Sister Emanuel

Written for and dedicated to the members

of Mother Emanuel AME Church of Charleston, SC, who in the face of great and unjust loss staunchly continue to live their faith.

 Evil sought to rouse distrust,

Make brothers fight again a war of hate

Aimed at separating what faith would just

Negate with love.  You chose to deflate                              

Unholy plans built on violent pain,

Extend your hands in peace again, and

Love the God who made all men.
