Siogopi (I’m Not Afraid) Lyrics by Paul Clement


(Sung in Swahili)

Siogopi kuchelewa (I’m not afraid of being late)
Sababu Mungu wangu hachelewi, wala hawai
(Because God does not delay, nor does he ever)
Siogopi mateso yangu (I’m not afraid of my tribulations)
Sababu ye ananipeleka, kwenye ukuu wangu
(For He is taking me to my greatness)
Siogopi kudharauliwa (I’m not afraid of being despised)
Maana ndiko kunakonipa heshima yangu
(Because there is where I receive my honor)
Siogopi adui zangu (I’m not afraid of my enemies)
Maana najua ni adui wa Mungu wangu
(For I know that they are the enemies of my God)
Siogopi hivi vita vyangu (I’m not afraid of my battles)
Maana ndivyo vinaivyonipa ushindi wangu
(For they are they that will bring me my victory)

Refrain:
Siogopi, Siogopi! (I’m not afraid)
Siogopi, Siogopi! (I’m not afraid)
I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid!
I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid! (Repeat)

Nimepewa mamlaka (I have been given authority)
Siogopi nge na nyoka (I’m not afraid of the scorpion or the snake)
N’tawakanyaka vichwa vyao (I shall crush their heads)
Haitanidhuru sumu zao, yaani maneno yao (Their poison will not harm me, meaning their words)
Siogopi kutembea kwenye giza (I’m not afraid of walking in the darkness)
Maana mi ni nuru ninaangaza (For I am the light that lights the way)
Siogopi kusimama juu ya mlima (I’m not afraid if standing on the hill)
Maana najua siwezi sitirika (For I know I shall not be hidden)
Siogopi moto, moto sababu (I am not afraid of the fiery fire, because)
Sababu, lazima nipite mimi dhahabu (I have to pass through to be refined as gold)
Ili nisimame, niwe imara, niwe kinara (So that I can stand, firmly, to be a rock)
Siogopi moto, moto sababu (I’m not afraid of the fiery fire, because)
Sababu, lazima nipite mimi dhahabu (I have to pass through to be refined as gold)
Niwe hodari, niwe jasiri, niwe kamili! (To be strong, to be brave, to be complete!)

(Refrain)

Siogopi, Mungu uko na mimi (I’m not afraid, for God you are with me)
Mungu uko na mimi, Mungu uko na mimi
(God You are with me, You are with me God)
Siogopi, Baba uko na mimi (I’m not afraid, Father You are with me)
Baba uko na mimi, Baba uko na mimi
(Father You are with me, You are with me Father)
Uko na mimi, uko na mimi
(You are with me, You are with me)
