I've known home

(Awuah-Mainoo Gabriel)

An African child singing through a horrible perspective of the gory and inhuman actions he has seen during the days of slavery, which he has come to accept the fact that despite whatever be the case whether good or bad; things must be gladly embraced on the land of birth. This boy depicts the heroic attitude of Africans.

I've known home, Since the dawn of my birth, I’ve felt home I've known the surveyors of this wall, I've known profound artists Who drew with their blood on this wall. And I've heard aloud ‘Marley and Dube’ Whose rhythms brought life to a dying land. Refrain: Memories of this land are like scars on my soul Immortal Undying Endless No matter how small the meal is The meager is sufficient, I’ve known home. No matter how worse things be The bitter always seems better. I’ve known home, Where the spirit never dies. Jah Jah bless my home, ooh Jah bless this land. I've known home Since the dawn of my birth, I've felt home, A land holier than Gomorrah, A holier Land than Rome, A land peaceful than the serene Breathe of an infant limb. I've lived the lives of my ancient people And built my pride with sands of their grave I've grown to love, But never loved by the oppressor. Refrain: Memories of this land are like scars on my soul Immortal Undying Endless No matter how small the meal is The meager is sufficient, I’ve known home. No matter how worse things be The bitter always seems better. I’ve known home, Where the spirit never dies. Jah Jah bless my home, ooh Jah bless this land. After the dawn of birth I've known oppression, Never felt mother's warmth, Never heard Father's voice for so long.
