Pride Of Africa


I'm proud to be an African
To be born of the race of blacks
For the blood runs in my heart
It seize not in times of plight
Even in the face of war
I disown not the name of yours
For I'm like a Christ of Nazareth
Where those believeth not expect less
For it is my father's land
And the tongue of my mother's
I embrace the pain of your fate
Of which the whites made you taste
But in all I've come
Out of the conquer of yours
oh! Africa
It is you i adore
Blessed be you more.
