(Sung in Zulu – A Hymn)

Jerusalema, umuzi okhanyayo (Jerusalem, home of light)
Ngingeze ngakubala (I cannot quantify)
Okuhle okulaphaya (All the beauty in there)
Ngingeze ngakubala (I cannot quantify)
Okuhle okulaphaya (All the beauty in there)(Repeat)

Akukabonakali (I have never seen)
Kudlula konke okunye (Anything else better)
Kumnandi kulowo muzi (There is joy in that home)
NeNkosi ikhona le (As the Lord dwells there)
Kumnandi kulowo muzi (There is joy in that home)
NeNkosi ikhona le (As the Lord dwells there)(Repeat)

(Repeat)

Kuyezwakala khona (There you shall hear)
Ihubo lentokozo (A glorious song)
Baningi abangcwele (From the multitudes of the holies)
Abakhona laphaya (That dwell there)
Baningi abangcwele (From the multitudes of the holies)
Abakhona laphaya (That dwell there)(Repeat)

(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)
