See the nation through the people's eyes,
See tears that flow like rivers from the skies.
Where it seems there are only borderlines
Where others turn and sigh,
You shall rise x2
There's disaster in your past
Boundaries in your path
What do you desire will lift you higher?
You don't have to be extraordinary, just forgiving.
And those who never heard your cries,
You shall rise x2
And look toward the skies.
Where others fail, you prevail in time.
You shall rise.
Awu indoda yam
Hayi bayibulele bo
Hayi indoda yam
Hayi ababanda bam
Ukubu izi ingane zabo zodlala zibuzuswa
Ingane ezindane zabo zodlala zibuziswa
(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) x4
You shall rise x3
Sooner or later we must try... Living
(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) x4
See the nation through the people's eyes,
See tears that flow like rivers from the skies.
Where it seems there are only borderlines
Where others turn and sigh,
You shall rise x4
(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) 4x
Sooner or later we must try... Living
