Nimekubali, nasema ndio
(I surrender, I say Yes)
Kwako ni salama, nasema ndio
(I'm safe in You, I say Yes)
Nimekubali, nasema ndio Bwana
(I surrender, I say Yes Lord)
Najitoa dhabihu iliyo hai, Bwana nitumie
(I give myself as a living sacrifice, Lord use me)

[Notice that the "hook"/chorus is given in the video summary found above.]

Lord i have accepted and agreed to be yours.
I agree that i am safe in your arms,
Lord i agree to what you say Lord...
i give myself a living sacrifice, Lord use me.

This comment was posted in response to a request for lyrics of this song from Swahili speakers.
*In the English translation of the hook that is given in this video's summary, the Kiswahili word "nimekubali" is translated as "I surrender".

An English translation of the Swahili word "Nimekubali" as "I Agree" is found at

An online Swahili to English translation feature gave the "agree" as the meaning for "nimekubali".


Nimekubali, nasema ndio (I accept, I say yes)
Kwako ni salama, nasema ndio (It is safe in you, I say yes)
Nimekubali, nasema ndio Bwana (I accept, I say yes Lord)

Najitoa dhabihu iliyo hai Bwana nitumie(I give myself as a living sacrifice, Lord use me)

Bwana watafuta watakao kuabudu kwa roho na kweli
(Lord you look for those who worship in spirit and truth)
Na wakati ndio huu naamini umefika Baba (And I believe that the time is now father)
Nisaidie kutenda kulingana na mapenzi yako yahweh (Help me to do your will)
Kutembea na maagizo yako moyoni mwangu (To walk with your instructions in my heart)


Mimi ni chombo mikononi mwako Yahweh (I am a vessel in your hands Yahweh)
Tena ni udongo na wewe mfinyanzi Baba (And clay, while you are the potter)
Nifinyange, nitengeneze (Mold me and make me)
Uishe nafsi yangu, chochote mimi nitatenda (Use my life, I follow
