Redemption song lyrics

Verse 1

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


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

Verse 2

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? Ooh
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfil the book


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