Mwanjitile (You Called Me) – Lyrics

Mwanjitile Akale (You Called Me Long Ago) – by Suwilanji

CHORUS

Mwanjitile akale
You called  me long ago
Lesa uwaluse, iseni munkakule
Merciful Lord, come and deliver me
Umweo wandi waliluba mufyesonde
My soul is lost in worldly ways
Isuleni amenso yandi ayakumupashi
Open my spiritual eyes

(Repeat x 2)

1.
Naipela, naileta kuli imwe
I offer myself, I bring myself before You
Insansa shandi namano fyaba muli imwe
My joy, I realize, is in You
Filye fyo mwandaile, Tata, ndelolela:
For the promises you made to me, Father, I await:
Ati nganaipela kuli imwe
That if I dedicate myself to You
Nataluka nakumilimo ilya iyakale, iya bubi
And distance myself from my old, evil ways,
Imwe mukanjita umwana wenu, Tata
You will regard me as your child, Father.
Fumyeni umutima uyu uwakosa muli ine
Take this hardened heart from me
Mbuleni Tata ifyo ndi, naisa
Father, take me the way I am, I come

 

(CHORUS X 3)
2.
Mwalishiba imibombele yandi, Lesa ee
You know my works, oh God
Namano yandi yaliko akale
And all my old ways
Lintu nshilabako, Lesa Mwalinsalile
Before I was born, Lord, You chose me
Nengeni ukumona ifya bukulu bwenu
Make me see your greatness
Muncite mbe ulubuto lwakubengashima
Make me a shining light
Muncite mbe iluba, Yaweh
Make me a flower, Lord
Nciteni mbe ulwimbo lupya
Make me a new song
Kuti ndemwimbila ishamalumbo yenu
That I may sing songs of praise to You.

 

(CHORUS X 3)


Isuleni amenso yandi …
Open my eyes …

Ndefwaya ukumona …
I want to see …
