Hakuna (Nothing) lyrics by Jemimah Thiong’o

1 Comment



(Sung in Swahili)

Hakuna linalomshinda,(Nothing is impossible to Him)
Yesu mkombozi wangu (Jesus my Savior)
Soma Bibilia utaona,(Read the Bible and you shall see)
Yote Bwana Yesu anaweza(All that Jesus is able to do)
Hakuna lililo ngumu kwake anaweza(Nothing is impossible to him)

Chorus:

Hakuna, hakuna,(Nothing, nothing)
Hakuna linalomshinda (Nothing is impossible to Him)
Yote bwana yesu anaweza (Lord Jesus is able to do all)
Aliwatoa jasho makuhani (He awed the pharisees)
Na wazee hekaluni (And the elders at the temple)

Magonjwa yakulemea, (Illness is overwhelming you?)
Yesu aliponya hata ukoma (Jesus cured even leprosy)
Vipofu viwete na viziwi (The blind, the lame and the deaf)
Bwana yesu aliponya (All of them Jesus healed)
Isitoshe alifufua lazaro anaweza(He even raised Lazarus from the dead)

(Chorus)

Ulevi umekulemea, (Is drunkedness overwhelming you?)
Aligeuza macho kuwa divai (He turned water into wine)
wapoteza macho kwa kumikumi, (You lose your sight from cheap spirits)
Waelekea poteza maisha (You’ll end up losing your life)
Ukimwamini hautaona kiu ya pombe (Believe in Him and you won’t thirst for alcohol)

(Chorus)

Hakuna linalomshinda, (Nothing is impossible to Him)
Njaa kwa yesu sio tisho (Famine to Jesus is not a threat)
Aliwapasha elfu tano kwa mikate miwili (He fed 5000 with 2 loaves)
Kabaki kuokota elfu saba (And had seven basketfuls of leftovers)

(Chorus)

Hakuna linalomshinda, (Nothing is impossible to Him)
Baada ya kutufia msalabani (After He died for us on the cross)
Aliingia kuzimu yesu, (Jesus entered Hell)
Kanyang’anya shetani funguo (And wrested the keys from Satan)
Kampa ibilisi tetemeko kubwa sana (And caused the devil to fear.)

(Sung in Swahili)

Verse 1:
Nakuuliza shetani umepata wapi mamlaka (I ask you devil, where did you get the permission)
Ya kukamata akili za watu a (To mess with people’s minds)
Wewe umeleta balaa umeingia makanisani (You’ve brought trouble, you have gotten into churches)
Umekamata wababa wanabaka watoto wao (You have made fathers to rape their children)
Umekamata vijana umewatwika ulevi (You have caught young men, and saddled them with alcoholism)
Bila kusahau kina mama, vikao vya masengenyo (Not forgetting mothers, and their gossip)
Sasa nimechoka na mambo yako (I’m tired of your work)
Ewe shetani, nipishe nipite (You satan, let me pass)

Chorus:
Wewe ulimwasi mungu, nipishe nipite (You who defied God, let me pass)
Uliwadanganya adamu na Eva, songea nipite (You deceived Adam and Eve, move and let me pass)
Dunia nzima imeharibika, kwa ujanja wako (The world is destroyed, for your cunning)
WEwe ulimwasi mungu, nipishe nipite(You who defied God, let me pass)
Uliwadanganya Adamu na Eva, songea nipite (You deceived Adam and Eve, move and let me pass)
Dunia nzima imeharibika, kwa ujanja wako (The world is destroyed, for your cunning)
wewe shetani unaambiwa, mwenyeji wa kuzimu (You satan you’ve been ordered, the host of hell)
Sasa nipishe nipite (Now let me pass)

Verse 2:
Hebu nipishe nipite, ninachelewa njiani (Let me pass, I’m getting late)
Yesu yu karibu kurudi, kulichukua kanisa (Jesus is almost returning to take his church)
Kanda unayo nionyesha yote yamepitwa na wakati(Whatever you show me has been passed by time)
Huna ujanja (You can’t fool me)
Kumbuka miaka elfu mbili iliyopita zamani (Remember 2000 years ago)
Yesu aliposhuka kuzimu, akakunyanganya funguo (When Jesus descended to hell, and took the keys)
Funguo za mamlaka (The keys of authority)
Nasema nimechoshwa na mambo yako (I say I am tired of you)
Wewe shetani nipishe nipite (You devil, let me pass)

