(Sung in Zulu – A Hymn)

Sewakhile enhlizweni umhlobo wam (He is built in my heart, my friend)
Nguy’ omkhulu ezihlotjeni umhlobo wam (He is greatest among my relatives, my friend)

Ngoba nguye owangi mela (For He’s the one who stood up for me)
Langi lahlwe okwempela (When I was forsaken by all others)
Ngal’ uthando wangifela umhlobo wam (With love he died for me, my friend)
(Repeat)

Uyathwala mthwalo wami, umhlobo wam (He carries my burdens, my friend)
Uthi wongi thwala nam, umhlobo wam (He promises to carry me as well, my friend)

Waye hlatjwa njenge mvana (He was slain like a lamb)
Aza ngez’ owakhe mtwana (To make me his own child)
yeki nhlanhla yokwazana nomhlobo wam (What a privilege it is to know my friend)
(Repeat)

Yeki nhlanhla yokwazana nomhlobo wam (What a privilege it is to know my friend) x?
