Lyrics:

"Glory"
(with Common)
[John Legend:]
One day when the glory
comes
It will be ours, it will be
ours
One day when the war is
won
We will be sure, we will be
sure
Oh glory
[Common:]
Hands to the Heavens, no
man, no weapon
Formed against, yes glory
is destined
Every day women and men
become legends
Sins that go against our
skin become blessings
The movement is a rhythm
to us
Freedom is like religion to
us
Justice is juxtapositionin'
us
Justice for all just ain't
specific enough
One son died, his spirit is
revisitin' us
True and livin' livin' in us,
resistance is us
That's why Rosa sat on the
bus
That's why we walk through
Ferguson with our hands
up
When it go down we woman
and man up
They say, "Stay down",
and we stand up
Shots, we on the ground,
the camera panned up
King pointed to the
mountain top and we ran up
[John Legend:]
One day when the glory
comes
It will be ours, it will be
ours
One day when the war is
won
We will be sure, we will be
sure
Oh glory
Now the war is not over,
victory isn't won
And we'll fight on to the
finish, then when it's all
done
We'll cry glory, oh glory
We'll cry glory, oh glory
[Common:]
Selma is now for every
man, woman and child
Even Jesus got his crown
in front of a crowd
They marched with the
torch, we gon' run with it
now
Never look back, we done
gone hundreds of miles
From dark roads he rose,
to become a hero
Facin' the league of justice,
his power was the people
Enemy is lethal, a king
became regal
Saw the face of Jim Crow
under a bald eagle
The biggest weapon is to
stay peaceful
We sing, our music is the
cuts that we bleed through
Somewhere in the dream we
had an epiphany
Now we right the wrongs in
history
No one can win the war
individually
It takes the wisdom of the
elders and young people's
energy
Welcome to the story we
call victory
The comin' of the Lord, my
eyes have seen the glory
[John Legend:]
One day when the glory
comes
It will be ours, it will be
ours
One day when the war is
won
We will be sure, we will be
sure
Oh glory
[John Legend:]
When the war is won, when
it's all said and done
We'll cry glory, oh glory


Review:
By Lemuel Irabor

''This song takes me right back to the 1900s racist America..
Where black men and women like me refused to be shut up,and eschewed the ostracism placed on them by the whites.
Rosa Parks,Martin Luther King Jr and the others like them fighting for equal rights among the races.
Because of their sacrifices,blacks in America are able to enjoy equal rights today.

Quotes
''I have a dream,that one day my four little children will not be judged by the colour of their skin..but by the content of character.''
-Martin Luther King Jr

''Today,we reap the fruits of the sacrifices of men,women and children who sowed in blood and toiled in sweat.We should not forget who we are.
Blacks,African-Americans,Coloured,Negro..whatever they call us,we shouldn't mind that.
What matters is what we calls ourselves,how we define ourselves..
For in the long run,those who oppress us shall see that we cannot be overcome,for we do not overcome ourselves''

-Lemuel Irabor
(2017)
for my black brothers and sisters all over the planet.
