lyrics

QUENCH THE THIRSTING

SHE STANDS CRYING IN THE DESERT,
IN THE WASTELAND OF LOST HOPES,
AS SHE REACHES FOR AN ANSWER, A CURE FOR HER SOUL
SHE CRIES:
MOYO MOYO OMUTUKUVU NKUSABA OMPONYE ENYONTA
MU MUTIMA GWANGE
MOYO MOYO OMUTUKUVU NKUSABA OMPONYE ENYONTA
OMPONYE ENYONTA MU MEME YANGE
(English Translation of Chorus)
SPIRIT, HOLY SPIRIT,
I ASK TO QUENCH THE THIRSTING, THE THIRSTING IN MY SOUL
SPIRIT, HOLY SPIRIT, I ASK TO QUENCH THE THIRSTING,
THIRSTING THAT IS DEEP DOWN IN MY SOUL

IN THE SEA OF HER EMPTINESS, A RIVER STARTS TO FLOW,
BRINGING PEACE TO HER RESTLESSNESS,
HER SPIRIT STARTS TO GLOW

NKOYE NKOYE OKUYAYAGANA
LELO LELO MPONYA MPONYA
NKOYE NKOYE OKUYAYAGANA
LELO LELO MPONYA MPONYA
(English translation)
I’m tired and tired of striving
Today today heal me heal me

End Luganda Ad Libs
Kansi JJe (Let me come)
Katonda Nkusaba (God I ask you)
Lelo Kansi JJe (Today Let me come)
Mukama Wange (My Lord)
