"Redemption Song" as written by Edwin Hawkins and Bob Marley....
Oh pirates, yes they rob us
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit

But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the almighty
He fought in this generation
Triumphantly

Won't you help me sing
These songs of freedom
'Cause all I ever had
Redemption song

Emancipate yourself from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
'Cause none o' them can stop the time

How long will they kill our prophets
While we stand around and look?
Some say it's just a part of it
We got's to fulfill the book

Won't you help me sing
These songs of freedom
'Cause all I ever had
Redemption song
