National Anthem of South Africa

This is the official version of the national anthem, combining
"Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika" and "Die Stem" and "The Call of South Africa"

        Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika
        Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo,
        Yizwa imithandazo yethu,
        Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.

        Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso,
        O fedise dintwa la matshwenyeho,
        O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa heso,
        Setjhaba sa South Afrika - South Afrika.

        Uit die blou van onse hemel,
        Uit die diepte van ons see,
        Oor ons ewige gebergtes,
        Waar die kranse antwoord gee,

        Sounds the call to come together,
        And united we shall stand,
        Let us live and strive for freedom,
        In South Africa our land.
