Brother

Brother in arms
Father of the nation
Look over all the children
For another night
Morning awake
They may see the light

Three mules return
To the valley below
Leopard leave them alone
Two black eagles circle
In the cobalt sky

Prisoner set us free
You are who we might be
Look over all the children
At their daily bread
Working to where
You might have led

You will return
To the valley below
Never leaving us alone
Your long walk
To freedom
Will be done
