The following is an Ekegusii setting for the Sanctus based on the Kiswahili version found in Mwimbieni Bwana (2000, Evangelical Lutheran Church in Tanzania)

This is an image of a work in progress. Chords will be added.

The Ekegusii translation is first:
Omochenu, Omochenu, Omochenu,
OMONENE Nyasae
bw'Emeganda,
Igoro na Ense yiachoirwe
n'Obonene bwao.
Hosiana Igoro! Nasesenirie
oy'ogocha ase Erieta ri'Omonene,
Hosiana!

Followed by the Kiswahili translation:
Mtakatifu, Mtakatifu, Mtakatifu,
Bwana Mungu
wa Majeshi mbingu na nchi
zimejaa utukufu wako.
Hosiana mbinguni.
Heri anayekuja kwa
jina la Bwana.
Hosiana!
