A Song For A Sunday.

Make Them Hear You.


Vocals: From the musical ‘Ragtime’, featuring the gospel, R&B, and soul artist Marlon Solomon.

Lyrics: Lynn Ahrens / Stephen Charles.

Make Them Hear You.

Go out and tell our story,
Let it echo far and wide,
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you.
How Justice was our battle,
And how Justice was denied.
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you.
And say to those who blame us,
For the way we chose to fight,
That sometimes there are battles,
That are more than black or white,
And I could not put down my sword,
When Justice was my right.
Make them hear you.


Go out and tell our story

To your daughters and your sons,
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you.
And tell them, “In our struggle,
We were not the only ones”.
Make them hear you.
Make them hear you.


Your sword can be a sermon,
Or the power of the pen.
Teach every child to raise his voice,
And then my brothers, then,
Will justice be demanded by ten million riteous men.
Make them hear you,
When they hear you, I’ll be near you,
Again.

End
