We bless you, Mandela!

We bless you, Mandela!
To you honour belongs.
Earth’s ochres colour you,
birds praise you with song.
Yellowwoods lean to you,
milkwoods shade you long.
Stars shine on you,
around you lions throng.
Elephants trumpet you,
children’s praise is strong.
In your name we all pledge
to do Peace no wrong.
