English:Ringing out from our blue heavens,From our deep seas breaking round;Over everlasting mountainsWhere the echoing crags resound;From our plains where creaking wagonsCut their trails into the earthCalls the spirit of our Country,Of the land that gave us birth.At thy call we shall not falter,Firm and steadfast we shall stand.At thy will to live or perish,O South Africa, dear land.
