By Glorine   

Brown is the color of my skin
Drawn from God’s earth it must have been
Bright are my eyes the window of my soul
A gift from my lord so I’m told

Tall in stature do I stand
Over all the beast put upon this land
I come from good stock from across the sea
They have helped me to see just what I can be

Reach back to those who suffered and died
Reach back I say and have great pride
Look up to the Lord and have no fear
To tell the whole world …..
Thank God I’m here
