Chants D’esperance 6

Segne, angnin m-pa ka ba ou,

Sel gnou ke ki bouke soufri,

E san ou mouin pa kab geri,

Mize mouin devan ou.

Ke:

Pran mouin jan ou oue-m la,

San fos e san soutiin,

Jan ou oue-m la, (2 foua)

O Yeshua, gran fre mouin.

Mouin pa janmin obei ou,

Peche kouvri-m la tet o pie,

E pou-m prezante devan ou

Peche Selman m-pote.

Mouin feb nan ke, mouin feb nan che,

Pou-m reziste devan Satan;

O Segne mouin, mouin feb tout tan,

Map rele: ban-m lumie.

San li koule a va blanchi-m,

Sint-Espri ou va purifie-m,

Riches ou yo va anrichi-m,

Min mouin! Vini sove-m.

 

Songs of Hope 6

Our Lord, Nothing I can give you,

Only a heart that’s weary of suffering,

Without you I cannot heal,

My misery is in front of you.

Chorus:

Take me as you see me here,

Powerless and without support,

As you see me, (2 times)

O Yeshua, great brethren of mine.

I never not obey you,

Sin covering me from head to toe,

And for me to introduce to you

My only sin-bearing.

I am faint of heart, I am weak in flesh,

For me to resist the devil;

O our Lord, I am weak all the time,

I call to you: give me light.

Your Blood will exonerate me,

The Spirit will purify me,

Your riches will enrich me,

Here Am I! Come save me.
