Utamu wa Yesu (The Sweetness of Jesus) LYRICS BY Rose Muhando

Utamu wa Yesu (The Sweetness of Jesus) 
………………………………………………..Rose Muhando
(Sung in Swahili)
Lile lile…
Acheni muone utamu wa Yesu we (Let me show the sweetness of Jesus)
Mama we onjeni utamu wa Yesu we (Come and taste the sweetness of Jesus)
Mwenzenu nimeonja utamu wa Yesu we (I have tasted the sweetness of Jesus)
Usione nina raha nimeonja utamu wa Yesu we (See my joy, I have tasted the sweetness of Jesus)
Si kama nimechanganyikiwa bali ni utamu wa Yesu we (I’m not crazy, it is the sweetness of Jesus)
Jamani sijarukwa na akili bali utamu wa Yesu we (I am not mad, but it’s the sweetness of Jesus)
Utamu we, nimeonja utamu we x2 (The sweetness, I have tasted the sweetness)

Chorus:
Utamu we, nimeonja utamu we he x2 (The sweetness, I have tasted the sweetness)
Utamu wa Yesu we, Utamu wa Yesu we x2 (The sweetness of Jesus)
Utamu we, utamu x3 (The sweetness)
Utamu wa Yesu we, he (The sweetness of Jesus)
Mwemere, mwemere x4 (?)
Viko vingi vitamu lakini mwisho wake mauti (A lot of pleasures lead to death)
Viko vingi vitamu lakini mwisho wake kilio (A lot of pleasures lead to tears)
Vingine ni vitamu lakini mwisho wake kilio (Others are pleasurable but lead to tears)
Ni vitamu lakini mwisho vichungu kama shubiri (Are pleasurable but end in bitterness)
Ni vitamu lakini mwisho vinawasha kama upupu (Are pleasurable but end with disease)
Ni vitamu lakini mwisho vinapalia we (The are pleasurable, but only fleetingly)
Acheni niuseme utamu wa Yesu we (Let me testify on the sweetness of Jesus)
Wacheni nisifu utamu wa Yesu we (Let me praise the sweetness of Jesus)
Umetutenga mbali na dhambi, utamu wa Yesu we (It has separated us from sin, the sweetness of Jesus)
Haufanani na utamu wa asali, utamu wa Yesu we (It cannot be compared to honey, the sweetness of Jesus)
Thamani yake imeshinda almasi, utamu wa Yesu we (It’s value exceeds that of a diamond, the sweetness of Jesus)
Ni mali ghafi isiopatika kwa mapesa jamani he (It is a rare jewel that cannot be bought)
Bali kwa njia ya msalaba tumepewa utamu wa Yesu we (But by the way of the cross, we have been given the sweetness of Jesus)
Mbinguni tunakwenda bure, uzima tunapata bure (To heaven we go for free, we are given eternal life for free)
Wokovu tumepata bure, amani tunapata bure (We have been given free salvation, peace we find for free)
Utamu we, nimeonja utamu we x2 (The sweetness, I have tasted the sweetness)

(Chorus)

Umetutenga mbali na dhambi, utamu wa Yesu we (It has separated us from sin, the sweetness of Jesus)
Usione tuna raha, tumeonja utamu wa Yesu we (We are joyful as we have tasted the sweetness of Jesus)
Usione tunacheka, tumeonja utamu wa Yesu we (We laugh as we have tasted the sweetness of Jesus)
Umetutenga mbali na dhambi, utamu wa Yesu we (It has separated us from sin, the sweetness of Jesus)
Umetusogeza karibu na Mungu, utamu wa Yesu we (brought us close to God, the sweetness of Jesus)
Dhambi zetu zimewekwa mbali na Mungu, utamu wa Yesu we (Our sins are forgiven, the sweetness of Jesus)
Walio chini wameinuliwa, utamu wa Yesu we (The last are first, the sweetness of Jesus)
Badala ya kilio ni kicheko, utamu wa Yesu we (Joy instead of tears, the sweetness of Jesus)
Badala ya aibu utukufu, utamu wa Yesu we (Praise instead of shame, the sweetness of Jesus)
Mito ya baraka inatiririka, utamu wa Yesu we x2 (The springs of blessings flow, the sweetness of Jesus)
Utamu we, nimeonja utamu we (The sweetness, I have tasted the sweetness)

(Chorus)

Mkitaka magari mazuri, onjeni utamu wa Yesu we (You want to be blessed with cars, taste first the sweetness of Jesus)
Mkitaka majumba mazuri, onjeni utamu wa Yesu we (You want to be blessed with houses, taste first the sweetness of Jesus)
Mkitaka kubarikiwa, onjeni utamu wa Yesu we (You want to be blessed, taste first the sweetness of Jesus)
Mkitaka kuinuliwa, onjeni utamu wa Yesu we (You want to be lifted, taste first the sweetness of Jesus)
Utamu we, nimeonja utamu we (The sweetness, I have tasted the sweetness)

(Chorus)

Sing’oki ng’o, kwa Yesu sing’oki ng’o x4 (No, I will not leave Jesus)
Utamu we, utamu x3 (The sweetness)
Utamu wa Yesu we (The sweetness of Jesus)
