1 Jesu, großer Wunderstern,
der aus Jacob erschienen:
meine Seele will so gern
dir an deinem Feste dienen.
Nimm doch, nimm doch gnädig an,
was ich Armer schenken kann.  
2 Nimm das Gold des Glandens hin,
wie ich's von dir selber habe
und damit beschenket bin;
so ist dir's die liebes Gabe.
Laß es auch bewährt und rein
in dem Kreuzes ofen sein. 
3 Nimm den Weihrauch des Gebets,
laß ihn gnädig dir genügen;
Herz und Lippen sollen stets,
ihn zu opfern vor dir lieben.
Wann ich bete, nimm es auf
und sprich Ja und Amen drauf. 
4 Nimm die Myrrhen bittrer Reu;
ach, mich schmerzet meine Sünde:
aber du bist fromm und treu,
daß ich Trost und Gnade finde,
und nun fröhlich sprechen kann,
Jesus nimmt mein Opfer an.

Notes:

Moterere Omonene "Let Us Praise the Lord" is a Confessional Lutheran hymnal in the language called Ekegusii. It was published in 2008 through the Lutheran Heritage Foundation in coordination with Kiarurwe na Ekanisa y'Ekeinchili Ekelutheri Kenya (Evangelical Lutheran Church of Kenya). The Lutheran Heritage edition is from 2010. It was typeset and printed by Printwell Industries, Ltd. Nairobi, Kenya.

Moterere Omonene consists of 347 hymns. This volume has Sunday liturgies, orders of service for weddings, funerals, confirmations, baptisms, various dedications, the propers for each Sunday, and Luther’s Small Catechism.  It is a very good beginning for an Ekegusii language Lutheran hymnal. But there are several points at which it could bear improvement. It contains no musical notation for either the Liturgical settings or the hymns. There are frequent typographical errors. In some cases the translation choices in hymns are worth improving.

An additional aim of this project is to help English speaking Lutherans in America to grow in appreciation of the common heritage they share with their Confessional Lutheran brothers and sisters in Kenya of the Abagusii people.

Ekegusii Terms and English Equivalent

The information about the hymns, authors, composers, etc. in Moterere Omonene is sometimes misspelled, incorrectly typeset, or sometimes just in error. As I work through the hymns I will try to make the information uniform in presentation and content. I will be looking for organists to record some settings for the church in Kenya to use in training pastors and congregations. I also hope to work with LHF to put Moterere Omonene on the Hymnary.org website.

Eriogi = Melody/Tune
Omoroisia Eriogi = Tune composer
Omoroisia Amang'ana = Composer
Omochakano = Composer/Music Writer
Ogotera = Poem/Song/Lyrics
Omoroisia Ogotera = Poet/Lyricists
Ase ogotera korwete = Based on a hymn, or derived from the hymn
