Focus on: Malawi National Anthem

Mlungu dalitsani Malaŵi, Oh God Bless our Land of Malawi in English, is the national anthem of Malawi. It was composed by Michael-Fredrick Paul Sauka, who also wrote the words. It was adopted in 1964 as a result of a competition. Here is the lyrics.

Mlungu dalitsani Malaŵi

Chicheŵa



Mlungu dalitsani Malaŵi

Mumsunge m'mtendere.

Gonjetsani adani onse,

Njala, nthenda, nsanje.

Lunzitsani mitima yathu,

Kuti tisaope.

Mdalitse Mtsogoleri nafe,

Ndi Mayi Malaŵi.

Malaŵi ndziko lokongola,

La chonde ndi ufulu,

Nyanja ndi mphepo ya m'mapiri,

Ndithudi tadala.

Zigwa, mapiri, nthaka, dzinthu,

N'mphatso zaulere.

Nkhalango, madambo abwino.

Ngwokoma Malaŵi.

O Ufulu tigwirizane,

Kukweza Malaŵi.

Ndi chikondi, khama, kumvera,

Timutumikire.

Pa nkhondo nkana pa mtendere,

Cholinga n'chimodzi.

Mayi, bambo, tidzipereke,

Pokweza Malaŵi.

English translation




O God bless our land of Malaŵi,

Keep it a land of peace.

Put down each and every enemy,

Hunger, disease, envy.

Join together all our hearts as one,

That we be free from fear.

Bless our leader, each and every one,And Mother Malaŵi.

Our own Malaŵi, this land so fair,

Fertile and brave and free.

With its lakes, refreshing mountain air,

How greatly blest are we.

Hills and valleys, soil so rich and rare

Give us a bounty free.

Wood and forest, plains so broad and fair,

All - beauteous Malaŵi.

Freedom ever, let us all unite

To build up Malaŵi

With our love, our zeal and loyalty,

Bringing our best to her.

In time of war, or in time of peace,

One purpose and one goal.

Men and women serving selflessly

In building Malaŵi
