Nkosi, sikelel' iAfrika,

Xhosa Version

Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika
Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo
Yiva imathandazo yethu
Nkosi Sikelela Nkosi Sikelela

Sesotho Version

Morena boloka sechaba sa heso
O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho,
Morena boloka sechaba sa heso,
O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho.

Zulu Version

Nkosi, sikelel' iAfrika,
Malupnakanyisw' udumo lwayo;
Yizwa imithandazo yethu
Nkosi sikelela,
Nkosi sikelela,

English Version

Lord, bless Africa
May her spirit rise high up
Hear thou our prayers
Lord bless us.

Afrikaans Version

Seen ons Here God, seen Afrika,
Laat sy mag tot in die hemel reik,
Hoor ons as ons in gebede vra,
Seen ons in Afrika,
Kinders van Afrika.

(How do you know that you are in Africa?
When they warn you on the traffic report to be on the look out for a Hippo on the highway.)
No Lie :-))

Mungu ibariki Africa

Hekima Umoja na
Amani Hizi ni ngao zetu
Afrika na watu wake.

Tubariki watoto wa Afrika.
Mungu ibariki Tanzania
Dumisha uhuru na Umoja
Wake kwa Waume na Watoto
Mungu Ibariki Tanzania na watu wake.
Ibariki Tanzania
Ibariki Tanzania
Tubariki watoto wa Tanzania.

Let Wisdom Unity and

Peace be the shield of

Africa and its people.
