Many Voices Sing A Song (In Answer To Ha Fagan) - Poem by Gert Strydom

Many voices sing a song
that asks the blessing of God
over the whole territory,
the continent of Africa

and there are millions standing there
everyone settled in one continent
Zulu, Xhosa and every Shangane
as if planted by Your own hand,

but where is the place of the Afrikaner,
where the Afrikaner can also flower?
Of the white woman and man
that comes from this earth?

We are down trodden, everyone expelled,
Boers, that You Yourself cause to sprout here.
