(Non-English part sung in Zulu)

I feel like going on, I feel like going on
Though trials (may) come, on every hand
I feel like going on
(Repeat)

Kuzohlatshelelwa khona (We will sing praises there)
Phezhu/Sitshu Haleluya, sitshu Haleluyah (Saying Halellujah!)
Njengo mfula uhlokoma (Like a mighty river)
Ku dunyiswa iNkosi ngale (We will rejoice praising God in heaven)

Webathandwa yekinhlanhla (Beloved you are lucky/blessed)
Yokukholwa kuyuJesu (To be called sons of Jesus)
Ekuphatha ngezakhizandla (He holds you in his hands)
Akuyise ekhaya ngale (And lead you home on the other side)

(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)
