Ni dyar’izuba, Rizagaruka, Hejuru yacu
Ni nduzaricyeza ricyeza

Rwanda, Rwanda
Yeah Rwanda, Rwanda

They said: “Many are called and few are chosen”
But I wish some wasn’t chosen
For the blood spilling of Rwanda

They said: “Meshach Eshach and Abednego
Thrown in the fire but you never get burned”
But I wish that I didn’t get burned in Rwanda

They said: “The man is judged according to his works”
So tell me Africa, what’s your worth?

There’s no money, no diamonds, no fortunes
On this planet that can replace Rwandaâ?¦

Rwanda Rwanda
Yeah, Rwanda Rwanda
These are the cry of the children
Rwanda Rwanda
Anybody hear my cry?

If America, is the United States of America
Then why can’t Africa, be the United States of Africa?

And if England, is the United Kingdom,
Then why can’t Africa unite all the kingdoms and become United Kingdom of Africa?

Rwanda Rwanda, Rwanda Rwanda
Yeah, yeah
These are the cries of the children, yeah
Can anybody out there hear our cries?

Yeah, heavens cry, Jesus cry
Lord, did you hear us calling you?
Yeah, Rwanda Rwanda
Lord, did you hear us calling?
Can you do something in Rwanda?
Rwanda Rwanda, Rwanda Rwanda

I’m talkin’ ’bout Jesus; talkin’ ’bout
Rwanda Rwanda Rwanda
Talkin’ ’bout â?¦ talk’n ’bout
Talkin’ ’bout â?¦ talk’n ’bout
I wanna play my guitar for Rwanda
