A Little Song for Martin Luther King, Jr.

I’ll sing about a King who had a Dream
When Justice lost her way, he gave her light
A light on which her two-edged sword could gleam
He helped her stand again for what was right

A King protects his people when it’s dark
He gives them hope and hopes it will increase
A King can raise a flame from just a spark
This King is MLK, a King of Peace

He told us not to wallow in despair
He quoted, “men are . . . equal,” as was said
In something which our Fathers did Declare
Like them, his heart was pure; his blood was red

Though others might believe his dream is past
His dream lives on, and he is free, at last!
