Ease my spirit
Ease my soul
Please free my hands from this barren soil
Ease my mother
Ease my child
Earth and sky be reconciled

Rain

Weave my mother
Weave my child
Weave your baskets of rushes wild
Weave my mother
Weave my child
Weave your baskets of rushes wild

Under the sun comes the hunger to everyone

Famine's teeth
Famine's claws
On the sands of Africa

Rain

Weave my mother
Weave my child
Weave your baskets of rushes wild
Weave my mother
Weave my child
Weave your baskets of rushes wild
