He has no power
Halleluya
He has no power
Satan's had it!

He has been cheated
Halleluya
He has been cheated
Satan's had it!

He flees far from us
Halleluya
He flees far from us
Satan's had it!

Comment:

A very powerful song, in its total denial of any other power than the positive. During South Africa's apartheid-era, when power seemed to rest in diabolic hands, the affirmation of this song was a potent weapon. It was songs like this one, and its underlying conviction, that gave people the courage and determination needed to confront the abuse and humiliation. It was this jubilation, sung in the face of oppression, that finally gave the people a possibilty to jubilate in freedom.
