Saint Martin of Atlanta


O Holy Spirit
Come and show me the truth
So I can tell the Truth
To Everyone
The Righteous live on
In the hearts of those who believe
They shine their light
And expose those who deceive

America - True Land of Liberty
Stretching forth from Sea to Sea to Sea
Power of unequalled industry
The Leader in prosperity

But your mentality 
Has outrun your morality
Superfluous Wealth 
Exists with Abject poverty
Segregation kills
Basic human unity
Bridge this abyss

The God of the Universe eventually takes a stand

Born into the Church
Nourished in the eye of God
For a Holy purpose
For a battle to be fought
Atlanta's uneasy surface
Propped up by racist rot
Punctured by his birth
A man not to be forgotten

Saint Martin
Of Atlanta Georgia
Manifested
The Kingdom of God on Earth
Equality 
In the eye of Lord Jesus
The greatest
Of the Civil Rights Prophets

Love will save our world
And our civilization
Love even for enemies
You can't see straight when you hate
Love the individual
Who does the evil deed

While hating the deed that this person does to you.

Injustice anywhere
Is a threat to justice everywhere
Never feel that the cause
Of righteousness and justice
Is doomed
We have cosmic companionship
Forever working thru history
For the establishment of His kingdom
Never give up

No lie
Can live forever
The universe
Is on our side
In the struggle
Stand up for justice
Go out
With that faith today

For when people 
Get caught up
With that which is right
If they will sacrifice
There is no stopping point
Short of victory

Mine eyes have seen the Glory of the coming of the Lord

Martyr's Creed


Lord God Almighty

Because you have considered me worthy of this day and hour
To receive a portion, among the number of the martyrs,
Among whom may I be received today 
As a (rich and acceptable) sacrifice,
In the cup of your Christ
Unto the resurrection 
The resurrection of eternal life
Both of body and of soul
In the incorruption 
of the Holy Spirit,
Just as you have prepared and revealed (beforehand), 
And fulfilled,
Receive me today
O undeceiving and true God.

For this reason
and for all
All these things
I praise you
I bless you
I glorify you,
Through the eternal 
Heavenly high priest
Jesus Christ, your beloved Son
Through whom to you
With Him 
And the Holy Spirit
Be glory now 
and forever, 
Amen.

Father of your beloved and blessed Son Jesus Christ
Through whom we have received knowledge of you
God of angels and powers
And every created thing
And all the race of the just
Who dwell before you,
I bless you

In the cup of your Christ
Unto the resurrection 
The resurrection of eternal life
Both of body and soul
In the incorruption 
of the Holy Spirit,
Receive me today
O undeceiving and true God.

Saints and Prophets


Long ago
In ancient times
They spoke the word
To a world gone blind
Their righteous mind
Could see what's real
And get a holy nation
On its knees to kneel

You need ears to hear
That tiny voice
The voice of God
Deep in your heart
You need eyes that see
A tongue that speaks
To speak the truth
The absolute

Saints and Prophets are all around
Lending a helping hand when you are down

That nation stumbled
In full retreat
Defeated by
Their own deceit
Words of wisdom
Were ignored
They fell under
A foreign sword

You need ears to hear
That tiny voice
The voice of God
Deep in your heart
You need eyes that see
A tongue that speaks
To speak the truth
The absolute

Pray for one another
There is power in
A righteous prayer

When you see injustice
How do you respond
Look away unnoticed
Do you move along

Somebody tells a lie
About a truth you know
Do you keep your silence
Do you let it go

Salvation
Is personal
Jesus saves
The righteous soul
Out of the grave
Into the dark light
Death don't shatter
The unity of Christ

You need ears to hear
You need eyes that see
Take up the cross
Just like the Boss
Be someone who is
Not a fool that aint
Do the will of God
And you are a saint

Saints and Prophets are all around
Lending a helping hand when you are down

Let the dead
Bury their own
You must go
Proclaim the word
And do the work
The promised land of
God almighty
Is at hand

You need ears to hear
You need eyes that see
Take up the cross
Just like the Boss
Be someone who is
Not a fool that aint
Do the will of God
And you are a saint

Saints and Prophets are all around
Lending a helping hand when you are down
