Since 1997, the South African national anthem has been a hybrid song combining new English lyrics with extracts of the hymn "Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika" and the former anthem "Die Stem van Suid-Afrika" (The Call of South Africa).Lyrics:kosi sikelel' iAfrikaMaluphakanyisw' 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.Translation:God [Lord] bless AfricaRaise high Her gloryHear our PrayersGod bless us, we her childrenGod we ask You to protect our nationIntervene and end all conflictsProtect us, protect our nation, our nation, South Africa - South AfricaFrom the blueness of our skies,From the depths of our seas,Over our everlasting mountains,Where the echoing crags resound.
