Our Land

Our Land

South of the Sphinx, stands our sacred land

a home to people who reflect Earth’s sand

two oceans keep ancient mysteries in its bed

of our ancestors, and the mountain resembling a lion’s head


Written by time’s hand

united we shall stand

for our father took a walk, long and slow

to bring us the gift of a rainbow


In the valley of the kings of old

there is a city of gold

humming the great story

of the land in the south rising to glory


Sounding the call of our people to come together

with hearts as light as a feather

the Sun promises to rise upon the golden sand

in South Africa, our land
