Mbeu Ya Ngai – P Jey Kongo

First of all, don’t even ask me why he writes his name like that. All I know is that he has an unmistakable voice, one I can tell from miles away. I have always loved it. Then I heard this song on the same DJ Dolls mix I heard every other song I have published here so far. I fell in love. Second of all, this song quotes Mephibosheth’s story, 2 Samuel 9. It made reread it and feel it in a different light. You will also notice that there is an ‘f’ in the Kikuyu translation for Mephibosheth. I guess them translators had no choice. Remember there is no ‘f’ actually spelt out in Kikuyu.

So here goes, reviving the series:

Rwimbo rwa Kiumia

Mbeu ya Ngai ndikoma, ooohh, ona ingirangiririo, eh, ndikoma
Rugendo ni rurahiaga, weru naguo ugakiriria,
Ukahiuha makiria ukaga handu he kigunye,
No kirigiriro kiria kihithitwo ngoro-ini thiini,
Gigatuma umiririe nginya ugagikinyira kioneki

 

Mbeu ya Ngai, ndikoma
Mbeu ya Ngai, ndikoma
Ona igikanyagirirwo, ona riua rimiarere,
Ihinda ria yo riakinya, no nginya igathunduka

Ngai na ma niahandite mbeu thiini wa Mefiboshethu,
Na gutiri na mathina anagerera magiagiririe,
Muthenya ni wainyire mbeu iyo igithunduka,
Ngai akimuririkana, ona umuthi no tuthomaga

Mbeu ya Ngai ndikoma, ooohh, ona ingirangiririo, eh, ndikoma

Ngoro yanarituhirwo na ikahotwo ni matarania,
Na ciuria mirongo miingi na ndingiona munjokeria,
Njirigiriire gukona ciugo ciaku igikinyanira,
Na mbeu iria wahandire thiini wakwa igithunduke

Ona ungikorwo ni ukinyite muthiya waku we ndukamake
Mbeu iria Ngai ahandire thiini waku no ikariruka
Ona ungikorwo nduri kindu muhuko-ini we ndukamake
Mbeu iria Ngai ahandire thiini waku no ikariruka
Ona okorwo ndungiaria kiugo kiuguikane ni kuhuthio
Mbeu iria Ngai ahandire thiini waku no ikariruka
Ona ndukage gwithikira cagarara ni kumenya
Mbeu iria Ngai ahandire thiini waku no ikariruka
Maundu maingi na mathaka Ngai akuigiire ndukamake
Mbeu iria Ngai ahandire thiini waku no ikariruka
Kinya na hinya na ucamba kenerera ni kumenya
Mbeu iria Ngai ahandire thiini waku no ikariruka
Oooooooohhhhhhhh!
Mbeu iria Ngai ahandire thiini waku no ikariruka

God’s seed will not die, ooohh, even when trampled upon, eh, it never dies
The journey becomes long, the wilderness expands,
It becomes too hot with no shade anywhere,
But that hope that is hidden inside your heart,
Causes you to take heart until you reach your goal

God’s seed will not die
God’s seed will not die
Even when trampled upon, Or the sun scorches,
When its time comes, it must sprout

God for sure sowed a seed inside Mephibosheth,
And no trials he went through stopped him
The day came for the seed to sprout
God remembered him, even today we read about it
 

God’s seed will not die, ooohh, even when trampled upon, eh, it never dies

The heart has been burdened with puzzles,
And tens of questions with no one to answer
I hope to see Your words come to pass
And the seed you planted inside me sprout

(Very very nice Kikuyu climax. LOL)

Even if you have reached your end do not worry
The seed that God planted in you will spring to life
Even if you have nothing in your pocket don’t worry
The seed that God planted in you will spring to life
Even if you cannot speak a word that will be heard because people don’t take you seriously
The seed that God planted in you will spring to life
Do not even think of cowering, shine because you know
The seed that God planted in you will spring to life
God has many beautiful things in store, don’t worry
The seed that God planted in you will spring to life
Step confidently, with courage, rejoice in knowing
The seed that God planted in you will spring to life
Oooooooohhhhhhhh!
The seed that God planted in you will spring to life (Sing this line like a hundred times hivi. LOL)

Sema Joel Osteen in the house baby! *falls off chair*
