A Tribute To Black History

Our Fathers


Truly, it was God who brought us out
to this great land of liberty.
For it was God who brought freedom about
though struggling through captivity.

Truly God, gave them the will to persevere,
and the strong desire to sustain
that would keep them through the days of fear
so their legacy would remain.

Truly, it was God's will that we're here today
to look back at them with pride.
At fathers who were survivors and say
We're here cause God was by their side.
