Nkulunkulu Mnikati wetibusiso teMaswati,
Siyatibonga tonkhe tinhlanhla,
Sibonga iNgwenyama yetfu,
Live netintsaba nemifula.
Busisa tiphatsi mandla taka Ngwane
Nguwe wedvwa Somandla wetfu;
Sinike kuhlanipha lokungenabucili
Simise usicinise, Simakadze.
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;
The Blessings be on all rulers of our country;
Might and power are Thine alone;
We pray Thee to grant us wisdom without deceit or malice.
Establish and fortify us, Lord Eternal.
