Original Lyrics in Lesotho

Lesōthō fatše la bo ntat’a rōna,
Ha ra mafatše le letle ke lona;
Ke moo re hlahileng,
Ke moo re hōlileng,
Rea le rata.

Molimo ak’u bōlōke Lesōthō,
U felise lintoa le matšoenyeho;
Oho fatše lena
La bo ntat’a rōna
Le be le khotso.

English Translation of the Lyrics

Lesotho, land of our Fathers,
Among the lands it is the most beautiful.
It is where we were born,
It is where we grew up –
We love it.

God, please protect Lesotho,
Spare it from wars and troubles.
Oh, this land,
Land of our Fathers,
May it have peace.
