Mighty soul, your day is done
your long journey is done,
your long, long battle is gloriously won./
Mighty soul, mighty soul, the bowl
of your spirit is filled with wisdom and light,
O how very bright, how very bright
is your being.
From your mouth flowed words of wisdom,
from your eyes blazed the fire of freedom,
your very presence radiated an all-encompassing magnetism.
Like a mini-sun you shone
and now mighty soul from our presence you are gone.
And yet surely even from heavens incandescent domain
a portion of your bright spirit will descend to remain;
to continue to guide and bless,
to remind all men again and again never to oppress,
to remind all men again and again that in Almighty Gods sight all are one.
Mighty soul how the song of unity in you sung,
how the song of ongoing reconciliation from you was outward flung,
to touch all peoples of whatever faith or creed,
your great light drew them - sewed in them the seed
of love, of recognizing the good in all./
Mighty soul how gloriously you fulfilled your destiny,
taking on the mantle of truths reality,
your eyes seeing what others could not,
the light of a great unification for our nation
and the whole world that the darkness and evil of separatism
could not obliterate.
Mighty soul you showed and taught not to hate
and thus you brought the nation to the gate
of a new and wondrous dispensation.
Let men never forget your legacy,
or be lured into the transiency of greed for wealth and power and status.
Let us work to keep the light of the rainbow nation bright./
Mighty soul filled with unification and reconciliations passion,
how great is your compassion./
