Oasis Chorale

NDIKHOKHELE BAWO
(Sung in Xhosa)

Ndikhokhele Bawo
(He paid for me, my Father)
Ndikhokhele Mmeli wami
(He paid for me by representing me)

Zalomhlaba Bawo
(While on earth, my Father)
Zundikhokhele
(I implore you to lead me.)
Ezintsizini
(During times of sorrow/strife)

Bawo, ndiya bonga ngoba wena
(Father, I thank You because You)
Usandi gcinile
(Will always keep me safe)
Hlal’ Uhlele duze kwami
(You are always standing nearby)
