(Languages: Sotho, Xhosa)

Song 1: Sefapanong Ke Boha (On the Cross)

Ke se ke tla tsamaya (I am ready to leave)
Eto la ho qetella (to take my final journey) (Repeat)

Pel’a hao ha ke fihla (Where I shall stand before You)
O se ke wa nteleka (Do not strike me)
Wena, lefika la ka (For You are my Rock)
Ke tshabetse ho wena (In You I find my refuge) (Repeat)

Spoken:
As Simon of Syria was carrying the cross of Jesus
There were two thieves who were also carrying their cross
But they started asking questions. They said,
“But what about us?” Then one of the soldiers looked at them and said:

Song 2: Lona Baratang (Who Desires to Live)

Ba inkele sefapano (They must carry their own cross)
Mahetleng a bona (On their shoulders)
Ba tle ba shoele dikano (And die for the covenant)
Tse ba leng ho tsona (That they they have made) (Repeat)

Spoken:
And there was this ruthless thief
He was very disrespectful, he wanted to force himself to heaven
Telling Jesus: “Free yourself, and free us”
But Jesus knew that he was carrying a lot of baggage
How do you enter heaven if you are carrying a lot of baggage?
And then Jesus said to Him:

Song 3: Uzo Ngena Kanjani (How do You Enter)

Uzo ngena kanjani, nge mithwalo (How do you enter with baggage?)
Uzo ngena kanjani, nge mithwalo (How do you enter with baggage?) (Repeat)

Awu ngeni, nge mithwalo (No you cannot enter with baggage)
Awu ngeni, nge mithwalo (No you cannot enter with baggage) (Repeat)

Old Sesotho Hymn

Sefapanong ke boha, wena moloki waka (On the cross I’m watching, you my savior)
Sefapanong ke boha, wena moloki waka (On the cross I’m watching, you my savior)

Madi atswa maqebeng, (The blood flowing from your wounds)
Le metsi le hlakoreng (and the water from your side )
Ka ‘ona ke re nthlatswe, ke be motle ke loke (Given to me, that I should be saved)

(repeat)

Ke be mothle ke loke! (That I should be saved!) x4
