The Red Nuns do "Jerusalema"


The lyrics of the “Jerusalema” song are in the Zulu language and express our longing for heaven and for God’s loving presence in our lives. They implore God to walk with us, guard us and express our prayer.


This song has become an expression of hope during this time of pandemic. An expression of hope and of gratefulness for all who have put themselves at risk to serve others in this time.


Jerusalema ikhaya lami(Jerusalem is my home) Ngilondoloze(Guard me) Uhambe nami(Walk with me) Zungangishiyi lana(Do not leave me here) Jerusalema ikhaya lami(Jerusalem is my home) Ngilondoloze(Guard me) Uhambe nami(Walk with me) Zungangishiyi lana(Do not leave me here)

Ndawo yami ayikho lana(My place is not here) Mbuso wami awukho lana(My kingdom is not here) Ngilondoloze(Guard me) Zuhambe nami(Walk with me) Ndawo yami ayikho lana(My place is not here) Mbuso wami awukho lana(My kingdom is not here) Ngilondoloze(Guard me) Zuhambe nami(Walk with me)


Performed by people of many different cultures, languages, races and walks of life during this time, “Jerusalema” is a reminder that we are all united in one human family, that we are brothers and sisters called to live as one.
