The father of the land you are
The father of the land you are, when hope was lost you showed us that freedom exists,
Victory you brought to this once parted land many died for,
You shown us where there is hatred and struggle could be peace.
The father of the land you are, forgiveness you showed us is a way to success and freed'm,
27 years you were kept though you never gave-in to resolute,
Freedom you brought to our native land South Africa.
Father of the land you are, vindictive you showed us it's no path to freed'm though amiability is,
With your strong words you removed the hindrance in our broken hearts, b'cause your words were inevitable.
The father of the land you are, you brought glory in this native land which was once mangled, when the dark cloud petrified our land you illuminated without contemptuous feelings,
Hope you brought when we lost it,
Father of the land you are considered to be now and forever when you're gone Tata.
