Thulasizwe / I Shall Be Released
Traditional
This is a medley of the traditional Zulu song "Thulasizwe" and Bob Dylan song "I Shall Be Released".

The words of "Thulasizwe", repeated several times in different combinations, are

  Thula sizwe, ungabokhala,
  uJehova wakho uzokunqobela.
  Inkululeko, sizoyithola.

which means (as far as I can tell)

  Be still, country, do not cry,
  Jehovah will conquer for you.
  Freedom, we will find/get it.
