Songs from NzIY at Fremont May 3

Tomorrow we (myself, Reiff Olsen, and my wife if she is there) are going to sing four songs as “Special Music”, three of them taken from the Swahili repertoire in Nyimbo za Imani Yetu. (The non-Swahili item is Isaac Watts’ 23rd Psalm, “My Shepherd will supply my need”, to the Southern Harmony tune RESIGNATION.)

Here are links to the three Swahili-based songs in PDF:
God is Love (Mungu ni Pendo) (MIDI)
Bless us, Father (Bariki Baba) (MIDI)
Simoni Unanipenda? (Simon, do you love me?) (MIDI)

The modifications, ranging from translation through paraphrase and adaptation to substitution, are all my own doing. We will encourage congregational participation in all but the last of the pieces (“Simoni Unanipenda?” will be sung during the distribution of the elements at Communion.
