46664  46664  will never die away,
Will never die away, will never die away.

Greetings from Reggae Soldier
It’s my pleasure appreciating great Mandela
May u see the light of God and King of life bless I n I Rasta.

Chorus
Mandela thank you for all you did to Africa
Madiba we appreciate all you did as Africa…*2

Giving in your whole life, whole heartedly
You won your people freedom
Now it’s the time for other leaders
To serve their nations with a heart like yours,
You are the candle of peace left to shine this world in glory
And your identity will never die, your candle will blow off.

Chorus
Mandela thank you for all you did to Africa
Madiba we appreciate all you did as Africa….*3

You shall always live with us spiritually eh
Your legacy and reputation will be seen for ever.
You played your part and now it’s our time eh ‘to fulfill your dream
You are a sign of unity and the strength we need today.
Rising out of bondage was a flashing light of freedom,
You laid us a foundation of enlightenment and emancipation
You are worthy to be a hero Mandela.

Chorus
Mandela thank you for all you did to Africa

Sleeping on a mat, you won your people freedom
