Unfortunately, most of the links given above don't work.

I was hoping to hear the clip of JennyO's choir, but I guess I'm three and a half years too late.

Here's the lyrics as found on :

Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika

Nkosi Sikelel' iAfrika (Lord Bless Africa)
Maluphakanyisw' uphondo lwayo (May her glory be lifted high)
Yiva imathandazo yethu (Hear our petitions)
Nkosi Sikelela (Lord bless us)
Thina lusapho lwayo (Us your children)
Yihla Moya, (Come Spirit)
Yihla Moya, yihla Moya,
Yihla Moya,
Yihla Moya, yihla Moya,
Yihla Moya oyingcwele (Come Holy Spirit)
Nkosi sikelele (Lord bless us)
Thina lusapho lwayo. (Us your children)

Morena boloka sechaba sa heso, (Lord we ask You to protect our nation)
O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho, (Intervene and end all conflicts)
Morena boloka sechaba sa heso,
O fedise dintwa le matshwenyeho.
O se boloke, o se boloke, (Protect us)
O se boloke morena se boloke,
Sechaba sa heso (Protect our nation)
Sechaba sa heso

Ma kube njalo! (Let it be so)
Ma kube njalo!
Kude kube ngunaphakade, (Forever and ever)
Kude kube ngunaphakade!


That website also has a sound clip.
