Afrika You Raised Me

Afrika you raised me
Afrika embrace me
Pain and suffering, hardship doesn’t faze me
Afrika, Protector, you never let them erase me

So here I stand
Feet soaked deep in blood shed in our land
But I will walk hand in hand,
with the wind and the rain,
my companions and fellow soldiers against the pain

Although I stumble over poverty, AIDS, corruption again and again
It’s the spirit of Ubuntu in my people that keeps me sane

Afrika you taught me that no monetary value can be placed on life
Blessed me with ability to find joy in times of strife

Afrika I am strong,
for Afrika you raised me,
continue to embrace me, Afrika!
