She Won This Right...

With Her Own Mind.

So Don't You Think

If She Does This, This

For Our Other Children Too.

For All Colored Children.

Dear Lord, Let It Be

Just A Closer Walk With Thee

Just A Closer Walk With Thee

Just A Closer Walk With Thee

A Message In There.


If We Walk With The Lord,

If We Stay With The Lord,

We Are Never Alone,

Even When It May Seem So.

Today We Are

A People Under Fire.

There's No Denying That.

There's No Denying The Fact

That America Does Not

And Have Not Embraced Us.

You Been Keeping Up

I Don't Have To Tell You,

Brothers And Sisters,

That Every Day

There's A New Plan...

To Keep Us Down,

To Keep Us Out,

To Keep Us Oppressed.

Yes, Lord.

But, Hallelujah,

I Got Some News

For You Here Today.

- In Order For Us To Rise Up,

- [ Cheering ]

In Order For Us

To Rise Out,


We Gonna Have To

Stay Before The Lord!

Yes! Hallelujah.

We're Goin' On Through.

In Spite Of The Opposition,

We're Persevering.

We Gotta Know That God

Will Deliver Us, That

He'll Bring Us Through.

[ Congregation Applauding,

Agreeing ]

[ Pastor ]

Hallelujah, Hallelujah,

Hallelujah, Hallelujah.

So You Ain't Gonna

Be Walkin' With Us
