1. Chemutengure


ah iye~ all of life is One     
ah iye~ Love is One for all 
So now the time of Chemutengure has come
The wagons of a foreign culture brought the greed and glory of another peo-
ple to the ancient land of Zimbabwe
Where rivers meet there will be confluence
The waters of all oceans taste of salt
Chachemutengure viri rengoro (Now is the time of Chemutengure)
Chemutengure ('A happening~ confluence')
A stranger took me in and called me bro-
ther. Now I hear the rhythm and the beat
But I do not come from that land where this
music was born, my ancestors they speak
The people come to Zimbabwe, and so
her muse spreads to the world, chemutengure
Chachemutengure viri rengoro
Born in a stream it follows to the sea
The steelhead ventures forth among the sharks
For years it lives and breathes that salty sea
Until the day it swims upstream~ back home
ah iye~ all of life is One
ah iye~ Love is One for all
