No name could adequately capture your greatness.
Yet you have chosen to kindly deal
the downtrodden, the forgotten, and the useless.

From you they learned how to be human
Knowing that one is only because
Others are, knowing your greatness can
Not be contained and completed in one person.

They taught us that belonging to you
Is belonging to one another.

Send us in us the Spirit of Ubuntu
and give us power to overcome
barriers that divide us as people.

With you Lord we are restored to glory
With our sunkissed skins and all different
Shades, diverse and delicate,
For the sake of your glory
