Imela (Nathaniel Bassey ft. Enitan)


[Verse 1]
When I think upon your goodness;
And Your faithfulness each day
I’m convinced it’s not because I am worthy –
to receive the kind of love that You give.

But I’m grateful for your mercy,
and I’m grateful for your grace
And because of how You’ve poured out Yourself,
I have come to sing this song out in praise

Imela, Imela (Thank You! Thank You!)
Okaka, Onyekeruwa (Great and Might creator of the world)
Imela, Imela, (Thank You! Thank You!)
Eze m Oh (My King)

[Verse 2]
Who am I to sing Your praises?
Who am I to worship You?
It’s Your blood that makes the difference in me
And made a way for me to come to Your throne*
I could not come near Your presence
I could never sing Your song
But the sacrifice on Calvary’s tree
is the reason I can cry out today

Onye di ka gi? E kene diri gi
(Who is like You? All Glory belongs to You)
Onye na-eme mma
(He who does good)
Onye di ka gi? E kene diri gi
(Who is like You? All Glory belongs to You)
Onye nagworia (Mighty Healer)

*the original phrase is ‘and made a way to enter into Your throne’ which is not quite right as a throne cannot be entered into

Our Thoughts

In reading through the old testament, it’s interesting how distant the Israelites were from God, afraid of Him (and rightly so) and preferring to have Moses as a go-between. You could not touch the mountain upon which His presence dwelt and live. A man touched the ark of the covenant carelessly and died. Yet this same God has chosen to dwell IN US, a miracle made possible by the sacrifice of His only begotten Son, Jesus – the sinless Lamb of God. How can we know this and not fall on our faces in absolute gratitude?
