Ubusuku nemini Abufani!
Ngisaba into eyendzeka inyezi icalile,
Ngithanda into eyendzeka ilanga licalile.
Latjinga bafuna ukucaleka;
Lahlaba ilanga abanye abasacaleki.
Kazi litjhada lani ebusuku?
Ebesuku awa! Emini iye, kazi
Ungayikhamba ungaphakamisi endleleni.
Ebusuku ayaketuka! Emini ayawolwa.
Ngizifihlela into eyendzeka inyezi icalile,
Ngizikhiphela into eyendzeka ilanga licalile.
Intjalo zithaba lihlabile;
Ebusuku uzithola zidanile.
Imilandu yendzeka inyezi icalile,
Bese igwetjwa ilanga licalile.
