       Take me back to my boat on the river
             I need to go down, I need to come down
           Take me back to my boat on the river
                             And I won't cry out any more
  Time stands still as I gaze in her waters
           She eases me down, touching me gently
   With the waters that flow past my boat on the river
                                 So I don't cry out anymore

                                                   Oh the river is wide
             The river it touches my life like the waves on the sand
                                             And all roads lead to tranquillity base
                                               Where the frown on my face disappears
                                                 Take me down to my boat on the river
                                                           And I won't cry out anymore

                                     Oh the river is deep
   The river it touches my life like the waves on the sand
                     And all roads lead to tranquillity base
           Where the frown on my face disappears
                   Take me down to my boat on the river
           I need to go down, with you let me go down
                 Take me back to my boat on the river

                                       And I won't cry out anymore

                                             And I won't cry out anymore

                                         And I won't cry out anymore

The Nubian People [ The Nubians ]

The Nubians of Northern Africa embrace a history and tradition that is easily traced to the dawn of civilization.
The Nubians hold esteemed credentials that identify them as the very first people of whom modern archaeologists have evidence of from northeastern Africa.
The Nubians settle along the great Nile River from Aswan Egypt, to south of Sudan's capital of Khartoum.

The Nubians are an ancient people dating back to 4000 BC. Numbering approximately one million, the Nubians in both Sudan and Egypt
suffer from intentional discrimination because of their non-Arab descent. Following the construction of the Aswan High Dam in 1960,
the Nubians faced a painful exodus from their ancient dwellings. Hundreds of thousands of Nubians were forced to leave their homeland
because of flooding from the newly constructed dam. They were dispersed to less fertile areas in both Sudan and Egypt.
Great Nubians monuments and historical sites were lost as a result of the construction of the dam. The Nubians lost their ancient homeland in the 1960's,
but their culture and heritage remain ever constant. The Nubians are non-Arab Muslim tribes who speak mostly Arabic.
Although Nubians once were strong Christians during the sixth century, they are virtually all Muslims today.
The Nubians were converted to Christianity during the sixth century. They remained Christians until the gradual process of Islamization began to take place
from the fourteenth until the seventeenth centuries. The Nubians hold a few vestiges to their Christian past.
The symbol of the cross is still seen in the decorations of many Nubian homes.

In addition, children are dipped in the Nile at the age of three days which is reminiscent of baptism.

                                                                                                                 I suza mi otire trag

                                                               Ta rijeka sto zivot mi dira ko val pjescani zal
                                                   Sve puteve vodi u duboki mir
                             Gdje grc mi na licu se brise
