Redemption Song
(Bob Marley)

Lyrics

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
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly

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

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy
'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"

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

Old pirates yes they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit

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"

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

'Cause all I ever have
Redemption songs
These songs of freedom
These songs of freedom
