To Madiba

From small steps in Xhosa land

You made strides around the world

Who could fail to love you

You led so many by the hand

Rolihlahla  without you the world would  be a different place

We are blessed and thankful

For the kind of trouble that you made

Because Great Father, you saved an entire  race.

South Africa, South Africa he still holds you in his arms

His longest walk is over now and he is safe from harm

Mvezo, your greatest son has passed

But his spirit will ever last.

Heaven has called you to freedom

Rest well now Madiba
