LYRICS: HALELUYA
(Heman Choir, Rwanda)

Yesu yarangije intambara
Kuko yanesheje satani

Tunezerwe tumusingize
Kuko yanesheje
Hallelujah

Imbaraga z’urupfu zose
Ni we wazinesheje zose

Tuvuze impundu twishimane
Tumutambire kuko ni we byose
Hallelujah

Kuri wa munsi wa gatatu
Nibwo yazutse afite icyubahiro

None ubu yibaniye (?) n’Imana
Uwiteka halleluyah
Hallelujah

Tumuhe n’imitima yacu
Ayitware Mwami Yesu
Hallelujah

(1) Jesus has ended battles as he has overcome Satan
(2) Let’s rejoice and glorify Him for he has triumphed
(3) He is the One who overcame all the powers of death
(4) Let’s elevate our voice in praise and rejoice together
(5) Let’s dance for Him for He is everything
(6) He rose up with glory from the dead on that third day
(7) Thus He is now seated with the Eternal God – hallelujah
(8) Let’s entrust Him with our hearts so He may lead them

"Stanley Stamiri.. I guess you are right. That's Zuru style.. To God be all the glory.. God bless you Stanley"
-snip-
I think "Zuru" is a typo for "Zulu", a South African ethnic group (which here refers to the Zulu style of singing).

Aleluia, aleluia, aleluia, aleluia
