    deep depression of
    men , women of color in
    the struggling world

    we may face it at
    birth born into submission
    tugging away life

    but faith within is
    my keeper not a massa
    but the grace of GOD

    someday somehow and
    someway we shall overcome
    as people in hold

    Overcoming self
    Becoming one with the Lord
    Seeing the rebirth

    Knowing all we are
    But loving us anyway
    Unity in prayer

    Kings and Queens unite
    In a class act of sharing
    majestic treasure

    Knowing ones blessings
    inspite of the twist and turns
    Still there's compassion

    I raise my eyes up
    My soul embrace's his grace
    He cleanze out my heart

    He says, live today
    I'll still be there tomorrow
    I'll always love you

    He is my father
    The force that drives me onward
    I'll rest in his hands

    all walks of life is
    our solo goal to bonding
    as one kings and Queens

    forth the faith in thy
    father above whom knows within
    our pure struggle

    being downtrodden
    oppressed and thought second best
    scorned and degraded

    my soul rises up
    gets stronger from the pressure
    turn bad into blessing

    Chained in the midnight
    I sink deeper into the dusk
    It isn't long until

    The first rays of light
    Shine upon this weary soul
    And broken spirit

    Still I rise above
    My turmoil into great peace
    Resting in God's embrace
    Sweet bliss in his lap.

    The lashes strike me
    Thought God had forsaken me
    But he has welts too
