Nkulunkulu Mnikati wetibusiso temaSwati is die volkslied van Eswatini (voorheen Swaziland). Dit is 'n kompromie tussen Swazi- en westelike style van musiek en is ná die land se onafhanklikheidswording in 1968 aanvaar.[1] Die lirieke is geskryf deur Fanyana Simelane, en die komponis van die tone was David Rycroft.

O Lord our God, bestower of the blessings of the Swazi;
We give Thee thanks for all our good fortune;
We offer thanks and praise for our King
And for our fair land, its hills and rivers.
Thy blessings be on all rulers of our Country;
Thine alone is our Lord;
We pray Thee to grant us wisdom without deceit or malice.
Establish and fortify us, Lord Eternal.
