There are a number of comments in this video's viewer comment thread critizing Gloria Muliro for recording a song that was originally recorded by Chris Tomlin. Here's one response to that criticism:
"Congrats Muliro.. It is a blessing for those who does not know English if you do more of the hillsongs in Swahili. There is no copy paste when i comes to Gospel... Look at the song above all, chris tomlin, lenny le blank, women of faith, michael smith, don moen... all sung. In fact all version in Enlish... Thanks to God Gloria did it and added a Swahili version.. It is a way of spreading the Gospel in all Languages"

I think "hillsongs" is a typo for "hit songs".
Many of those who questioned Gloria Muliro's use of this chorus indicated that they wouldn't have any problem with that if she had credited Chris Tomlin, the original composer on her record notes. I don't know if she did so or not, but I agree that there's nothing wrong with performers singing another person's song as long as they don't take the credit for that composition.

Thanks to Chris Tomlin and Gloria Muliro for their musical legacy.
Thanks also to the producers of these videos & their publishers on YouTube.
