The birth of civilization
The cradle of mankind… See More
The lost Garden of Eden
The hidden Jewel of Africa
The proud lion of Judah
Sons of the warrior
Daughters of the proud
Ethiopia the horn of Africa
Blowing the melody of the undefeated
Bowing only before God
Standing against our tormentors
12 months was too short
To realize your beauty
So God blessed you with another
Conquered by none
Vanquishers of colonizers
Sent to America
Living life on the fast
Have we forgotten our culture?
How long will it be
Before we forget our own past?
