Not only are we relieved nor happy about democracy
Not only are we rejoicing and preaching the gospel of democracy
We truly are blessed to stand as a nation and our weapons down
For us as a nation to put apartheid behind us
Not that we are doff but because we are finally free

So much blood has been spilled
Weeping and hoping for a better future
Are we not grateful of Meneer Mandela?
Are we not satisfied by the wonderful country we live in?

Let unity continue to define us
Let diversity remain remain as the meaning of the rainbow nation
Let us continue to live in peace and harmony
Let Nelson Mandela’s legacy live on
