"The Way of Unetlanvhi Uwetsi"

They came
They forced their way
They oppressed the Native
They brought others to oppress

Yowah, You know the history
You are Nugvwiyusv
The Almighty
You see the darkness

You came into our darkness
So that we all could be free
You saw what would happen
And in You is the way

The way not only to de-colonize
Not only for the freedom
of the oppressed
But also for the oppressor

“Bless those who curse you
Pray for those who persecute you
Love your enemies
Love as I have loved you”

They seared their conscience
as with a hot iron
They killed their hearts
by killing others

Fill us with Your holy love
Your love for our enemies
Help us seek their freedom
and not only our own

We need Your grace to forgive
To love them as You love us
To ask You to pardon
To ask You to save them

Beloved community
The lion together with the lamb
The oppressor and oppressed
Redeem us all, Tsisa
