I remember that monday morning
When I was subpoenaed to be in court

Many things ran through my mind
I started thinking about the people
All day long, trying to think of something to say to the people

Are you ready for the question?
All in favour, let it be known by standing on you feet

I want young men and young women, who are not alive today
But who will come into this world, with new preivleges
And new oppurtunities
I wnat them to know and see that these new priveleges and oppurtunities
Did not come without somebody suffering and sacrificing for

Freedom is never given to anybody

Like anybody
I would like to live a long life
Longevity has it's place
But I'm not concerned about that now
I just want to do god' will
And he has allowed me to go up to the mountian
And I've looked over
And I've seen the promise land
I may not get there with you
But I want you to know tonight
That we as a people
Will get to the promise land
So I'm happy tonight, I'm not worried about anything
I'm not fearing any man
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the lord

Glory hallelujah, glory hallelujah
Glory hallelujah, glory hallelujah
His tuth is marching on
