(Sung in Zulu)
[Same song by Sfiso]

Phakama! Nkosi yeZulu (Arise! King of the heavens)
Phakama! Nkosi yeZulu (Arise! King of the heavens)
Uwengamele umhlaba wonke (And reign over all)
Uwengamele wonkumhlaba (And reign over the whole earth)

Phakama! Nkosi yeZulu (Arise! King of the heavens)
Phakama! Nkosi yeZulu (Arise! King of the heavens)
Uwengamele impilo yami (And reign over my life)
Uwengamele wonkumhlaba (And reign over the whole earth)

Refrain:
Phakama! Nkosi yeZulu (Arise! King of the heavens)
Phakama! Nkosi yeZulu (Arise! King of the heavens)
Uwengamele umhlaba wonke (And reign over all)
Uwengamele wonkumhlaba (And reign over the whole earth)

Phakama empilweni zetu Baba (Arise in our lives Father)
Phakam’ isa umusa wako (Arise in your mercy)
Nasemzini yetu Baba (Over our families Father)
Sithi phakamis’ uthando lwako Baba (We say arise in your love Father)
Umhlaba wonke (Reign over all)
Sithi uwengamele wonkumhlaba (We say reign over the earth)

(Refrain)
