Sons of Africa

Amid disquieting dreams in the night 
When deep sleep fell on all men
And it seemed,
Africa will be forever in a deep slumber
In the deep shadow of the deepest night
A vision was secretly brought to me
My eyes caught a glimpse of a splendorous future
Of the sun risen upon Africa
And the new dawn in all beauty and splendour
Spreading upon her mountains and valleys

Hey you sons of Africa
Why stand by the sideways
And like spectators watch
The corruption that is in Africa
Let the morning get up
And the dawn begin the work
Take Africa by the edges
And shake the wickedness of night out
Bring everything to light
Reveal all the colours and shapes
Snatch away from the wicked leaders
Their cover of darkness
Fold like a garment and put away
The old Africa and her deeds
