United Hands

By Lue Bratton-Lampley


My ancestors unlocked the pain

My forefathers held the links to the chains

The next generations join hand and hand

We’re united all over this land


United hands each generation

The power behind me

Hearts beat beside me

The clan of my family tree

Each and everyday

We have God to praise


When I begin to write

This spirit is a guiding light

Sometime I don’t want to sing

This spirit touch the pain

I can open my mouth, it speaks for me


United hands each generation

The power behind me

Hearts beat beside me

The clan of family tree

Each and everyday

We have God to praise

(When singing repeat)
