It wasn't the valley of death, I was walking in It was the valley of confusion for many years Different religions, different beliefs Undermining my culture Looking down upon my tradition Making fun of my language Telling my children, they have no God Finally I can tell them about, Shembe is the way
Chorus Oh SHEMBE thank you for showing us the way. Shembe nobunazaretha.
Oh SHEMBE thank you for healing my people. Shembe nobunazaretha.
Shemebe is the way.
I hear them shoulting Amen, At the top of the mountain I hear them shouting Uyingcwele At the top of the mountain. No one will undermine my religion No one will undermine my culture anymore, Cause God sent him from above, to be with the people. Bring them back to what is their own Take them back to the ways Of our forefathers.
Finally I can tell generations and generations That Shembe is the way
Chorus Oh Shemebe THANK YOU FOR SHOWING US THE WAY. Shembe Nobunazaretha.
