South African National Anthem


Nkosi sikelel’ iAfrika
Maluphakanyisw’ uphondo lwayo

God bless Africa
Raise high its glory


Yizwa imithandazo yethu,
Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.

Hear our prayers
God bless us, her children


Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso,
O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho,
O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa heso,
Setjhaba sa, South Afrika — South Afrika.

God, we ask You to protect our nation
Intervene and end all conflicts
Protect us, protect our nation,
our nation, South Africa — South Africa.


Uit die blou van onse hemel,
Uit die diepte van ons see,
Oor ons ewige gebergtes,
Waar die kranse antwoord gee,

From the blue of our heaven,
From the depth of our sea,
Over our everlasting mountains,
Where the crags resound,


Sounds the call to come together,
And united we shall stand,
Let us live and strive for freedom
In South Africa our land.
