When God looked at man –
And added color to his skin
He thought “How Beautiful –
I will make more men”
And when he made the black woman
He smiled with glee
For the moment she was created
She was made to be free.
For he knew they would struggle-
He already knew their song
He created them to endure
He made them strong.
He knew they would cry –
For He knew they would see
The love He had for them
They were made to be free.
And He knew if ever the two loved one another
The black woman and man
For the love would be beautiful and strong enough
To rule over the land
That’s black love – Beautiful love
Designed by Christ himself
That’s black love – Bewitching love
Created by God himself.
The power that two black souls create
Once those two hearts combine –
The power is untouched
And the love is divine.
And as the black love starts to grow
And creates an empire within
Sparks will start to fire
As the black family begins.
Black is beautiful. It’s powerful.
Black love creates a fire within
God knew what power Black love would possess
The moment he created their skin.
