A South African chorus “Ukuthula”

Ukuthula Lyrics – UJ Choir (with thanks to Gadifele Moroaswi)

 

Ukuthula  kulo mhlaba wezono (Aleluya) igazi likaJesu linyenyez’ ukuthula
Peace in this world of sin (Halleluja) the blood of Jesus brings peace

Usindiso kulo mhlaba wezono (Aleluya) igazi likaJesu linyenyez’ usindiso
Redemption in this world of sin (Halleluja) the blood of Jesus brings redemption

Ukubonga kulo mhlaba wezono (Aleluya) igazi likaJesu linyenyez’ ukubonga
Praise (gratefulness) in this world of sin (Halleluja) the blood of Jesus brings praise (gratefulness)

Ukukholwa kulo mhlaba wezono (Aleluya) igazi likaJesu linyenyez’ ukukholwa
Faith in this world of sin (Halleluja) the blood of Jesus brings

Ukunqoba kulo mhlaba wezono (Aleluya) igazi likaJesu linyenyez’ ukunqoba
Victory in this world of sin (Halleluja) the blood of Jesus brings

Induduzo kulo mhlaba wezono (Aleluya) igazi likaJesu linyenyez’ induduzo
Comfort in this world of sin (Halleluja) the blood of Jesus brings

  1. The morning of July 20, 2012 I heard this song and it moved me. I did not know why. Shortly thereafter I heard of the shooting rampage at a midnight opening for “The Dark Night Rises.”. Twelve people killed, over 50 wounded by a disturbed 24 year old. This translation sheds light on why it moved me so.
