Kum ba ya or "Kumbaya" in Gullah, the Creole dialect spoken by the former slaves living on the Sea Islands of South Carolina and Georgia means "Come by here", so the title can be translated as "Come by here, my lord, come by here." It is believed to be a traditional African melody from the Congo, but authorship has been controversially claimed by Reverend Marvin V. Frey (1918 – 1992). It first appeared in "Revival Choruses of Marvin V. Frey", a lyric sheet printed in Portland in 1939.
