Siminzise umuntu ethi uyageza
Waze washona nangesicoco
Ngobucoco ngimbonile
Ubephuma laphaya kwaSodlabela
UNgama yena waseMaphiseni angavuma

Uqambi lankomo

AmaNtungwa odwa esab’ukumehlela

IZichwe uVezi azimhlabanga eya phambili
Zalibala ukumbuka izinyawo
Zathi ziyakumhlaba esegoduka
Kuth’esegoduka zase zilibele
Ukubamb’izingxangx’emfuleni

Bantu ninemihlola ngaseNsingweni
Gijimani niyotshela  abakwaMashobana
Nifike nithi lukhulu luyeza luyanyelela
Silufanisa noNdaba wawoBayeni
Silufanisa noPhunga noMageba

AbakwaMashobana belelesile
Bazibukule itshe linemamba

NoNgwane kaZikode wanyamalala

Ofingq’amehlo ethunzi lentaba
Wangangabazingeli bakoNogenya
Abazingel’izimbongolwana

USobathintela !
UMalamlela !
Owalamulela abafazi namadoda
Walamulela izintombi namasoka

IMbuzi kaDambuza benoNdlela
Abayibambe ngendlebe yabekezela
AyinjengekaMdlaka ngaseNtshobozeni

Izingazi zaphuma ngezimpumulo

Ngoba lakhahlela elakwaBulawayo
Lakhahlela uMagaye kwaDibandlela
Lakhahlela uNzwakele kwaKhushwayo
Lakhahlela uMadlanga wasEkuvukeniUMakhonjwa ngendololwane

Kwasabel’uMdleleni kwasabela uMakhatha
UMalunguza izindonga kandukuwela
Ogeze izandla zaze zomel’eBandla
Ngokuba nhliziyonhl’emadodeni

INzima leyikwena koMkhumbane
Khona kwena kungafakwa lunyawo
Ugaga ngamanzi angawes’umlomo
Amanzi odwa asal’ebabaza

Mlung’ungapheshela komfula
Omunye enganeno
KukaMpehlela noMaqhwakazi
UNdaba ungithume phezulu
Ngabuya ngaqangqatheka
Ngalala ngidlile nangakusasa
Nangolwangomhlomunye

Gijimani ngazo zonke izindlela
Nime phezu kwamadwala
Niyobikela uNsimbini noMahlakeza
Ukuthi kabamazi uVezi
Ukuthi yiNsizwa kubi

Angahl’athathe isihlangu
Asihlom’umgobo
Ame ngasemnyango kwaMpikase
NakwaBhibhi kuze kuse evevezela
Engasalalanga nabuthongo

Idadane belimzimba muhle*

Bathi zishaye ngezelongwe
Zibizwa yinduku yeThusi
Yakithi eMgungundlovu

UPhondo lwendlovu uMashiqeka
Belushiqel’Mandlanga ngasoFasimba
Inhlabathi yoNdi noKhahlamba
Ngifice abakwaMalandela beyihlela
Nami ngafika ngahlala phansi ngahlela

Nyakamumbe uVezi
Uzakungipha neph’qithole

USingqungu kakhulumi kanamlomo*
KanjengoShaka
Yena waqeda umuzi ngokunkenkeza
Amanzi kaMalinga abeyiziwolokohlo
Abenjengawo awakwaBulinganto
Wona abengesiwolokohlo

Mnguni ngubande nakwesendlovu
INkonyane ekhwele phezu kwendlu bayihawuza
Kwangalokhu bahawuza ezawonina
INtandane kaMphehlela noMqhwakazi
Evele uMkhindi wanyamalala
UMjele ogubaze amadlebe
Emva komuzi waseZimpukaneni
Izinkomo zaphuma zamlandelaUngangisiza Madlokovu
Uye kwaMthanuntengayo

Ogudl’amahlathi engayi kuwo
Ogedle iNtumeni wagudla iShowe
Uvunulela ezingunjini zomfula
Wesaba izinto zakho
Zingaze zemuke namanzi

UDledle ongankomo zecala
Zona zimabuya nasekwalukeni
Inkom’ezungez’umuzi nangezinyembezi
IMamba eyath’iphansi yayiphezulu

