Martin is Calling

A song for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin was a king and an angel too.
He began his journey in this life
Much like me and you.
But when the call to justice came
No, he did not turn away,
Martin was a king and an angel, too.

Martin was a lion and a lamb.
He roared the words that shook the world,
More than any cannon can.
From his soul poured the poetry
Of justice and humanity,
Martin was a lion and a lamb.

Did he grab a gun and fire...(NO!)
Did he hate his enemy? (No, no!)
He called to every woman and man,
To walk the high road hand in hand!

CHORUS:
Martin is calling, hear your hearts!
Martin is calling fan that spark!
Then you'll rise and rise and you will not stop
Till you join Martin on the mountain top!

Martin's love's still lifting up this world,
To live and die in service of the light
Is life's most precious pearl!
And every soul can choose to be
A light for all humanity,
Martin's love's still lifting up this world!

Did he grab a gun and fire...(NO!)
Did he hate his enemy? (No, no!)
He called to every woman and man,
To walk the high road hand in hand

CHORUS, then:
Martin is calling, oh Martin is calling!
Then you'll rise and rise and you will not stop
Till you join Martin, till you join Martin on the mountain top!
