During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Majaribu ni mengi yanayotujilia

Author: Charles A. Tindley 1851-1933; Translator: M. G. Mutsoli
Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1. Majaribu ni mengi yanayotujilia.
Bali Mungu anajua yanapotujilia.
Hima atatuongoza mpaka atuitapo.
Tutaelewa vema tufikapo.

Wateule wakusanyikapo.
Tutahadithia ushindi wetu;
Tutaelewa vema tufikapo.

2. Mipango yaadimika, nasi twakufamoyo.
Twapotea gizani mioyo ikiwa mizito.
Bali tukiyafuata maneno yake Bwana,
Tutaelewa vema tufikapo.

3. Majaribu na mitego iliyojificha.
Nayo hutunasa ghafula tusipotarajia.
Basi, twajiuliza, kwani twajaribiwa?
Tutaelewa vema tufikapo.
