Lift Every Voice and Sing

Black National Anthem

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 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.
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,
Let us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet, stray from the place out God,
Where we met thee;
Lest our hearts; drunk with the wine of the world,
we forget thee;
Shadow beneath thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God,
true to our native land!
