Sweet Honey in the Rock, a black singing group, has made this piece popular; they shared the text they got from an African native with Daniel Hughes. The Swahili text translates: We are marching in the light of God. A fine addition to this genre of music.

Sin nje ngemi thandazo
We are like this because of prayer

O mama bagudala, Babethandaza.
O our ancestors, they were praying

Siyahamb ekukanyen' kwenkos,
We are marching in the light of God.

Siyahamba, hamba,
We are marching, marching,

Siyahamb ekukanyen kwenkos.
We are marching in the light of God.
