    Let us all say GRACE
    As we gather round tables
    Laddened with blessings

    Sometimes we forget
    We’ve come a mighty long way
    Africa………………………(Timeline)………………………….Today

    Curse them anyway…
    Surely would have been better
    If they’d let us stay

    And yet… still we rise
    In AmeriKKK
    Facing GROWING pains…

    Each and every day
    Not really free…nor a slave
    Thank God for roads paved

    Marcus Garvey-ites
    Stand up and raise a closed fist
    In tribute and praise

    To our leaders…past
    May God forever impress
    Ancient memories

    It took a village
    To survive that middle sea
    Wrapped in UNITY

    For eternity…
    That’s how it should always be
    Peace …Love…Harmony

    We weren’t defeated
    Thank God for your history
    Now bow your heads please…
