Shida nyingi za nizunguka
Oh zaduniam baya hizi
Bwana yesu atanipanya o nia ko-e
E siku ile

Bwana wangu O bwana wangu, O bwana wangu, bwana wangu
Unioshe e unioshe oniwe safi
Makoni pako

 

Approximate Translation

Though my troubles may be many,
My lord comforts and guides me

Oh my Master,
Wash me clean with your sight
