Ndi Survivor Lyrics – Judith Babirye

According to various views, the freedom of expression has been tainted because of how popular musicians and artists can get, running for office is a mudslide victory for them and since many of them have crossed to politics, the government wanted to get ahead to control the narrative.

Hey hey yeah…

Ng’oli bubi abange tolabayo agamba, “bambi tumuyambe tutya?”
Baangi bakola bukukuulu nebatandika okukusekerera oba okukugeyengura
Nze muli nakiriza nti abalabe b’omuntu tebaba wala nyo
Olaba ne Yesu be yayagala, b’amutunda ppaka okumukomelera
Leero okutuka wentuse Mukama Katonda nzize kusiima
Bawagizi bange Mukama b’otaddewo okumpanirila mu bisera ebizibu
Beebo abatuwadde ku nsimbi zaabwe songa tebabimanyi ebizubu byaffe
Omulevi bw’alekawo omulwadde, musamariya ayamba

When you’re badly off, hey, you don’t see nobody saying “How can we help him?”
Many form little groups, they began to laugh at you or backbite you
Deep inside I came to believe that a person’s enemies are not far away
Even Jesus, the ones he loved, they sold him off to the point of crucifying him
Today, reaching where I am, Lord God I came to appreciate
My fans, whom Lord you’ve positioned to support me in difficult times
They’re; those who’ve given us some of their funds, yet they don’t know our problems.
When the Levite abandons the sick, the Samaritan helps

Ndi survivor simala gagenda (Ndi survivor simala gagenda)
Oh Mukama Katonda anampolereza okusinga omusango (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Bw’aba ye yampita anampanirila omutonzi wange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Bw’aba ye yampita anampanirila mu lugendo lwange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Laba batuula nga bakolimira olugendo lwange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Naye ani akolimira Mukama Katonda gwawadde omukisa? (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Oh Olugendo lwange ye yageleka n’amanya kyendiba (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Nze ndi kawonawo, Nze ndi kawonawo abalabe bange Mukama alibalamula

I am a survivor, unshaken [won’t just leave] (I’m a survivor)
Oh the Lord God will defend and appeal (plead) my case (I’m a survivor)
If He’s the one who called me, my creator, he’ll support me (I’m a survivor)
If He’s the one who called me, he’ll support me on my journey (I’m a survivor)
Behold they sit and curse my journey (I’m a survivor)
But who curses him whom the Lord has blessed? (I’m a survivor)
OhH e’s the one who planned my journey and destiny (I’m a survivor)
I’m a survivor, I’m a survivor, the Lord will judge my enemies

mmm…., mmm…. Mmm….

Leero Mukama akujjeyo, laba onyirila olabika bulungi
Ela bakola bukukuulu bakusibeko ebijweteke bakulise ensolo enkambwe
Baaliwa lwe wakaaba? Baaliwa lwe walajjana?
mmm…. Byendabye mbilabye, twesigwe Katonda
Talikuleka nga okaaba, takusekerera,takugeyengula
Abaana ba bantu bamenya nnyo emitima
Twesige Katonda

Today, the Lord has brought you from far, behold you’re glowing, looking beautiful
Yet again they form groups, slandering you, throwing you in the mouth of the angry beast
Where were they when you cried? Where were they when you called out for help?
mmm. I’ve seen what I’ve seen, lets trust God
HE would never abandon you when you cry, he’d never laugh at or backbite you
Sons of men break hearts much
Let’s trust God

Ndi survivor simala gagenda (Ndi survivor simala gagenda)
Oh Mukama Katonda anampolereza okusinga omusango (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Bw’aba ye yampita anampanirila omutonzi wange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Bw’aba ye yampita anampanirila mu lugendo lwange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Laba batuula nga bakolimira olugendo lwange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Naye ani akolimira Mukama Katonda gwawadde omukisa? (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Oh Olugendo lwange ye yageleka n’amanya kyendiba (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Nze ndi kawonawo, Nze ndi kawonawo abalabe bange Mukama alibalamula

I am a survivor, unshaken [won’t just leave] (I’m a survivor)
Oh the Lord God will defend and appeal (plead) my case (I’m a survivor)
If He’s the one who called me, my creator, he’ll support me (I’m a survivor)
If He’s the one who called me, he’ll support me on my journey (I’m a survivor)
Behold they sit and curse my journey (I’m a survivor)
But who curses him whom the Lord has blessed? (I’m a survivor)
Oh He’s the one who planned my journey and destiny (I’m a survivor)
I’m a survivor, I’m a survivor, the Lord will judge my enemies

Bali eyo b’etala, bagelengetanya enkwe zaabwe
B’etala, tebakoowa, batega ebisavunge??
Oh n’ayita ani? N’ayita ani? Mukama…, Nwanila…
Tewali kyakulwanyisa ekinabawesa?? ekinalaba omukisa

They’re up and down, there, crafty – scheming up their plots
Up and down, they’re never worn out , ploting ill and evil??
Oh whom will I call? Whom will I call? Lord… FIGHT FOR ME
No weapon forged/formed against me shall prevail/prosper
Ndi Mwaana wo Mukama
Ndi survivor simala gagenda (Ndi survivor simala gagenda)
Oh Mukama Katonda anampolereza okusinga omusango (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Bw’aba ye yampita anampanirila omutonzi wange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Bw’aba ye yampita anampanirila mu lugendo lwange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Laba batuula nga bakolimira olugendo lwange (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Naye ani akolimira Mukama Katonda gwawadde omukisa? (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Oh Olugendo lwange ye yageleka n’amanya kyendiba (Nze ndi kawonawo)
Nze ndi kawonawo, Nze ndi kawonawo abalabe bange Mukama alibalamula

I am Your Child Lord,
I am a survivor, unshaken [won’t just leave] (I’m a survivor)
Oh the Lord God will defend and appeal (plead) my case (I’m a survivor)
If He’s the one who called me, my creator, he’ll support me (I’m a survivor)
If He’s the one who called me, he’ll support me on my journey (I’m a survivor)
Behold they sit and curse my journey (I’m a survivor)
But who curses him whom the Lord has blessed? (I’m a survivor)
Oh He’s the one who planned my journey and destiny (I’m a survivor)
I’m a survivor, I’m a survivor, the Lord will judge my enemies
