I Have a Dream / This is Our Moment
Lyrics adapted by Bob Silberg
from a speech by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
and the words of Barack Obama
Music by Barbara Klaskin Silberg

vocal    instrumental

I have a dream

...that one day this nation will rise up
and live out the true meaning of its creed:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident:
that all men are created equal."

I have a dream

...that one day the sons of former slaves
and the sons of former slave owners
will be able to sit down together
at the table of brotherhood.

(Sung) I have a dream

...that children will one day
live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin
but by the content of their character.

I have a dream today.
This will be the day when all of God's children
will be able to sing with new meaning,
"from every mountainside, let freedom ring." 

And when this happens,
when we allow freedom to ring
from every village
and every hamlet,
from every state
and every city,
we will speed up that day
when all of God's children
will join hands and sing
"Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!" 

This is our moment.
This is our time.
Choosing hope over fear, at last we can say:
I have a dream
I have a dream
A dream coming true today.
