Come Black Man

   Come Black man
   Created in the image of God
   You are so precious to me
   Through sometimes I drive you away
   Please forgive me

   Come Black man
   Let me walk by your side
   Beaming on the inside with pride
   As I see you soar
   To places you have not been before

   Come Black man
   Sanding above your past
   Come and love your Black Queen
   Tenderly embracing the woman
   In your wildest dream

   Come Black man
   Standing dignified and fine
   I want to embrace you inwardly
   With my whole heart, body, soul, and mind
   I long o love you deeply and completely
