South African National Anthem (multilingual; since 1997)

( isiXhosa / Xhosa: )
 
Nkosi sikelel' iAfrika
Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo,
 
( isiZulu / Zulu: )
 
Yizwa imithandazo yethu,
Nkosi sikelela, thina lusapho lwayo.
 
( Sesotho / Sotho: )
 
Morena boloka setjhaba sa heso,
O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho,
O se boloke, O se boloke setjhaba sa heso,
Setjhaba sa, South Afrika — South Afrika.
 
( Afrikaans: )
 
Uit die blou van onse hemel,
Uit die diepte van ons see,
Oor ons ewige gebergtes,
Waar die kranse antwoord gee,
 
( English: )
 
Sounds the call to come together,
And united we shall stand,
Let us live and strive for freedom
In South Africa our land.

«Since 1997, the South African national anthem has been a hybrid song combining new English lyrics with extracts of the hymn Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika (God Bless Africa) and Die Stem van Suid-Afrika (The Call of South Africa).»
