A Slave's Prayer

Views: 162

O Lord" hear my cry

how my tears chill

to the ground I be thrust

as my face pillow dust

Lord"in you I still trust

I see yonder, its coming

its a coming

dawn's dusk, beckon me

this arch in my back

with labored hands in agony

It want get the best of me

I do it,for my children

and my children,children

They lash my backside

my skin split open wide

they can't strip my black pride

I see yonder its coming,its a coming

Lord" I want be dismayed

I was born a ...

I will die a slave

to all my kindred

this road I have paved

Lord" have mercy

I see yonder,its coming

yes indeed,its coming !
