This one caught my attention for the reference to God, Heaven and the singer's hope that it would resemble his "Old Kalahari"

Ver in die Ou Kalahari daar sing die Boere so
Gee ons die Ou Kalahari die Ou Kalahari bo*

*from Afrikaans: Far in the Old Kalahari, the Boers sing so
Give us the Old Kalahari the Old Kalahari above

In misty plains all around me the burning sun and sand
Lovely and peacful surroundings my old Kalahari land

Sonbesies sing in jou bosse die hittige son te versmaai
Rooi Afrikaner-osse sien jy om elke draai
Ver in die Ou Kalahari tot daar in die Molopo
Gee ons die Ou Kalahari die Ou Kalahari bo*

*from Afrikaans: Cicadas sing in your forests to spoil the hot sun
Red Afrikaner oxen see you every turn
Far in the Old Kalahari until there in the Molopo
Give us the Old Kalahari the Old Kalahari above

--- Instrumental ---

When I am called on safari
By him whom I cannot deny
I pray that the old Kalahari
Will be part of that land in the sky...
