Intonga yakho, ingumsimelelo wam’
(Your Staff is my support)
Intonga yakho iyandithuthuzela

Uyehova ngumelusi wam’ andikwesaba lutho, ngoba
(The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want, because)
Inene ndaku landelwa kokuhle, ongubo(?) mi bam’ yebo

Indebe yami yaphalala ndazwa, ile intonga yakho

Intonga yakho intonga (Your staff, the Staff)

Oh Yehova, ekumyembeni ebumnyameni (Oh Lord, even in the darkness)

Noma kunjani, noma sendi hamba (No matter what happens, even as I walk )
Enthunzini, lokufa (In the valley of death)

(Refrain)
