Musical Interlude: Kuliko Jana

First some background: The original singers of this popular song was an  Afro-Pop group called Sauti Sol, who are the Kenyan equivalent of Boyz II Men. They’ve been around since 2005, but I only just discovered them when this song came across my Tumbr dashboard. In it, this  school choir was singing this song with Sauti Sol. I immediately fell in love with this song which had been released, by Sauti Sol, sometime a couple of years ago,  on the album, To Live and Die in Afrika.

For those of you who are already in the know about these things, thanks for posting this on my dash, and I can see why you love them. I’m not a religious woman  but that doesn’t mean I can’t be moved by religious music. This is very possibly one of the most beautiful church songs, I’ve ever had the pleasure of listening to.

The choir that sings in the first video is the Upper Hill School Boys Choir, from the Redfourth Academy of Music in Kenya, and they are wonderfully expressive.

Please, check out all their videos on Youtube, and subscribe.

 

And this is a version by the original artist, Sauti Sol:

 

More than Yesterday

Jesus is my savior, and then my leader
He loves me more today than yesterday
His blessings are endless, he changes not like human does
He loves me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
I pray to you Lord to forgive them
If only they knew how much you loved me, they’d not mock me
And to my enemies I wish a long life, so that they see you bless me
Know that human beings are surprising
The rejected Jesus thrice before the cock crowed
Know that human beings are surprising
They crucified Jesus the Messiah without hesitation
Jesus is my savior, and then my leader
He loves me more today than yesterday
His blessings are endless, he changes not like human does
He loves me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
The Lord is my savior, and then my deliverer
He loves me more today than yesterday
His blessings are endless, he changes not like human does
He loves me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
You are the one I depend on, in death or sickness I depend on you father
For anything that hinders me, from getting into heaven you will remove fore me
The Lord is my savior, and then my deliverer
He loves me more today than yesterday
His blessings are endless, he changes not like human does
He loves me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
More than Yesterday
More than Yesterday
Jesus love me more today than yesterday
Kuliko Jana
Bwana ni mwokozi wangu, Tena ni kiongozi wangu
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Baraka zake hazikwishi, si kama binadamu habadiliki
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Kuliko Jana
Kuliko Jana
Yesu nipende leo kuliko jana
Kuliko Jana
Kuliko Jana
Yesu nipende leo kuliko jana
Nakuomba Mungu awasamehe
Wangalijua jinsi unavyonipenda mimi wasingenisema
Na maadui wangu nawaombe maisha marefu, wazidi kuona ukinibariki
Ujue binadamu ni waajabu sana
Walimkana Yesu mara tatu kabla jogoo kuwika
Ujue binadamu ni waajabu sana
Walimsulubisha Yesu Messiah bila kusita
Bwana ni mwokozi wangu, Tena ni kiongozi wangu
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Baraka zake hazikwishi, si kama binadamu habadiliki
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Kuliko Jana
Kuliko Jana
Yesu nipende leo kuliko jana
Kuliko Jana
Kuliko Jana
Yesu nipende leo kuliko jana
Wewe ndio nategemea, Kufa kupona baba nakutegemea
Chochote kitanikatsia, kuingia mbinguni utaniondolea (oooh oooh yeah)
Wewe ndio nategemea, (amen) Kufa kupona baba nakutegemea (oh oh)
Chochote kitanikatsia, kuingia mbinguni utaniondolea (wewe, ndio nategemea)
Wewe ndio nategemea, Kufa kupona ndio nategemea (Eh bwana)
Chochote kitanikatsia, kuingia mbinguni utaniondolea (Eh, maisha yangu yote)
Wewe ndio nategemea, (kwa nguvu zangu zote), kufa kupona baba nakutegemea (nakutegemea)
Chochote kitanikatsia, kuingia mbinguni utaniondolea (oooooooh)
Bwana ni mwokozi wangu, Tena ni mkombozi wangu
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Baraka zake hazikwishi, si kama binadamu habadiliki
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Kuliko Jana
Kuliko Jana
Yesu nipende leo kuliko jana
Kuliko Jana
Kuliko Jana
Yesu nipende leo kuliko jana
Wewe ndio nategemea (wewe), kufa kupona baba nakutegemea (wewe)
Chochote kitanikatsia (uh-huh), kuingia mbinguni utaniondolea
Wewe ndio nategemea (oooh), kufa kupona baba nakutegemea (nakutegemea)
Chochote kitanikatsia kuingia mbinguni utaniondolea
Bwana ni mwokozi wangu, Tena ni mkombozi wangu
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Baraka zake hazikwishi, si kama binadamu habadiliki
Ananipenda leo kuliko jana
Kuliko Jana
