Prayer for our land

By Akha Khumalo

The earth lets out a sigh

She is bleeding

Wounded to the core

Her people are hurting

They know not what they do

They are frightened and angry

Broken people in a broken land

Hear us oh Lord

We call upon you now

We need your grace

We need your love and forgiveness

Heal our land today

Make Mother Earth glad again

Lest we forget who we are

We are Africans

Proud and fierce

We are warriors

We protect our land

We love her and she nurtures us

This is who we are

Heal our land

  1. I hope this could reminds many that Mother Earth nurtures us, maybe we would treat her better in return.
    Thank you Akha, for always saying it best.
