Listen to the cry of the children of Africa
The children of Somalia, children of Rwanda
Burundi, Liberia, Sierra Leone and the Congo
Oh your Majesty, have mercy upon them

[Chorus:]
Eagerness, eager-eager
Eagerness, eager-eager
Eagerness, eager-eager
Eagerness, eager-eager... (2x)

A voice is crying in the wilderness
Calling all Zion children to come home, now, now
It's a long time you've to Babylon
Mother Zion is eager to see you coming home
Come and hold the forth, brothers
Please come let's build up the foundation one more time

Chorus

[Bridge:]
Come home Zion children, come home Zion children
Come home Zion children, come home Zion children
Come home Zion children, come home Zion children
Come home Zion children, come home Zion children

Babylon is your foe
You've got to chant her down, now, now, now
A toad does not run in the day time for nothing, no!
So come let's fight against this oppression
I can see Freedom on the rise in Africa
Yes, we'll be free without any apology
Cos, Jah created Africa as Paradise on earth
That's why Mother Zion is eager to see you coming home

Chorus... Bridge to coda
