(Sung in Zulu)

Sengiyamethemba lowo (I trust Him that)
Owanigelwa le EGolgotha (was brought to Golgotha)
Ngezono zam’ nezabantu bonke (Because of mine and all mens’ sins)
(Repeat)

Chorus:
Hay’ imvana eyophayo (Oh the lamb that bled)
Yahlatshelwa thina, thina (That was crucified for us, for us)
Hay’ uMmeli wabonayo (The sinners’ representative)
Wasifela thina (Died for us)
(Repeat)

Hay’ uMmeli wabonayo (The sinners’ representative)
Wasifela thina (Died for us)
(Repeat)

Haleluja Siyabonga, simakade (I thank you, you are everlasting)

Bayede Nkos’ engcwele (Hail to the Holy God)
O Wangithwalel’ umqhele (You bore the crown for me)
Lowo mqhele wakuhlaba (That crown pierced you)
Kuze ngibe nokwethaba(I’m in awe of you (?))
Wawungenasici Jesu (You were without sin Jesus)
Wawumuhle mhlaba-hlosi (You were perfect in your splendour)
Kepha wakudela konke (Yet you gave it all up)
Ngazo zonk’ izono zethu (Because of our sins)

Bayede Nkosi yam’, Bayede Nkosi yam’ (Hail/salute/glory to my God)
(Repeat)

Lokhudungi, kuyangimangalisa (It amazes me)
Futh’ buye, kuyangithombisa (It also humbles me)
Kuyaqeda, yonk’ inkani (You defeated my stubbornness)
Nami ngiyathandwa (And I am loved)
Ngingubani? Bayede! (Who Am I? Hail)

Bayede Nkosi yam’, Bayede Nkosi yam’ (Hail/salute/glory to my God)
(Repeat)
