To the Most High

St.Giyorgis Cathedral,
In Addis Ababa,
After League of Nations betrayal.
I saw Tafari Makonnen
Approaching and Kneeling
Praying to the Most High.
I saw Ras Tafari
Broken by the lie
Praying to the Most High.

Sacred Lalibela,
The mountains called Lasta,
The worst days of his life.
I saw Tafari Makonnen
Bowing and Kneeling
Calling to the Most High.
I saw Ras Tafari
Water in his eye
Praying to the Most High.

Ethiopian Church,
Old Jerusalem,
The start of his exile.
I saw Tafari Makonnen
Prostrating and kneeling
Pleading to the Most High.
I saw Ras Tafari
The groan and the sigh
Praying to the Most High.

Somerset England,
Geneva Switzerland,
Fighting for Ethiopia.
I saw Tafari Makonnen
Praising and Kneeling
Appealing to the Most High.
I saw Ras Tafari
Head towards the sky
Praying to the Most High.
