African new year
Selemo sa basotho
New beginning mphahlalatsane
Birth of new light,
New light preceding good harvest
Singing songs of now
dancing dances of now

African new year
Birth of spirit,
African son has been born
Sun yielding divine essence
Dawn of vaccination period
Celebrating god tender
Divining all life forms

African new year
Aquarian age of women
maidens, flowers of nation
maidens, symbols of nation
Unifying fabrics in my culture
Unifying fabrics in my beliefs
