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 Lingala)

Tongo etana, butu eyinda eh (The Dawn is breaking, wake up)
Kembo na nzambe, etondi mokili iii (God’s glory, is going around the world)
Batunaka ngai, wapi nzambe na yo (The world asks me, where is your God?)
Nzambe na ngai, afandi na nkembo o okumama yahweh (I say my God is seated in glory, Oh Yahweh, be praised!)

Chorus:
Eh Yahweh, eh yahweh kumama (kumama yahweh) (Yahweh be praised)
Eh yahweh, eh yahweh kumama (oh kumama yahweh) (Yahweh be praised)
eh yahweh eh yahweh kumama (Yahweh be praised)
eh yahweh eh yahweh kumama (Yahweh be praised)

Na mokilli batunaka ngai, wapi nzambe na yo (I was asked, where is your God?)
Nayanoli na lolendo, avandi na nkembo (And with pride, I replied that He lives in glory)
Engambe mobali, nzambe oyo azongaka sima te (He is valiant, this God who will stop at nothing)
Tika na netola yo, makasi na ngai  (The let me magnify Him, for He is my strength)

(Chorus)

Wuta na yeba masiya, posa ya mokili esila ngai (As I know the Messiah, I’m not attracted by this world)
namela may’a bomoyi, azipa libulu’a motema (I drank the water of life and the emptiness in my heart was filled)
natika koluka luka bipayi binso, nazua oyo ya motuya (I will stop searching , for I found my treasure)
pauni na ngai ya talo, masiya Yesu na ngai (My treasure and my precious stones, is my Lord Jesus Christ)

(Chorus)

Nzamb’eyo baluba babengi panda njila, akelaka nzela ata n’ebale
(This God that the Baluba (tribe) call “Panda Njila,” (the God) who creates a road even through a sea (river))
soki okome na suka, tshela nde yesu motema
(When you feel has exhausted and no hope, it is in Him that you must put all your faith)
moning’oy’akosaka te, asalaka te pe te proud
(He is the friend who never betrays and is always available when needed)
Luka ye butua pe moyi, aza n’eyano na yo oh kumama yahweh eeh
(Seeking from morning till evening, he has the solution your problem)

(Chorus)
