Black History Month



Black history month
it only comes once,
in February,
but never you worry;
It really packs a punch.

Black History
is for you and me
and is for all the world to see.
we are making progress
we have the victory

Black History Days
Are from February one
To the Twenty Eighth
We all now celebrate
The life of Former Slaves

We are uniting people,
for all men are equal;
under God's steeple,
at our beginning,
when we were but fetal

We must trust in Jesus
for by our hearts he sees us
He Promised never to leave us
Thank God, black he made us,
His Salvation and Spirit he gave us

We are loved by Yeshua
most Christians live in Africa
We've seen troublesome day
But for us Jesus Prays,
For By grace, us He saved.
