‘Count On God’ speaks to the courage and sacrifices of those who came before us.
It is a reminder of the fact that we stand on the shoulders of the brave.
Much of what our fore-fathers and mothers went through is untold…
[This is true of those of the Windrush generation.
And those before them who crossed the Atlantic in chains.
As well as those who worked the sugar plantations and the cotton fields,
And many who fell in wars on battle-fields in far away lands!]
And all these sacrifices they made for our future…
Even before we were born!
They counted on God.
For a future.
Not their own !
So be encouraged to stand for what is right.
Fight for what is good.
Not just for you.
But for the weak.
For those who have no voice.
And for those yet to come.
Just as our fore-parents did.
We dedicate this song to our brothers and sisters from Africa who fell during the trans-Atlantic crossings…
