Honouring Our Ancestors

(Verse 1) In a dark and distant past, a tale of woe,
A chapter in history we all must know,
The pain and cry of our ancestors, we hear,
Their voices echo through the years so clear.

From the heart of Africa, their lives were torn,
In the Transatlantic tide, their spirits worn,
Enslaved and shackled, their dignity denied,
In dungeons dark, in chains, they sighed.

(Chorus) Oh, the pain and cry of our ancestors we feel,
In the depths of cruelty, their wounds, and zeal,
Through history’s pages, their stories unfold,
Their legacy is a testament in our hearts, we hold.

(Verse 2) On ships of torment, like sardines confined,
Profit over humanity, a tragic design,
No space to breathe in the sweltering night,
A journey of horror, their plight in our sight.

Violence and abuse, the whip’s cruel sound,
Innocence lost, in agony, they were bound,
Thrown overboard, a heartless disdain,
Their lives are discarded in the merciless main.

(Chorus) Oh, the pain and cry of our ancestors we feel,
In the depths of cruelty, their wounds, and zeal,
Through history’s pages, their stories unfold,
Their legacy is a testament in our hearts, we hold.

(Bridge) But survivors emerged, their spirits strong,
In the Americas, where they did belong,
Families torn, cultures disrupted, and dreams torn apart,
Yet they rose with resilience, a flame in their heart.

(Verse 3) The pain and cry of our ancestors, we’ll never forget,
Their legacy of courage, a powerful duet,
In their memory, we stand united and strong,
Injustice and inequality, we’ll prove them wrong.

(Chorus) Oh, the pain and cry of our ancestors we feel,
In the depths of cruelty, their wounds, and zeal,
Through history’s pages, their stories unfold
, Their legacy, a testament in our hearts, we hold.

(Outro) Their pain and cry, a reminder for us today,
To stand for justice, to pave the way,
For a world where humanity’s bonds will thrive,
In the name of our ancestors, we’ll keep the dream alive.
