(Sung in Xhosa)

Moya wami, Moya Wami, Moya Wami x2
(My soul, my soul, my soul)

Sungxama, ng’yazi konakele (Hurry, I know things are a mess)
Ntukuthelo yakh’ ingaphezulu (Your anger is high)
Konakele: okomhlaba kundehlule (It is a mess: the world has gotten the better of me)
‘Mpilo le ayikho lula (This life is not easy) (Repeat)

Xol’umoya wam uyafis’ukwenza kahle (Make peace, my soul yearns to do right)
Okomhlaba kundehlule (Earthly things have defeated me)
Xol’umoya wam uyafisa ukwenza kahle (Make peace, my soul yearns to do right)
Mpilo le ayikho lula (This life is not easy)

Xola moya wami (Make peace, my soul)
Xola moya wami (Make peace, my soul)
Xola moya wami (Make peace, my soul)
Moya Wami, eh Moya wami (Oh my soul, my soul) (Repeat)
