In this Baha’i Blog Studio Session, we’re in Manzini, Eswatini with Modison Magagula accompanied by Xolani Tsele and Sanele Nhlabatsi, singing “Free Thyself” in Swati and in English, from the Writings of Baha’u’llah.

This song was filmed and recorded in Manzini, Eswatini, December 2018.

Lyrics & Quote

SWATI

MAYE SISEBENTI SAMI!
Tikhulule emaketengeni alomhlaba, ukhulule nemphefumulo wakho kulelijele lebumine. Lisebentise lelifuba lakho, ngoba alisoze labuya kuwe futsi

Baha’u’llah

ENGLISH

O MY SERVANT! Free thyself from the fetters of this world, and loose thy soul from the prison of self. Seize thy chance, for it will come to thee no more.

Baha’u’llah
