1. Mulungu dalitsa Malawi,
Mumsunge m’mtendere.
Gonjetsani adani onse,
Njala, nthenda, nsanje.
Lunzitsani mitima yathu,

Pa nkhondo nkana pa mtendere,
Cholinga n’chimodzi.

Keep it a land of peace.
Put down each and every enemy,
Hunger, disease, envy.
Join together all our hearts as one,
That we be free from fear.
