Our National Anthem Translated to English

The Original Version:

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,

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

In English:
God bless Africa,
Lift her horn on high,
Hear our prayers.
God bless us

Who are Your people.
God save our nation,
End wars and strife.
South Africa, South Africa.

Ringing out from our blue heavens,
from our deep seas breaking round;
Over everlasting mountains
where the echoing crags resound.

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