Lizalis’idinga lakho (Fulfil your Promise) by Zahara

3 Comments


(Old Xhosa Hymn)

Lizalis’idinga lakho, (Fullfil your promise)
Thixo Nkosi yenyaniso (Lord, our truthful God)
Zonk’intlanga, zonk’izizwe (that every clan and every nation)
Ma zizuze usindiso (should attain salvation)

Amadolo kweli lizwe (Every knee in this land)
Ma kagobe phambi kwakho (should bow before you)
Zide zithi zonk’ilwimi (until every tongue)
Ziluxel’udumo lwakho (proclaims your glory)

Yaala, Nkosi, singadeli (Forbid, Lord, that we forsake)
Iimfundiso zezwi lakho (the teachings of your Word)
Uze usivuselele (till you revive us)
Sive inyaniso yakho (that we obey your truth)

Umthwalo wam’ uyandisinda (My burdens are heavy)
ndiyacela ndiphatise (Please help me)
ulule isandla sakho (Stretch out your hand)

Uuuu uyandisinda (Oh it’s heavy)

(Sung in Xhosa)

Verse 1:
Abantu k’dala bend’valel’indlela
(It’s been a long time, people blocking my way)
Besisthi andiyonto, futhi ndiyaboniswa
(Saying I’m nothing and that it’s obvious)
Kodw’i ingom’engaphakathi kwam ibalis’ibali
(But the song in me tells a different story)
Nokuwa nokuvuka komntu nolonwab’olungapheliyo
(Of a fallen person, And a rising person and joy)

Chorus:
Nd’yathandaz’uyive lengoma (I’ll pray your hear this song)
Izovuselel’umphefumlo wakho (It will restore your soul)
Ik’nik’ithemb’elitsha (and give you hope)

Verse 2:
Kudal’usithi nyawo zam Ndikhokhele
(How long have I told my feet to carry me)
undise kwantliziyo ndise (To a place where only my heart knows.)
apho kungenjena (Were it not like this)
Kudal’usithi nyawo zam ndise Ndikhokhele
(How long have I told my feet to carry me)
undise kwantliziyo ndise (To a place where my heart knows.)
apho kungenjena (Were it not like this)
umphefumlo wam wahlukene (My spirit is broken)

(Chorus)
