Pearl of great price
A black pearl unwanted
Your unique beauty was seen
Worth beyond measure

Sheep that was found
One black sheep out of ninety-nine
The Shepherd left the others
To find you, to choose you

Black brother and sister
Oppressed and exploited
Beautifully crafted, wonderfully made
Freedom by the Blood

Black pearl of great price
Black sheep dearly loved
Black man, black woman
Bear news of salvation
Witness love and grace
