In ons hoop op wat sal wees,

In ons wil en werk en wandel,

Van on wieg tot aan ons graf

Deel geen ander land ons liefde,

O suig 'n spuitpoep, jy wyd doos.
Chris, jy is 'n ware genie. J

I never mentioned anything about the language having an official status, but it was spoken in Rhodesia by a not-insignificant number of speakers.
