Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika: 
South Africa National Anthem

by Enoch Mankayi Sontonga

Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika
Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo,
Yizwa imithandazo yethu,
Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.

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

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


Die Stem:
The Call of South Africa

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