Cry,the beloved nation

Cry the beloved nation,
Whose sons bled and died for freedom.
Cry the beloved nation,
Whose tears built a great kingdom.

How long will your children suffer?
Mama,how long  will they hurt one another?

Cry the beloved nation,
Where dreams and nightmares are born.
Cry the beloved nation,
Where families from each other are torn.

Will we ever see the light of day?
Mama,will we receive answers
to the prayers we say?

Cry the beloved nation,
Where internal wars rage.
Cry the beloved nation,
Where death is sin’s wage.

Where did it all go wrong?
Mama,how long shall I sing
this song?
Cry the beloved nation,
This cry of a desperate child never dies
Cry the beloved nation,
Until from the ashes we rise.
