There this song and its really catchy and i like it. Its in the swahili language but its really calming to me. Turns out the lyrics are a Christian Prayer. Its "our lord jesus.." and that stuff. Am i allowed to listen to this song or would it be shirk?

No, you can not listen to that song. And Yes, it would be shirk.

You can not because song is one of shaiytan instruments especially when it speaks against oneness of Allah subhana wat'ala

Its shirk. The song is praising Jesus peace be upon him as lord. When I hear these kinds of things being I live with a devote Christian mother.. I say astaghfiroallah just for hearing it not intentionally , put in my head phones and listen to Qur'an alhamdulillah.

Any song that is against the oneness of god is not good for muslim. Remember that none has right to worship or praise except ALLAH.
