The following lyrics are in a Xitsonga dialect known as Xirhonga (Eastern);

HOSI KATEKISA AFRIKA

Tana moya,

Tana moya tana, tana moya

Tana moya tana, tana moya

Tana moya wa ku xwenga

Hosi katekisa, hine vana vaku.

 

Hosi katekisa Afrika

A dri drumisiwe vitu draku

Yingela minkhongoto yeru

Hosi katekisa, hine vana vaku.

 

Tana moya,

Tana moya tana, tana moya

Tana moya tana, tana moya

Tana moya wa ku xwenga

Hosi katekisa, hine vana vaku.
