Nine Martyrs in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel

Nine Martyrs in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel,
nine welcoming.
Nine Martyrs in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel,
nine praying.
Nine Martyrs in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel,
nine dying.

Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.
A trinity of threes.

Three saints for the Father,
Three saints for the Son,
Three saints for the Holy Ghost.
Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.

Devil, he come down South to Charleston town,
wearing a mask.
Dylann Storm Roof, the mask on Satan’s face
that Wednesday night.
Spraying out hell from the barrel of a gun,
spraying out hate.

Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.
Nine bullets he fired.

Three shots for the Rebel flag,
Three shots for the K K K,
Three shots for George Zimmerman.
Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.

Nine saints in the Temple of the Lord,
this morning.
Nine saints in the Book of Life,
this morning.
Nine saints at the Feet of Jesus,
this morning.

Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.
Nine names in the Book.

Clementia, Daniel and Ethel Lee,
Tywanza, Depayne and Susie,
Sharonda, Cynthia and Myra.
Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.

Nine Martyrs in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel,
nine welcoming.
Nine Martyrs in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel,
nine praying.
Nine Martyrs in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel,
nine dying.

Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.
Nine Saints in the Arms of Mama Emmanuel.
Oh, Mama. Oh, Mama.
A trinity of threes.
