Anthem Lyrics

1.Simudzai mureza wedu weZimbabwe


Yakazvarwa nomoto wechimurenga;


Neropa zhinji ramagamba


Tiidzivirire kumhandu dzose;


Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.


2.Tarisai Zimbabwe nyika yakashongedzwa


Namakomo, nehova, zvinoyevedza


Mvura ngainaye, minda ipe mbesa


Vashandi vatuswe, ruzhinji rugutswe;


Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.


3.Mwari ropafadzai nyika yeZimbabwe


Nyika yamadzitateguru edu tose;


Kubva Zambezi kusvika Limpopo,


Navatungamiri vave nenduramo;


Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.

Anthem Lyrics English

Blessed be the Land of Zimbabwe

1.O lift high the banner, the flag of Zimbabwe


The symbol of freedom proclaiming victory;


We praise our heros' sacrifice,


And vow to keep our land from foes;


And may the Almighty protect and bless our land.

2.O lovely Zimbabwe, so wondrously adorned


With mountains, and rivers cascading, flowing free;

May rain abound, and fertile fields;


May we be fed, our labour blessed;


And may the Almighty protect and bless our land.

3.O God, we beseech Thee to bless our native land;

The land of our fathers bestowed upon us all;


From Zambezi to Limpopo


May leaders be exemplary;


And may the Almighty protect and bless our land.
