Israel Mbonyi – Sikiliza Lyrics

He has forgiven me
His shed blood
Damu yake iliyomwagika

It has overcome all judgment
Imeshinda hukumu yote

It has set me free
Imeniweka huru tele

I sing I am forgiven
Ninaimba nimesamehewa

He has set me free
Ameniwaka huru télé

I sing he has forgiven me
Ninaimba amenisamehe
1. Holiness and Godliness he stripped
1.Utakatifu na Umungu alivua

He agreed to reveal the book
Kakubali kufunua kile kitabu

Come find the lost
Kaja tafuta aliyepotea

That’s who I crucified
Huyo ni mi niliyemsulubisha
There were many indictments
Nyalaka za mashitaka zilikuwa nyingi

All Babylon knew my name
Babiloni yote ilijua jina langu

Except after his death
Ila baada ya kifo chake

Jesus’ blood overcame judgment
Damu yake Yesu ilishinda hukumu
2. Listen to the mountain and let me tell you
2.Sikiliza we mlima nikwambie

I have erected a memorial banner
Nimesimika bendela ya ukumbusho

I will come back to witness you,
Nitarudi nikushuhudie,

He changed me and gave me a new name
amenibadisha akanipa jina jipya

I will not remove my foot from the pool of Jesus’ blood
Sitaomdoa mguu wangu katika hilo bwawa la damu yake Yesu
3. I am no longer dependent on me
3.Mimi sio tena wanayenitegemea

But what God wants is what I want
Bali yule Mungu anae nitakia

He changed me with his blood
Menibadilisha kwa damu yake

He deleted the old names and gave me a new name
Amefuta majina ya kale akanipa jina jipya

Many thought I was the old one
Wengi walifikiri mi ni yule wa kale

Many thought I was still doing the old thing
Wengi walidhani bado natenda ya kale

Listen, I have been changed, he deleted the old names and gave me a new name
Sikilizeni nimebadilishwa, amefuta majina ya kale akanipa jina jipya
