(Sung in Xhosa)

Eyethu indaba (Our story)
Ayipheleli lapha (Does not end here)
Iphelela emaphakadeni (But ends in eternity)

A zula zule (He [shepherd] searches high and low)
Afune eyodwa (For one sheep)
Elahlekile emadleleni (Lost in the pastures)

Jesus Keep Me Near the Cross by Mthunzi Namba (JC 19)

(A Hymn)

Jesus, keep me near that cross;
There’s a precious fountain,
Free to all, a healing stream,
Flows from Calvary’s mountain

Refrain:
In that cross, in that cross,
Be my glory ever
Till my raptured soul shall find
Rest beyond the river (Repeat)

Near the cross I’ll watch and wait,
Hoping, trusting ever
Till I reach that golden strand
Just beyond the river

(Refrain)

Lyrics by Fanny J. Crosby

How Majestic is Your Name
Oh Lord in all the earth
Your Name is Strong and Mighty
Your name is Glorious and Great
In Him we are saved

Refrain:
The Name of Jesus, Higher than other names
King of all kings, no other Name like His
The Name of Jesus, Higher than other names
Alpha and Omega, no other name like His

Your Name, like sweet perfume
Poured upon my soul
In your Name we overcome
In His Name there’s victory
His Name is powerful

(Refrain)

Bridge:
Every other God is deader than dead (?)
Jesus died and rose again
We lift Him higher
In Your Name, every knee shall bow
In your Name all men are saved
We call upon the name

Call his Name
Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!
Oh Jesus! (Repeat)

(Languages: English, Zulu)

Siya Phambili, ngo Jesu, ngo Jesu x4
(We are marching forward, with Jesus)

Creator of heaven and earth,
The first and the second birth
There’s no one greater than You
You light up the universe
And darkness hides its face
There’s no one greater than you

Refrain:
You’re the strength for the weak; When they shout your name
You’re the hope for today; When we do the same
For the sun and the moon Soon will fade away
You will never fade, You remain
Be glorified, be glorified, oh God!
Be glorified, be glorified
For all the things you’ve done
Be magnified, be magnified, oh God!
For all the things you’ve done
And what is still to come
Siya Phambili, ngo Jesu, ngo Jesu (x?)
(We are marching forward, with Jesus)

(Refrain)

Bridge:
Marching towards your light, marching towards your grace
Great is the LORD almighty
Forward towards your light; Forward towards your grace
Our praise to the saving king
Siya Phambili, ngo Jesu, ngo Jesu (x?)
(We are marching forward, with Jesus)
