The dawn of a new day is coming
And all across the land
African American people
Are united and forging ahead!
Oh mighty people born of struggle
and forged in the fires of freedom
The hour of our victory is here and now
and our forefatherís hope revealed!
Now is the time
to grasp and take hold
Of every opportunity,
to be all you can
and achieve every goal
To realize our ancestorís dreams!
Fear not the hard work or struggle
Doubt not your ability to succeed
Be determined to be victorious
and dare to be all you can be!
