me)

(Verse 1)

Naona mbingu zikifunguka katika kuabudu (I see the heavens open in worship)
Naona sifa zikitanda dunia yote (I see praises spreading across the world)
Naona mbingu zikifunguka katika kuabudu (I see the heavens open in worship)
Naona sifa zikitanda dunia yote (I see praises spreading across the world)

Ndio (Yes) Lyrics by Gloria Muliro

(Sung in Swahili)

Ingelikuwa Mungu anauliza mwanadamu (If God were to ask a man)
Jinsi ya kumtendea mwanadamu (How to do to a fellow man)
Basi mimi nisingekuwa jinsi nilivyo (Then I would not be how I am)
Hata tena nisingekuwa mahali nilipo (And I would not be where I am)
Ungeambiwa sifai, wangekukanya vikali
(You would’ve been told I’m not good, They would’ve reproved You)
Ungekumbushwa dhambi zangu za kale
(You would have been reminded of my past sins)
Unabariki unayependa, unabariki unavyopenda
(You bless those you favor, You bless as you prefer)

Refrain:
Nahitaji ndio yako yesu tu (I need your yes only Jesus)
Nahitaji ndio yako yesu tu (I need your yes only Jesus)
Ninataka ndio yako Yesu tu (I want your yes only Jesus)
Ndio yako itanisimamisha (Your Yes will establish me)
Ndiyo yako ndiyo itanifungulia milango (Your yes will open doors for me)

Hakuna sikio lenye funiko jamani (There is covered ear)
Wala sijaona jicho lenye pazia (And I have not seen a curtained eye)
Adui zako wangelikuwa na uwezo, (If your enemies had the ability)
Wangefumba macho, wangefunika masikio
(They would’ve shut their eyes, and covered their ears)
Wasikuone ukiwa juu, wasisikie umebarikiwa
(That they will not see you lifted, or hear your blessings)
Meza utaandaliwa mbele yao
(A table for you will be prepared before them)
Utakula, utakunywa mbele yao (You will eat and drink before them)
Nasema ndio, ndio ya Bwana (I say yes, The Lord’s “yes”)

(Refrain)

Bridge:
Yesu usiposema ndio, mali yangu, akili zangu hazitaweza
(Jesus If you don’t say yes; my possessions, my mind will not be able)
Bwana sema, sema ndio, yatosha (Lord say, say yes, it is enough)

(Refrain)

Mwema (Good) Lyrics by Mercy Masika

(Sung in Swahili)

Wako mwana ukamtuma, duniani  (You sent your child to earth)
Kisa na maana nipate uzima jamani (That I should receive salvation)

Ishara kwamba unanipenda zaidi (A sign that you love me more)
Hivyo nishaelewa sifa nitakupa zaidi (I know to give you more praise)

Refrain:
Na siwezi jizuia, kusema wako wema
(And I shall not stop myself from proclaiming your goodness)
Na sio kama najigamba, umenitenda mema
(It is not that I boast for myself, you have been good to me)
(Repeat)
Umekuwa mwema kwangu (You have been good to me)

Umenitoa gizani, nilipokuwa nimeshikwa mateka
(You removed me from darkness, where I was held prisoner)
Ukanipa tumaini, kwako nikajificha
(You gave me hope, And I hid myself in You)
Sasa nitakupa nini, iwe sawa na yale umenitenda?
(What shall I give You, equal to what you have done for me?)
Hakuna ila moyoni, sifa nitakuimbia
(Nothing. Only in my heart, I will sing Your praises)

Ilikugharimu, msalabani unifie
(It cost You to die on the cross for me)
Hivyo inanibidi, sifa nikuimbie
(Therefore I have to sing your praises)
Wema wako niseme, ili na wengine wakujue
(To tell of Your goodness, that others may know You)
Wote waungane nami, na wazee ishirini na nne
(That all may join me, together with the twenty-four elders)

(Refrain)
