The Negro Mother’s Song

Amid the night’s tranquility, my dear,
I sing a song for you to hear.
A melody of dreams so grand,
Of freedom's touch and justice's hand.

I hum of times when chains were tight,
And we fought bravely for our right.
Of heroes past whose spirits soared,
In the face of hatred they roared.

With every note, I wish for peace,
A world where love and hate can cease.
Where dreams are not deferred or lost,
But bloom and flourish without cost.

I sing of days when you'll stand tall,
With courage strong and never fall.
In every struggle, hold your ground,
Let hope and faith always be found.

So close your eyes and dream with me,
Of a future bright and free.
For you, my child, will make it true,
The dream of freedom, pure and new.

Suffering for Centuries

From shores unknown to chains so tight,
We bore the weight of endless night.
Through centuries of pain and strife,
We fought to claim our rightful life.

With every tear and every sigh,
We held our children, aiming high.
In fields and homes, we toiled away,
Dreaming of a brighter day.

Our voices strong, our spirits high,
We never ceased to ask for why.
In silence deep, our hopes were born,
From dawn to dusk, we faced the storm.

Though shackles tried to bind our will,
Our hearts stayed true, our hands stayed still.
We nurtured dreams in darkest hours,
And drew on strength from hidden powers.

For centuries, we bore the flame,
Of freedom’s call and justice's name.
Our legacy, of strength and grace,
Endures within our children's face.

The Negro Mother’s Prayer

In the stillness of the pew, I kneel,
And to the heavens, my soul I reveal.
With folded hands and tearful eyes,
I pray for strength as each day flies.

Oh Lord, grant justice, pure and bright,
For my children, give them light.
Through trials and shadows, keep them near,
Let them know that you are here.

Protect their steps, guide their way,
In every night, in every day.
May they find a world that's kind,
Where truth and peace are intertwined.

I ask for courage, deep and strong,
To right the paths that may be wrong.
Let their dreams be bold and free,
As they rise to dignity.

In this humble church, I raise my voice,
In your mercy, let them rejoice.
For in your grace, we find our song,
In your love, we all belong.
