  1. Mandela

From the recording Mandela

Lyrics

You stood in the sunlight
In the prison yard
Ripening like a fine wine for decades
So we could imbibe in your truth
 
You showed us the way
Madiba king of your clan
You were prepared to die for freedom, you were spared
To burn an ember of hope
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela
 
You walked in the steps of wisdom
Of those who came before
Peaceful resistance against oppression, equality for all
peace comes only from peace
 
You showed us the way
Madiba king of your clan
You were prepared to die for freedom, you were spared
To burn an ember of hope
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela
