WIMBO


Ki: Bwana Mungu wetu yupo hapa, yu pamoja nasi. Tumsujudie, tumche. Na tumsikie jinsi anavyotufundisha katika Neno lake:

ama: Mpende Bwana Mngu wako kwa moyo wako wote, na wka roho yako yote, na kwa akili zako zote; Mpende na jirani yako kama nafisi yako.

au: Mimi ni Bwana Mungu wako, usiwe na miungu mingine ila mimi. Usilitaje bure Jina la Bwana Mungu wako, maana Bwana hatamhesabia kuwa hana hatia mtu alitajaye jina lake bure. Ikumbuke siku ya Bwana, uitakase. Waheshimu Baba yako na Mama yako. Usiue. Usizini. Usibe. Usimshuhudie jirani yako uongo. Usiitamani nyumba ya jirani yako. Usitamani mke wa jirani yako, wala mtumishi wake, wala ng’ombe wake, wala chochote alicho nacho.

Ki: Msaada wetu ni katika Jina la Bwana,
Ush: Aliyeziumba mbingu na dunia.
