HIS NAME IS FREEDOM

by Larry L. Jordan

 

1. What’s it gonna’ be, Mama, this child you’re gonna’ bear

Will it be the kind of little one you’ll have to share

With every living creature, with folks of every land,

Or will it hide forever beneath your sheltering hand?

 

CHORUS

Now the time’s upon us, what can it be?

The struggle’s getting greater, but soon you shall be free.

Your newborn child you’ll finally give to all humanity

And his name is freedom, and his name is love.

 

2. I remember, Mama, the tales of long ago

Of He who came and died for you because He loved you so

And He place the seed within you that now is nearly grown

That’ll bring the greatest happiness the world has ever know.

 

CHORUS

Now the time’s upon us, what can it be?

The struggle’s getting greater, but soon you shall be free.

Your newborn child you’ll finally give to all humanity

And his name is freedom, and his name is love.

 

3. You felt the life within you as your children fought and died

As the little ones were starving and their freedom was denied

With selfishness and bigotry and hate on every hand

These were Mama’s labor pains she felt in every land.

 

CHORUS

Now the time’s upon us, what can it be?

The struggle’s getting greater, but soon you shall be free.

Your newborn child you’ll finally give to all humanity

And his name is freedom, and his name is love.

 

4. Your child is coming, Mama, I can see it in your eyes

As a million happy children lift their music to the skies

As a hundred million hands are reaching out to help a friend

The new world that’s a comin’, Lord, I know will never end.

 

CHORUS

Now the time’s upon us, what can it be?

The struggle’s getting greater, but soon you shall be free.

Your newborn child you’ll finally give to all humanity

And his name is freedom, and his name is love.

And his name is Zion…. And his name is love!
