O Lord our God, bestower of the blessings of the Swazi;
We give Thee thanks for all our good fortune;
We offer thanks and praise for our King
And for our fair land, its hills and rivers.
Thy blessings be on all rulers of our Country;

We pray Thee to grant us wisdom without deceit or malice.
Establish and fortify us, Lord Eternal.
