I've been searching high and low for lyrics to a Zulu hymn, and stumbled across this site. The hymn is "Umthombowase Golgotha (The Well of Golgotha)." I would greatly appreciate any leads anyone can give me.

Try spelling "Golgota" without the "H".

Ladysmith Black Mombazo sings UMTHOMBOWASE GOLGOTA on the various-artists compilation album "Rhythm of Resistance: Music of Black South Africa," Shanachie CD 43018, 1990, which is also available as a DVD.

I couldn't find any sound samples or lyrics.

Ladysmith Black Mombazo can be heard singing it at that YouTube link. Good luck transcribing the lyrics.

Also heard here: The Original Ladysmith Black Mambazo - Umthombo wase Golgotha

"Umthombo waseGolgotha"- "Description: New Zulu Church service hymn ; English translation of title: 'The spring in Golgotha'" greenstone.ilam.ru.ac.za/cgi-bin/library...

On the other hand there is this: "Umthombo waseGolgotha means The well of Golgotha or better The Golgotha well. "isiZulu.net forum
