"Redemption Song" as written by Edwin Hawkins and Bob Marley....
Old pirates, yes, they rob I
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.
They flourish in this generation

Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic power,
'Cause none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book.

[Chorus: x2]

All I we have
Redemption songs
All I we have
Redemption songs
All I we have
Redemption songs

Re-redemption songs
Redemption songs
