Question Luganda lyrics need translating

Hey there my Ugandan friends

Ever since you guys got your very own sub forum I haven't been seeing much of you guys...so you have retreated to your very own forum lol mais pourquoi??

Anyway I have a favour to ask and the only people who can help me are Ugandans

Please here is my request:

I want to know the meaning of this song so can one of you be so kind to translate this beautiful song and the title for me

Here's the lyrics: Nangirira/Omulangira yesu azalidwa/Abengalo mwekubile/aba endere/mwe kubile/wolaba bayimba/nga yesuyaliwo/Wolaba bakyakala/abana ba muno. It's a religious/spiritual song.

Thanks in advance

by the way...erm....what does Ki Nigeria mean?

P.S. it might be a good idea for you guys to start a music thread...you wouldn't believe how much people learn from one another via music.

Thanx Sseki. Got confused as to the meaning of "bakyakala". I guess I would have said "wolaba bavamudongo" for if you see some people partying. (My Luganda is terrible).

Guys normally say "Webale Nyo!" I hope that's the correct spelling.

Oops...my bad. I meant guys in the broad sense of the term. That's what everyone says when they say thank you.

Nah! ...Kale means OK! Ssebo is the polite term used in addressing a guy. Nyabo is used to address ladies.

The "Ki" in this case stands for "from" or "belonging to Nigeria."

Its pronounced "chi Nigeria".
