Freedom Is Coming

(Praise, Prayer, General)
A protest song from South Africa sung by people struggling against apartheid calling for freedom and justice. We can sing it along with everyone who still suffers oppression. As we sing we also recall  the Bible promise that a time will come when justice will be seen over all the world and suffering will end, meaning freedom for all. The part of the leader can be taken by a solo singer or a small group.
