Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye
Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye
Taizofara naye fara naye
Taizofara naye fara naye
Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye
Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye
Taizofara naye fara naye
Taizofara naye fara naye
Kwaziwai? Kwaziwai?
Makasimba, here?
Ndakasimba kana makasimbawo
Ndakasimba, ndakasimba. Ndakasimba kana makasimbawo

You raise your head, beneath the sun
But your boys they lie so close to you
Do you dare get up and wake the two

Oh Elias, as I see you there, at work in the daytime
Do you think you could answer All the questions in the world
in just one word - I think you could

If you die will I get word that you're gone
Will I hear it in passing conversation
Will I stop short and fall to the ground
Distance is short when your hand carries what your eye found.

Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really going to meet me
Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.

Honest and Manuel, well you know, they're at school now
Given the chance that their father's never seen
To see whats beyond Section 17.
And in ten years, when you look back at your boys,
well you know they've grown way taller
than the tallest sugar cane in the field.

If you die will I get word that you're gone?
Will I hear it in passing conversation?
Will I stop short and fall to the ground?
Distance is short when your hand carries what your eye found.

Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.
Hold my hand just one more time.
Hold my hand just one more time.
Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.

I see your wife. She stands stooped over by the fire outside.
And I see your boys. And when they look up,
you know I think they got their mother's eyes.
'Cause she looks so proud. She looks so happy.
She looks so proud. She looks so happy. Yeaaaaaaaaah

If you die will I get word that you're gone?
Will I hear it in passing conversation?
Will I stop short and fall to the ground?
Distance is short when your hand carries what your eye found.

Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.
Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.

Hold my hand just one more time. (Aya, Aya, Ayaahah)
Hold my hand, one more time. (Aya, Aya, Ayaahah)
aya ya ya, yah yah yah, yah yah yah (Aya, Aya, Ayaahaha)

Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.
Hold my hand just one more time,
to see if you're really gonna meet me.

...Translation of beginning...
Dai Jesu achoinekwa ndaizofara naye
If I could meet my Jesus I would be very happy with him.

Taizofara naye
We would be happy with him

Kwaziwai?
Hello

Makasimba, here?
Are you strong?

Ndakasimba kana makisimbawo
I am strong if you are strong.

Ndakasimba, ndakasimba
I am strong, oh I am strong.
