UJes’uma ebonakala (When Jesus returns)

Sekusele kancane bo! (The time is almost hear)
Nezigi ziyezwakala (We can hear the footsteps)
Uyofik’la emafini (He will descend from the clouds)
Uma eland’abakhe (To fetch His own)
Izulu l’yoduduma (The skies will thunder)
Koqhephuka amadwala (Rocks will be broken apart)
Abanye bayokhala (Some will weep)
Oh Thina sofana naye (But we will be like him)

UJes’uma ebonakala (When Jesus returns)
Thina, sofana Naye (We will be like Him)
Ngempela, ngempela (Truly, truly)
(Oh Thina) sofana Naye (We will be like Him) (Repeat)

(Sofana naye) Sofana naye (We will be like him)
(Sofana naye) Sofana naye (We will be like him)

Hlaha, oh hlala nami! (Abide, oh abide with me)
Litshonil’ ilanga (the sun has set)
Ubu-suku bufikile, Nkosi (the night is here, Lord)
Mandi, mandingasali, ndingenay’ uMncedi (May I not be left alone with no Helper)
Nd’yenzel’, Nd’yenzel’ uncedo ngokuhlala nam’ (Be my Helper and abide with me) (Repeat)

Nd’yenzel’, Nd’yenzel’ uncedo ngokuhlala nam’ (Be my Helper and abide with me)

Buya- buyakhawuleza, obo bomi bami (My life is fast moving and approaching the end)
Ndiya, ndiya-siywa zezomhlaba izinto (Earthly things are leaving me)
Ndibona iguquleko, iguquleko zodwa (All I see is changes)
Wen’ ongaguqukiyo hlala nami (You, the Unchanging God, abide with me) (Repeat)

Nd’yenzel’, nd’yenzel’ uncedo ngokuhlala nam’
(Be my Helper and abide with me) (x?)

Mhla ukhathazeka emhlabeni la (When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed)
Udiniwe aphelil’ amandla nya (When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost)

Bong’ iNkosi ngazo, ungasoli, qha! (Thank the Lord for them, and do not spite/criticize, no!)
(Repeat)

Bal’ izibusiso ezakho beke (Count your blessings)
(Zona) Uzibale-ke ngeyazinye he! ((and) name them: one by one)
Bala phela, aziningi na? (Count them, aren’t they many?)
Bong’ iNkosi ngazo, ungasoli, qha! (Thank the Lord for them, do not spite them, no!)
(Repeat)

Uthwesiw’ umthwalo osindayo na? (Are you ever burdened with a load of care?)
Siyasind’ isiphambano sakho la? (Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?)
Bala izibusiso zakho, qina qina ngo (Count your many blessings; and stand firm)
Khona wobalula umthwalo wakho, bo. (They will ease your burden) (Repeat)

(Refrain)

Bala phela, aziningi na? (Count them, aren’t they many?)
Bong’ iNkosi ngazo, ungasoli, qha! (Thank the Lord for them, do not spite them, no!)
