Those who wait for the Lord shall have renewed strength of life.

Chorus

All those who wait for their God shall have renewed strength of life.
O sister, waiting for the Lord shall renew your strength.
(Repeat)

The Lord will renew the life force of all who wait for Him.
(Repeat)
Chorus

Kiswahili

Nafsi yangu yakungoja Bwana
Kuliko walinzi wangojavyo asubuhi
(Repeat)

Chorus: Naam, kuliko walinzi wangojavyo asubuhi Nafsi yangu yakungoja

Wale wote wamgojao Bwana
watafanywa upya Nguvu zao Maishani
(Repeat)

Nguvu zao maishani,wale wote eehee
Ewe dada ukimgoja bwana,
Utafanywa upya nguvu zako maishani

  1. There is a haunting (in the good sense) quality to African music - particularly African Christian music.

    Very nice!
