Free of Bonds and Chains

When will we be free of bonds and chains?
For we say we are no more slaves
Why do we think we are not in caves?
When we live our lives like we are in the grave

When will we be free of bonds and chains?
For we have made our enemies our main
Why do we welcome the white man’s lain?
And by their falsehood have we all been slain

When will we be free of bonds and chains?
For we have been deceived by a greed for gain
Why do we find it difficult to abstain?
It’s because we find pleasure in people’s pain

When will we be free of bonds and chains?
For all we ever think of is what to retain
Why do we think there are still some remains?
When we have revealed what was meant to be refrained

When will we be free of bonds and Chains?
For we have killed our brothers like Cain
Why do we think we won’t be whipped by God’s Cane?
When we have fallen deep in the pleasures of sin like Sugar & Cane

When will we be free of bonds and Chains?
For the nations have like prisoners been detained
In the very hands of those whose beliefs we sustain
Now our race are held captives like a ship and her captain

When will we be free of bonds and Chains?
Why do we sell our birth-right and still hope for its regain?
Now like Esau we only have to learn how to maintain
For it is a shame that what was lost can’t be regained

When will we be free of bonds and Chains?
For Our land is dry and none to explain
We need to put our trust in God to drive our train
Then can we hope in God to water our land with rain
