🎼 Sing Along With Us 🎼
Lift Every Voice and Sing
Dr. James Weldon Johnson
Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won
Stony the road we trod
Bitter the chastening rod
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died
Yet with a steady beat
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered
Out from the gloomy past
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast
God of our weary years
God of our silent tears
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way
Thou who has by Thy might Led us into the light
Keep us forever in the path, we pray
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee
Shadowed beneath Thy hand
May we forever stand
True to our God
True to our native land
Our native land
One Love

One love, one heart
Let's join together and a-feel all right
One love (full of mercy)
One heart (I tell you)
Let's join together (at this house I pray)
And a-feel alright (and I will feel alright)
Let's join together and a-feel all right
Now, let them all pass all their dirty remarks (one love)
There is one question I'd really like to ask (one soul)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
One love, one heart
Let's join together and a-feel all right
One love (hear my plee)
One heart
Let's join together and a-feel alright
Let's join together (let's just trust in the Lord)
And a-feel all right (and I will feel alright)
Let's join together to fight this holy battle
So when the man comes there will be no, no doom
Have pity on those whose chances grows thinner
There ain't no hiding place among the kingdoms of love, yes
One love (hear my plee)
One heart (oh)
Let's join together and feel all right
One love (full of mercy)
One heart (I tell you)
Let's join together (let this house a-pray)
And a-feel all right (and I will feel alright)
Let's join together and a-feel all right
One love, one heart
Let's join together and a-feel all right
One love (full of-)
One heart (oh)
Let's join together and a-feel all right
Let's join together (let's all pray to the Lord)
And a-feel alright (and I will feel alright)
I tell you, let them all pass all their dirty remarks (one love)
There is one question I'd really like to ask (one soul)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
One love (full of mercy)
One heart (I tell you)
Let's join together (at this house I pray)
And a-feel alright (and I will feel alright)
One love (hear my plee)
One heart (hear my plee)
Let's join together and a-feel all right
Let's join together (let us pray to the Lord)
And a-feel all right (and I will feel alright)
