ESWATINI NATIONAL ANTHEM

August 17, 2020

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.
