(Sung in Zulu)

Umhlaba wawunga kabikhona  (Before the earth was created)
Owayekhona uLizwi (The Word was there)
WayenguNkulunkulu (The Word was God)
ULizwi wayekuNkulunkulu (The Word lived in God)
Mhlaba lo wamnyama (The earth was still dark)
Wamemeza uLizwi (When the Word spoke)
Wathi makube nokukhanya (And said let there be light)
Vele ukukhanya kwabakhona (And there was light)
Ingaba ubani loyo (Who is that?)

Refrain:
Nguwe Jehova (It’s You Jehovah) x8

Yena wadal’ izulu nomhlaba (You created heaven and earth)
Wayesedala umuntu (And created man)
Waphefumlela kumuntu (You breathed life on the man)
Uba abuse phezu komhlaba (So he may rule the world)
Ingaba ubani loyo (Who is that?)

(Refrain)
