I want you to see ‘why’ we are here….
We are here to make you see things differently.  
We are not here to take from you, although we would appreciate 
being allowed to live our lives as our means allow.  

I want you to see ‘why’ we are here…. 
We are not here to run the NHS or sweep the streets of London,
although we will do that with joy if that is our calling.
 
I want you to see ‘why’ we are here…. 
You brought the Gospel to us 
But you took away our indigenous spirit
Enforcing on us a culture so alien to us
Wrapped up in the beautiful message of the Cross.
 
I want you to see ‘why’ we are here…. 
We are here to give you a chance to say sorry for your past,
when you travelled to faraway lands and disturbed the tranquillity 
of other cultures enjoyed in their God given lands. 
 
I want you to see ‘why’ we are here…. 
Because we have forgiven you and embraced your
Culture – your music, dance, dress, your language......
 
I want you to see ‘why’ we are here…. 
We are here to announce ‘It is your moment 
dear friend, embrace us for who we are and
Let His Kingdom Come!'
