Night and the spirit of life calling
Oh, oh, iyo mamela oh, oh, iyo
And the voice with the fear of a child answers
Oh, oh, iyo iyo mamela

Wait! there's no mountain too great
Hear these words and have faith
Oh, oh, iyo
Have faith
Hela hey mamela, hela hey mamela
Hela hey mamela, hela hey mamela

He lives in you, he lives in me (hela hey mamela)
He watches over everything we see
Into the waters, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives in you

Dream, and the voice in the wind whispers
Oh, oh, iyo, iyo mamela oh, oh, iyo

Wait! there's no mountain too great
Hear these words and have faith
Oh, oh, iyo

He lives in you, he lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the waters, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives in you

Ingonyama nengw enamabala
Ingonyama nengw enamabala

He lives in you, he lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the water, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives in you

He lives in you (oh yeah), he lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the water, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives, he lives, he lives, he lives in you

He lives, he lives, he lives in you
He watches over everything we see

    When we die we become part of the earth, people eat things that grow from the earth, meaning we live on in everything.

    I'm not even christian but i can see how people make the connection. If you didn't know it was inspired by the lion king it would be the next logical jump. That's the beauty of art, of creating things, once you've created it - no matter your intention i ots meaning, people will be free to give it their interpretation and frankly, to tell anyone they are wrong in what they see in art, be it words, films or songs, is wrong.

    This reminds me of the idea of namaste from buddhist/hindi beliefs, the idea that there is a connection to all of us. I think this song is so universal no one can "claim" it is about god. For all we know it could be that its talking about dna! Stop hating and realize we all have the same thing running through our veins. Namaste fiends

    Um most animals don't have the restraint of dogma. I think this message is so simple we are all a part of each other.

    Lebo m. The composer of the sound track is a confirmed christian. Undoubtedly the work was inspired by that.

    "i loved gospel, and it was my first wish to hear the choirs at an african american church," says lebo

    This is why people take art history classes. So that they know where the artist is coming from. But it doesn't take a art historian to understand that there are christian meanings in this song. And it doesn't take an expert to understand that symbolism is always apparent in art. Just because it had a literal meaning in the movie doesn't mean it didn't have a deeper meaning otherwise. Now i would say something to the fact that christians are being called out for being ignorant. But in truth we all know that the point is being made out of a misplaced anger toward us. Why you would go to the lengths of acting out because we feel some connection to this song as christians... I don't know. But i love this song. The child in me loves it and the christian in me loves that and you can't take that away from me.
