Blessed be the Land of Zimbabwe

Blessed be the Land of Zimbabwe (auf Englisch), Kalibusiswe Ilizwe leZimbabwe (auf IsiNdebele) bzw. Simudzai mureza wedu weZimbabwe (auf Shona) ist seit 1994 die Nationalhymne von Simbabwe. Das gleichnamige Lied Zimbabwe von Bob Marley & the Wailers, welche bei der Unabhängigkeitsfeier von Simbabwe auftraten, gilt als inoffizielle Nationalhymne Simbabwes.

Der Text stammt von Solomon Mutswairo (* 1924) und die Musik von Fred Lecture Changundega (* 1954).


Kalibusiswe Ilizwe leZimbabwe (IsiNdebele)

Phakamisan' if'legi yethu yeZimbabwe
Eyazalwa yimpi yenkululeko;
Le gaze' elinengi lamaqhawe ethu
Silivikele ezitheni zonke;
Kalibusiswe ilizwe leZimbabwe.

Khangelan' i Zimbabwe yon' ihlotshi si we
Ngezintaba lang' miful' e bu keka yo.
I zulu kaline, izilimo zande;
Iz' sebenzi zenam', abantu basuthe;
Kalibusiswe ilizwe leZimbabwe.

Nkosi bu sis' ilizwe le-thu leZimbabwe
Ilizwe labo khokho bethu thina sonke;
Kusuk' eZambezi Kusiy' e Limpopo.
Abakho kheli babe lobuqotho;
Kalibusiswe ilizwe leZimbabwe.
achamdölöle .

Simudzai mureza wedu weZimbabwe (Shona)

Simudzai mureza wedu weZimbabwe
Yakazvarwa nomoto wechimurenga;
Neropa zhinji ramagamba
Tiidzivirire kumhandu dzose;
Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.

Tarisai Zimbabwe nyika yakashongedzwa
Namakomo, nehova, zvinoyevedza
Mvura ngainaye, minda ipe mbesa
Vashandi vatuswe, ruzhinji rugutswe;
Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.

Mwari ropafadzai nyika yeZimbabwe
Nyika yamadzitateguru edu tose;
Kubva Zambezi kusvika Limpopo,
Navatungamiri vave nenduramo;
Ngaikomborerwe nyika yeZimbabwe.

Blessed be the Land of Zimbabwe (Englisch)

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.

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.

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.
