Mama dips you in prayer

White frees all colors, Black embraces them

Revealing in its shades, all, we hold dear

White sneers at colors, Black devours them

Revealing in the shadows, all, that men fear


Prejudice is a judgment, 

preceding its crime

Innocence is a child, 

time after time


Glimpsing white and its colors 

As black embraces them

Humming up a rainbow 

And a new anthem


White frees all colors, Black embraces them

Revealing in its shades, all we hold dear

White sneers at colors, Black devours them

Revealing in the shadows, all, that men fear


Prejudice is a judgment, 

preceding its crime

Innocence is a child, 

time after time


And it’s time, so don’t linger

Lake Peace is calling dear

It’s the same stuff, my luv, that lights you up

When mama dips you in prayer
