National anthem of South Africa

The lyrics of the National Anthem of South Africa

Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika

Nkosi Sikelel’ iAfrika
Maluphakanyisw’ uphondo lwayo,
Yizwa imithandazo yethu,
Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho Iwayo.

Morena boloka setshaba sa heso,
O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho,
O se boloke, O se boloke setshaba sa heso,
Setshaba sa, South Afrika, South Afrika.

Die Stem van Suid-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.

Lord Bless Africa

Lord bless Africa
May her glory be lifted high,
Hear our prayers
Lord bless us, your children.

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

The Voice of South Africa

From the blue of our skies,
From the depths of our seas,
Over our everlasting mountains,
Where the echoing 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.

The National Anthem of South Africa was written by Enoch Sontonga and C. J. Langenhoven and composed by Enoch Sontonga and Marthinus Lourens de Villiers.

The motto of South Africa: Unity in Diversity.