(Chorus)

Verse 3:
Nakuamuru shetani wewe, nipishe nipite (I order you satan, let me pass)
Wewe umekuwa ni kikwazo kwangu, Kufika mbinguni(You have been my barrier to heaven)
Muda wako umeshakwisha, songea nipite (Your time is up, let me pass)
Sasa haleluya naenda mbinguni, hakuna mashaka (Now Haleluya I’m going to heaven, no worries)
(Repeat)

Verse 4:
Wewe ulishaaniwa, laana milele (You have been cursed forever)
Ulinyanganywa mamlaka na Yesu, Huna ujanja ee (You’re authority was taken by Jesus, you have no more cunning)
Simba wa yuda aliponguruma, mafuriko kuzimu (When the Lion of Judah roars, there is flood in hell)
Sasa haleluya twaenda mbinguni, hatuna mashaka (Now haleluya we are going to heaven, no worries)
(Repeat)

(Chorus)

(Sung in Swahili)

Refrain:
Wanaokudharau siku moja watakusalimia kwa heshima
(Those who despise you, one day will greet you with respect)
(repeat)

Mateso yako ni ya muda tu, Mungu akuandalia ushuhuda
(Your troubles are only for a time, God is preparing a testimony for you)
Daudi Alikuwa mchunga kondoo, Mungu akamwinua kuwa mfalme
(David was a shepherd, God lifted him to be a king)
Leo unaitwa ombaomba, kesho utaitwa mbarikiwa
(Today you are called a beggar, tomorrow you will be called blessed)
Licha unatembea kwa miguu, kesho utaendesha gari
(Inspite of walking, tomorrow you will drive a car)

Chorus:
Nasema watakusalimia, kwa heshima (I say they will greet you, with respect)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Wakati wako wako wa kuinuliwa, ukifika (When your time to be lifted, has come)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They will greet you, with respect)
Wakati wako wa kubarikiwa, ukifika (When your time to be blessed, arrives)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Wakati wako wa kukumbukwa, ukifika (When your time to be remembered arrives)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)

Wanaosema hautaolewa, watashuhudia ndoa yako
(Those who say you will not be married, will witness your wedding)
Pale utakapovalishwa pete, watashikwa na kigugumizi
(When you are given a ring, they will be speechless)
Wanaosema wewe ni tasa, watakuona ukinyonyesha
(Those who say you are barren, will see you breastfeeding)
Na Mungu alimkumbuka Sara, hata wewe utakumbukwa
(God remembered Sarah, he will remember you as well)

(Chorus)

Wakuu wa Mungu wetu ni Ebeneza, hata sasa yupo
(Our great God is Ebenezer, even now he is here)
Msaada wetu wa karibu, mwite ataitika
(Our close help, call him and He’ll answer)

Jifunze kuwa na subira, utafanikiwa
(Teach yourself to be patient, and you will succeed)
Sana siku sio gani mama, atakuinua
(Not for much longer mother, he’ll lift you up)
Ona leo wanakuita kikaragosi, kesho watakuita bosi
(Look today they call you useless, tomorrow they’ll call you boss)
Aliyekunyima kadi za harusi, kesho wataomba shela yako
(Those who denied you an invitation, tomorrow will beg for crumbs)
Ona leo wanakupiga kibuti, kesho watakupigia saluti
(Today they kick you out, tomorrow they’ll salute you)

Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Watakupigia magoti, ukifika (They’ll kneel before you, when you arrive)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Walikuona ukilala jalani, ukifika (They saw you sleeping on rubbish, when you arrive)
Kesho watakupata ofisini, kwa heshima (Tomorrow they’ll find you in your office with respect)
Watakusalimia, ukifika (They’ll greet you when you arrive)
Watakusalimia, kwa heshima (They’ll greet you with respect)
Watakupigia saluti, watakusalimia kwa heshima.
(They’ll salute you, they’ll greet you with respect)
