Ketshepile Wena, Ketshepile Wena (I trust in you, I trust in you)
Ketshepile Wena, wena fela (I trust in you, you God)
Gareng ga matlhomola,gareng ga ditsietsi, (In the midst of problems,in the midst of troubles) Ketshepile Wena, wena fela (I trust in you, you God)

(Second part sung in Sotho) Sawulahlela Ekhalvari, Umthwalo wezono zami (It was washed away in Calvary, the weight of my sins)
Wanyamalala, Wanyamalala, umthwalo wezono zami (It is gone, it is gone, the weight of my sins)
