(Non-English parts sung in Igbo)
EBEZINA in Igbo(Nigerian language) simply means; don’t cry.
This song encourages you to stay put in faith in God no matter what it is you are going through.

It’s the same God, who was there for you in the midnight hour
It’s the same God Who is able to wipe your tears away
It’s the same God Who was there in times of lack and want
It’s the same God Is Jehovah My great provider

Tell me why you’re giving up on God
Tell me why you’re giving up on Him
Tell me why you’re giving up on God
Hold on, change is on the way

E bezina, Chukwu no nso (Stop Crying, God is near)
O gini bu nsogbu gi? (What is your problem?)
I ma na o dighi adigide? (You know it does not last?)
Nwanne m o, Jidesie ya ike (Beloved, hold Him tight)
Hicha anya gi eh (Wipe your tears)
Chukwu adighi atu asi(God does not lie)
O ga-adiri gi mma (It shall be well with you)

Don’t you cry, change is here
Weeping may endure for a night
Joy is gonna come in the morning
You don’t have to cry no more
Hold God by His word, he’s gonna do what his says
Lift your hands and give him praise


I know you’ve been crying – I understand
I know you’ve been wounded – But it’s OK
I know you’ve been broken But I’m here,
To mend your broken heart
Believe in me, you will overcome
Your yesterday will be a story
I’m the God of all flesh
Nothing is too hard for me to do
Don’t you forget (I calmed the sea)
Don’t you forget (I raised the dead)
Don’t you forget (I came to die that you might live forever)
Don’t you cry is gonna be over, You will overcome today
Wipe your tears and give him all the praise
