Marcus Mosiah Garvey Poems
A Black Man's Prayer
Send Thy peace to all this world, Lord of nations and of man- Where blood banners are unfurled. In their wicked sinful den.
The Tragedy of White Injustice
(1) Lying and stealing is the white man's game; For rights of God nor man he has no shame (A practice of his throughout the whole world)
A Black Man's Speech to a White Man in A...
I'm not as educated, sir, as thee, But God Almighty's sun I see, And you may treat me very hard for this, But I His Holy Hand shall kiss.
The Black Woman
Black queen of beauty, thou hast given color to the world! Among other women thou art royal and the fairest!
Hail! United States of Africa
Hail! United States of Africa-free! Hail! Motherland most bright, divinely fair! State in perfect sisterhood united,
The Black Mother
Where can I find love that never changes Smiles that are true and always just the same, Caring not how the fierce tempest rages,
All men have troubles of their own, And burdens great to bear each day, So keep your tales of woe, and frown At all the ills that come your way:
Africa For The Africans
Say! Africa for the Africans, Like America for the Americans: This the rallying cry for a nation, Be it in peace or revolution.
Suns have set and suns will rise Upon many gloomy lives; Those who sit around and say: 'Nothing good comes down our way.'
Black And White
I'm black not white, which is no crime; To have all things makes one so great: If blacks did have, all whites would crave
What Is In Thy Bosom? Pluck It Out - Is It Genius, Is It Talent For Something?
A Summer's Dream
As I lay asleep at midnight, A thought came stealing over me: A shadow of a great disaster,
A National Hymn
1. Oh God of ages past, and age that ne'er shall end Bless Thou our fervent hope, And to our President Thy graces lend
Freedom's Noble Cause
1. Behold the day, a cent'ry old, When fathers' cares were lifted off: No more, as chattels to be sold,

A Black Man's Prayer
Send Thy peace to all this world,
Lord of nations and of man-
Where blood banners are unfurled.
In their wicked sinful den.
Sin may reign upon the throne,
In man's way of seeing right;
Thou art Lord in truth; alone
Thou canst set all sin to flight.
Black men crushed to earth each day
Raise a voice of pleading now:
Come good Lord we all do pray,
Make the tyrants humbly bow.
For since God is God alone,
And vile man is man for that,
And will not of self atone,
Treat him, Lord, as virus rat.
White is great upon the earth,
Greater than the King of ...