UMjikiza ungamashoba eziNyathi
Uze noGaqa ezalwa nguMendameli
Uze noZikhawu ezalwa nguQumbumbethe
Uze noNondaba ezalwa nguDubo

Uyithathe wayaba oDlambedlwini

Uye wayibuthisa eMahlabaneni
KuMkabayi ezalwa nguYisemkhulu
Uwele ngomnyama eMahlabaneni
Izalukazi zakoPhuthule
Zayithwala iminqwazi
Uwel’uSuthu ngezinyembezi

Uyakubuthisa koMagonondo noMyando
Udabule kwaNtabakayikhonjwa
Izichwe zayithwala imililomo
Kwabathi, ‘Qha, bo bo bo bo bo bo !’

Izimpangele ziyawulabalabela
Uzulu ladum’ekuseni
Ladum’ekhaya
Umnyama wendlu yakoPhuthile
Ukhethelwe zimbongolwana phezu kweGwa
Udabule kuLubisana esegijima

Uhambe ngokhalo lwamathafa
Lukadedangendlale
Waye wayiuthisa oBhalule
Uth’ephuma oBhalule
Waye walal’eNkuthu
Waye wawela eBulinga kwaMzilikazi

INyok’eqoph’umqala yashiya isibili
Yathi izoqedela ngomhla izovela
Insimu ethi ukuvuthwa yaxholoba
Yathi ukusuka
Zayidl’amanhla zayishiy’amazansi

Unkomo zinezisini emlonyeni
Zinqundeke ziyokuphuza eMhlahlandlela
UMgabadeli onjengebhubesi
Odonswe ngezintaba ezimakhelekethe
Injonjololo engaziziba zolwandle

UVezi uMaphakamela**
Owaphakamela iNkunzi yakwaBulawayo
UQhamana!UNdabende wamakhanda
USigongonono esinkabi legodla
Ebikhetha iziqhozana kungezakoYengwa

Indab’engiyizwe ngikude
Engiyizwe  ngisoBonjeni lwezinyathi
Ngabheka emuva
Ngajiyelwa lapha ngiya ngakhona

Ngendaba kaMbopha benoNkunziyendlovu**
UMzaca ongwegwe
NgokaMbopha benoNkunziyendlovu
Othukuzelwe futhi eMahlabaneni
Bawufihle nami ngaze ngathanda
Bathi bayogalela ngawo kwaBulawayo

UDingana omnyama ngabomu
Ukhanya phakathi kukaFojisa
benoNomagoma
Impunga engene ngamahlashana onkana
Kanti ibiyobulala umuzi kungokaGendeyana

Ungezwa bethi ”Dlula ! Dlula! Pheqe
kaNdaba!”
Kanti basho oVemvaneni
Ngemuva kwakho bakugodlele
Amaklwa kanye nezinqindi

Odazule kuZulu umfo kaNogandaya
UZulu wabaleka wabhangazela
Ukuma kweqhawe lethuka iNkosi
Ukuma kweSilo sethuka esinye iSilo
Ukuma kweZilo ziyethukana

INkonjan’ebuwaba busephikweni**
Engenjengazinkonjane zasendlo
Zona zibuwaba buseqolo
INhlendla yeThusi kaMjokwane

UMbomb’oye wakhanya
kuMsalela kwaNxumalo
UHlahla lomnqawe neloMqokolo**
Bathi ukulivuna kwabo balihlohloloza
UMsontane ongambo yomnxeba
Ngisho ngamazwi
Abakusontela wona abakwaZulu

Mdingi kaMpikase
USo linkonyeni zabantu
Induku emnyama kaPhunga noMageba
Eyasha amanzi kwavela udaka
Emuva kodaka kwavela izinomoUntakantinsi zinqwamene phezulu
Angiqedi nezophuka iphiko
USomkhanda ngokubakhandanisa
INyoni kaMahube uMashulubeza

UShikila limuva muhle
Unkomo zimakhekheba
Ngokuhamba zihlala

IJaha elinamandla nasemandleni
UZul’libeth’izihlambi
ULanga laphuma endlebeni yandlovu
Nyakamumbe liyakuphuma kweyeNgonyama

Yaminz’iNdlovu!
Ulibinda Zul’eliphezulu !
Ulibinda Ngonyama !
Ulibinda Silo !
Ulibinda Ndlovenkulu !
