Sesotho lyrics


Lesotho lefatse la bontata rona
Hara mafatse le letle ke lona;
Ke moo re hlahileng,
Ke moo re hodileng,
Rea le rata,
Leha ba bang ba re le lenyenyane,
Ho rona le leholo, le lekane
Re na le masimo,
Re na le likhomo;
Ho re lekane.
‘Me leha le hloka lintho tse ngata,
Le tse rorisoang ke tse ling lichaba,
Le na le lithaba,
Makhulo, liliba,
Lea rateha.
Haholo lefatše lena la rōna
Le se le na le taba tsa Morena;
Batho b’a rapela,
Le mekhoa e’a fela.
Mōlimō ak’u bōlōke Lesōthō;
U felise lintoa le matšoenyeho;
Oho fatše lena;
La bo-ntat’a rōna;
Le be le khotso.


Current Sesotho lyrics


Lesotho fatshe la bo-ntata rona;
Hara mafatshe ohle le letle ke lona;
Ke moo re hlahileng,
Ke moo re holileng,
Rea le rata,
Molimo aku boloke Lesotho
U felise lintoa le matsoenyeho;
Oho fatse lena;
La bo-ntata rona;
Le be le khotso.


English translation


Lesotho, land of our Fathers,
Among the lands it is the most beautiful.
It is where we were born,
It is where we grew up–
We love it.
God, please protect Lesotho.
Spare it conflict, and tribulation–
Oh, this land,
Land of our Fathers,
May it have the peace.
