Lyrics

Nalingi bosembo na mokili.
Nasengi bolamu, naba mama.
Bana balala, malamu, baliya malamu, mayi miso ezalate.
Yoka losambo nanga oyo, to koma kuna pe to tikala kuna endenge wana.
Kimia ezala namokili, pe ebanda nangai.

Nataka amani duniyani.
Namtakia kila mama wema.
Watoto walele vizuri wakiwa wa mesheba na macho yawu bila machozi.
Sikia maombi yangu, kwamba tuta fika kule natuache vile vile.
Amani ifike duniyani na ianze na mimi.

I want peace in the world.
I want every mother to breathe a sigh.
That her babies are asleep with their bellies full and their eyes dry.
Hear my prayer and my plea that we’ll get there and then just let it be.
Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
