‘Lefatše le Letle’ praises the land made by God; and ‘the land’ here is not the earthly world but heaven, a place one enters after death. Together with ‘’Mōpi oa Lefatše’ and ‘Le Lekaakang’, two similar songs in Mohapeloa’s 3rd songbook, this one reminds us how central Mohapeloa’s faith was to him, and how important the life of the Lesotho Evangelical Church was and remains, in the life of Morija in Lesotho, where the composer spent most of his life. Only 16 bars long, these are among his shortest songs.
