dear friends,
i am very happy to have found your web-page, since "god bless africa" was the national anthem in many african countries incl. kenya.
i am glad to know the version of your country.
please help me by sending the notes for the tune to my address.
thanks in advance
yours sincerely

Ta. It's a nice anthem. I guess by nature national anthems must say "Our Land" once or even a few times. Like the Lesotho anthem (First Verse). I recently went digging to see if it is, indeed, our land. Looking at the meaning of each verse, each stanza, of a national anthem is an interesting endeavour that I encourage. It means in the future you won't be singing a meaningless tune, but one whose every word has meaning and significance.

No isiZulu verse? Buthelezi must not be happy.

First paragraph is Xhosa, second is Sesotho, third is Afrikaans and fourth English.

English translation of the anthem;

God bless Africa,
Lift her horn on high,
Hear our prayers.
God bless us
Who are Your people.

God save our nation,
End wars and strife.
South Africa.

Ringing out from our blue heavens,
from our deep seas breaking round;
Over everlasting mountains
Where the echoing crags resound

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

What does the Afrikaans stanza say?
