Rejoice

Rejoice and shout with laughter 
Throw all your burdens down, 
If God has been so gracious 
As to make you black or brown 
Do  you are a great nation, 
A people of great birth 
For where would spring the flowers 
If God took away the earth? 
Rejoice and shout with laughter 
Throw all your burdens down 
Yours is a glorious heritage 
If you are black, or brown.

— Gladys Casely-Hayford
