Genesis 1:27; Exodus 6:2-8
We work for racial justice now, for true equality;
come, Sister-Brother Spirit, come, and help us all be free.
We work to stop injustice now, to end oppressive ways;
come, Sister-Brother Spirit, come, and guide to better days.
O Sister-Brother Spirit, help us know your breadth and height;
each culture, every color shows your image dark and bright.
Come, Sister-Brother Spirit, come, and heal our wounded past;
together we shall overcome, and all be free at last.
We are claiming the promised land; we are claiming the promised land;
come, sisters, brothers, hand in hand; we are claiming the promised land.
