Anandi

Lyrics

You stood in the sunlight

In the prison yard

Ripening like a fine wine for decades

So we could imbibe in your truth

 

You showed us the way

Madiba king of your clan

You were prepared to die for freedom, you were spared

To burn an ember of hope

Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela

Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela

 

You walked in the steps of wisdom

Of those who came before

Peaceful resistance against oppression, equality for all

peace comes only from peace

 

You showed us the way

Madiba king of your clan

You were prepared to die for freedom, you were spared

To burn an ember of hope

Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela

Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela
