Congolese Christmas Carol

An unusual rendering of a Congolese Christmas carol

Lyrics:

Emanuel
Nzambe o kati ya biso oo
Bakonzi basato
Bayei komotala oo

Noele gloria
Tosepela banso
Toyemba ee

Mokonzi wa nse
Emanuele
Abotami o Beteleme oo
Mtoma wa boboto oo

Bakuti mpe mwana
O mbeto ya matiti oo
Bapesi mabonza
Bakumisi mwana oo

Noele, gloria
Tosepela banso,
toyemba ee

Mokonzi wa nse
Emanuele
Abotami o Beteleme oo
Tomba wa boboto

E Mama Maria
Boyambi bonene oo
Zongisa mopanga
Binela mokonzi oo

Noele, gloria
Tosepela banso,
toyemba ee

Mokonzi wa nse
Abotami o Beteleme oo
Mtoma wa boboto oo

Emmanuel
God with us
Three kings
have come to see him

Noel, gloria
Let us rejoice
and sing

The Lord of the world
Emmanuel
is born in Bethlehem
bringer of peace

They find the child
On a bed of straw
They offer gifts
They praise the child

Mother Mary
Of great faith
Discard the sword
Dance to the Lord
