Keep this for protection
Deep in your heart
It's the Kalahari blowing
Under a southern star

There's a new day coming
I feel it in my bones
Africa Rising
From blood on the stones

I feel the wind in my sails
I know I can fly
I'm going to break these chains
Under a blood red sky

I said Hey La
I said Helele
I said Hey La
I said Hala

Isoka lapha wena ukhatizwe

Good young people
Born to bad times
Where the prophjets have failed
And the river runs dry
There's a new day coming
Across the divide
Africa Rising
Against yesterday's tide

I see the young are strong
And their dreams are proud
Their hearts are on fire
Where silence once stood

I said Hey La
I said Helele
I said Hey La
I said Hala

Suka lapha wena weqath'izwe
('Leave this place, you who incited the nations tofight')

Baleka wena weqath'izwe
('Flee, you who incited the nations tofight')

Sesikhatele
('we are tired')

African moon
Keep on rising
Shine on to the sea of Japan
Millions in the darkness waiting
From Kowloon to Amsterdam

Very soon I must be leaving
I hear your mother call my name
Passing through the midnight hour
I feel no pain

I said Hey La
I said Helele
I said Hey La
I said Hala
