Jesus has redeemed my soul
Jesus is my only hope
When I’m weak my God is strong
When I’m sad he is my song

And I will give to you my everything
Siyabonga, siyabonga
(We thank you, we thank you)
For you have given me your everything

Ujesu wahlenga umoya wami
Ujesu uyithemba lami
Uma ngikhathele ungamandla ami
Uma ngilusizi uyiculo lami
