Ah! Madiba, Yem-Yem ,Vela bembhentsele

An icon of the universe and the pillar of Africa

The freedom fighter and the father of many nations

A peacemaker of our life time

A giant and the hero of struggles

Ah! Madiba, Dlomo thole lesilo-The Father-continent

A blesser of democratic society-the leader

Though the flesh we don’t see, but

The legacy will remain in our inner part

Forward ever with the legacy of Madiba

Backward never with Rolihlahla’s loyalty

Ah! Madiba the Father of the soil

Though you are slumbering, but still talking

Ah!! Yem-Yem! We still hear your voice
