JEWEL OF AFRICA

BEAUTIFUL CHILD OF UGANDA SUFFERING 
AND YOU KNOW NOT WHY 
THE SUN HAS BEEN BLOTTED OUT OF YOUR WORLD 
YOUR REALITY IS DARKNESS AND FEAR 
WHO WILL RESCUE YOU FROM THIS NIGHTMARE 
REMEMBER JESUS IN HIS REJECTION 
“MY GOD, MY GOD WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME 
FATHER INTO YOUR HANDS I COMMIT MY SPIRIT” 

DON’T BE AFRAID, STAND FIRM AND YOU WILL SEE 
THE DELIVERANCE OF THE LORD, FOR HE HAS HEARD YOUR PLEA 
THE ENEMY YOU SEE NOW, YOU WILL NEVER SEE AGAIN 
THE LORD WILL FIGHT FOR YOU, YOU NEED ONLY TRUST IN HIM 

REMEMBER A DISCIPLE WALKS BY FAITH AND NOT BY SIGHT 
CAST YOUR CARES ON HIM 
FOR HE IS RAISING UP AN ARMY OF PRAYER 
SENDING HIS ANGELS TO YOUR SIDE 
HOLD ON, THE LORD IS COMING SOON 
HIS LOVE WILL BE POURED OUT ON YOU 
HE WILL GIVE TO EVERYONE THEIR JUST REWARD 
FOR HE IS THE BEGINNING AND THE END 

CHORUS

YOUR SUFFERING WILL NOT BE IN VAIN “JEWEL OF AFRICA” 
THE LORD WILL SEE YOU AS HIS PEARL 
YOU WILL BE A VICTORY SONG FOR ALL NATIONS 
AND THE CAUSE OF REVIVAL 
FOR ALL WILL KNOW OUR GOD IS A MIGHTY ONE 
THE FATHER TO THE FATHERLESS 
NO LONGER WILL VIOLENCE CRUSH YOUR LAND 
FOR YOUR WALLS WILL BE SALVATION AND YOUR GATES PRAISE 

CHORUS

ONLY TRUST IN HIM, ONLY TRUST IN HIM, ONLY TRUST IN HIM, TRUST IN HIM.

Uganda is a beautiful country with much poverty and pain. This little girl is the granddaughter of a wonderful lady who lost her family in the Lord’s Resistance Army war. Her husband left her because she became a Christian and would not participate in bootlegging liquor anymore. She has persevered working long hours in an orphanage and raising not only her own children but other family children. In eternity, God will reward faithful Christians like Mama Claire for their endurance and love for God!
