This is only for people who don't understand Ugandan languages such as "Luganda". My new project "Translating Local Gospel Music" I wanted for non Luganda speakers to understand Local Gospel Music and be blessed like we are.

YESU ASOBOLA

Hmmm...
Osobola, Osobola Yesu wange

Mukama nfubye, ddala ngezezzako
Buli kyenkwata, kili nga muyonga
Tekiyimirila, nn’amanyi gampeddemu
Nake kangume, Yesu osobola

Kale laba eggulu, telirina mpagi
Ebinyonyi mu bbanga, tebilima meri
Bimuli kutale, tebibuka biro byabyo
Bwoba nga offayo kw’ebyo? Nange osobola okunyamba!

Yesu osobola, bonna nga bagenze
Buli we nnekwata. nga walinga kitengejja
Nkulabye nga oyamba ba mulekwa abatalina maama
Kankukowoole Yesu osobola

(Ddala Osobola) (Ssebo) Yesu osobola, bonna nga bagenze
Buli we nnekwata. nga walinga kitengejja
Nkulabye nga oyamba ba mulekwa abatalina maama
Kankukowoole Yesu osobola

Nze bwoba nga wankuma, n’omponya amagombe
Babirye nandifudde nandibadde mbuyaga ekkunta
Gyonzijje walaa, mmmh maziga mangi
Kkati newano wendi, Yesu osobola okunyamba nze

Yesu osobola, bonna nga bagenze
Buli we nnekwata. nga walinga kitengejja
Nkulabye nga oyamba ba mulekwa abatalina maama
Kankukowoole Yesu osobola

(Nga silina suubi) Yesu osobola, bonna nga bagenze
(Mukama nga nzigwelera) Buli we nnekwata. nga walinga kitengejja
Nkulabye nga oyamba ba mulekwa abatalina maama
(Nzuno nzize) Kankukowoole Yesu osobola

Oh! Jesu wange, Osobola, gwe asabola ebyange!
Oh my Jesus, you’re able, it’s you who can handle my issues.

Ngasilina suubi Jesu wange, nkukowoola
Osobola osobola, hey hey...

Ddala osobola, osobolera ddala
Eyamponya amagombe, Yesu osobola
Ddala osobola, osobolera ddala
Eyamponya amagombe, Yesu osobola okuyamba nze!

Yesu osobola, bonna nga bagenze
Buli we nnekwata. nga walinga kitengejja
Nkulabye nga oyamba ba mulekwa abatalina maama
Kankukowoole Yesu osobola

English translation: JESUS YOU'RE ABLE

Hmmm...
Lord, I’ve struggled, surely I’ve tried
Everything I touch, is like a heavy wind
It doesn’t stay still, I’ve lost the strength
But let me be strong, Jesus you’re able

Take a look at heaven, it don’t have no pillars.* *correct English: "It doesn't have any pillars
The birds in the air, they don’t grow food
Flowers in the bush, never miss their seasons
If you care for those? You can help me too.

chorus Jesus, you’re able, when they’re all gone
Everywhere I hold onto is like a water hyacinth
I have seen you helping orphans without a mother
Let me call on you, Jesus you are able.

(Surely you’re able) Jesus, you’re able, when they’re all gone
Everywhere I hold onto is like a water hyacinth
I have seen you helping orphans without a mother
Let me call on you, Jesus you are able.

It is you who has protected me, and spared me the grave
Babiry, I’d have died, I’d be the storming wind
You’ve brought me from far, many tears
Now, even here where I am, Jesus you can help me

Jesus, you’re able, when they’re all gone
Everywhere I hold onto is like a water hyacinth
I have seen you helping orphans without a mother
Let me call on you, Jesus you are able.

(When I have no hope) Jesus, you’re able, when they’re all gone
(Lord, when I’m perishing) Everywhere I hold onto is like a water hyacinth
I have seen you helping orphans without a mother
(Here I’ve come) Let me call on you, Jesus you are able.

Oh my Jesus, you’re able, it’s you who can handle my issues.

When I have no hope, my Jesus, I call upon you
You’re able, you’re able, hey hey

Indeed you’re able, you’re so able
Who spared me the grave, Jesus you’re able
Indeed you’re able, you’re so able
Who spared me the grave, Jesus you’re able to help me

Jesus, you’re able, when they’re all gone
Everywhere I hold onto is like a water hyacinth
I have seen you helping orphans without a mother
Let me call on you, Jesus you are able.

repeat chorus

Repeat chorus, add "When I’m slipping, falling" to the beginning of the third line

[Fades out...]

When the physician failed, You’re able LORD, my life, you can manage it.
