God is with us forever

This is a fun song with African-style (well at least westernised Lion-King African style!)
Written as a song for children across Suffolk to sing as part of the centenary celebrations of the Diocese of St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich.
The Diocese has link with Kagera in Tanzania - hence the song being written in a mix of Swahili & English
The youtube video linked shows the actions (based on British Sign Language) that can be used with it

With thanks to Patson & Anna (two Tanzanian relatives!) & Stephen (in Bury St Edmunds!) for help with the Swahili
