Soweto Sounds: Ke Na Le Modisa

Elaine January 8, 2009 Audio, Features 6 Comments


Ke Na Le Modisa, sung in Sotho, is an interpretation of Psalm 23.

Lyrics:

Sotho lyrics
Ke na le modisa – ke tla be ke hlokang?
Ke ya ipitsang Jehova – molimo o phelang
O nkisa botaleng, lijong tse mphelisang
O nkalosa dinokaneng – metsing a nkholisang
Lira li ka ntlhoya – ke sa ja monono
Mohope oa khaphatseha – ke dutse ka thabo

English translation
The Lord is my Shepherd
I shall not want
His name is Jehova, the living God
He leads me to cool waters
