Congos - Open Up The Gate

(Cedric Myton)

Song Lyrics

Biblical Reference

Open up the gates of Zion
Psalm 118:19 - Open to me the gates of righteousness:
I will go into them, and I will praise the LORD:
Isaiah 26:2 - Open ye the gates, that the righteous
nation which keepeth the truth may enter in.
Africa we want to go
Africa we want to go

Repatriation is at hand
I and I know where the Black man stands

To the west coast of Africa
East, north and south
Repatriation is a must

Jah said unto the south 'give up!'
To the west 'keep not back!'
Send my sons from afar
And my daughters from the end of the world
Isaiah 43:6 - I will say to the north, Give up;
and to the south, Keep not back: bring my sons from far,
and my daughters from the ends of the earth;

Please send the Father
The Almighty One of Creation
Living inna man
The Almighty Redeemer
The Word, Sound and Iwa
Living inna man yeah

Ooh allelujah!
Listen to Father
Almighty Bongo Ashanti I and I
Living inna I and I
Mighty, mighty Redeemer of Creation
