Lyrics:

Madiba, dedication to Nelson Mandela

A wise man plants a garden where there is bloodshed. He plants Understanding where there is hatred. He waters it with the tears of the ones who are oppressed; he warms it with the memories of the fallen ones, and it bears Hope: a garden to be equally shared; a garden to be equally shared.

Madiba, Madiba, your long walk brought Freedom!
Hear the people sing! Madiba, Madiba, you carried Redemption home! One man can change the world; one man can change the world.

A great man is willing to die that Justice be done. Imprisoned far from his loved ones for twenty-seven years in a nation torn apart by the laws of apartheid where people were persecuted for the colour of their skin - but he forgives. He sees the good in all mankind; he sees a way to reconcile.

Madiba, Madiba, your long walk brought Freedom!
Hear the people sing! Madiba, Madiba, you carried Redemption home! One man can change the world; one man can change the world.

A strong man gives a voice to those who had no choice, and the petals of Equality blossom with Dignity. He reaches far and wide to hear the words of all humanity, and the ones who worked to right the wrong are in his heart and in his soul; he carries on. He’s the tree of strength sprung from their well;
he’s the tree of strength sprung from their well.

Madiba, Madiba, your long walk brought Freedom!
Hear the people sing! Madiba, Madiba, you carried Redemption home! One man can change the world; one man can change the world; change the world.
