Joseph Hill - Too Long in Slavery lyrics

Too long the people's hidden in the darkness (Oh milord!)
Now is the time, now is the time
That we all should see the light
Civilisation begins here

Now, it's been too long
Too long, too long in slavery
Free us god
Now, it's been too long
Too long, too long in slavery

But we were brought here
To do a very necessary job (job job job)
Now that the work is over, we want to know when we will be returned
That's what we ask

They stole us, away from africa
Could not let you buy
Not at our will
But stole us away on these three ships
Do you want to hear what's their names?
But they are races, Jesus
Races, Jesus, of god

This is my way of loving, and that is the destruction of poor black people
Too much of that

[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/joseph-hill/-/too-long-in-slavery.html]
Now, it's been too long
Too long, too long in slavery
Black man get up, stand up blackfoot
Now, it's been too long
Too long, too long in the slavery

Why, milord? (3x)
My mother suffer, my father suffer
My brother die in penitentiary, under solitary confinement

Why milord? (oh lord oh lord)
All the international morality is at stake
Why milord?

Now that the work is over, we want to know when we will be the returned
Couldn't believe you see, they stole us away on these three ships

Now, it's been too long
Too long, too long in slavery
Free the people and let them move in liberty
Now, it's been too long
Too long, too long in slavery

So the struggle continue..
But while the struggle continue, I'm going to tell you

We rastaman will set the world free
