One day when the glory comes It will be ours, it will be ours O-oh, one day when the war is won

We will be sure, we will be sure O-oh, glory (Glory, glory) O-oh (Glory, glory) Hands to the Heavens, no man, no weapon Formed against, yes glory is destined Every day women and men become legends Sins that go against our skin become blessings The movement is a rhythm to us Freedom is like religion to us Justice is juxtapositionin′ us Justice for all just ain't specific enough One son died, his spirit is revisitin′ us Truant livin', livin' in us, resistance is us That′s why Rosa sat on the bus That′s why we walk through Ferguson with our hands up When it go down we woman and man up They say, "Stay down", and we stand up Shots, we on the ground, the camera panned up King pointed to the mountain top and we ran up One day when the glory comes It will be ours, it will be ours O-oh, one day when the war is won We will be sure, we will be sure O-oh, glory (Glory, glory) O-oh (Glory, glory) Now the war is not over, victory isn't won But we′ll fight on to the finish, and when it's all done We′ll cry glory (Glory), oh glory (Glory) O-oh (Glory, glory) We'll cry glory, oh glory (Glory, glory) O-oh (Glory, glory) Selma′s now for every man, woman and child Even Jesus got his crown in front of a crowd They marched with the torch, we gon' run with it now Never look back, we done gone hundreds of miles From dark roads, he rose, to become a hero Facin' the league of justice, his power was the people Enemy is lethal, a king became regal Saw the face of Jim Crow under a bald eagle The biggest weapon is to stay peaceful We sing, our music is the cuts that we bleed through Somewhere in the dream, we had an epiphany Now we right the wrongs in history No one can win the war individually It takes the wisdom of the elders and young people′s energy Welcome to the story we call victory The comin′ of the Lord, my eyes have seen the glory One day when the glory comes It will be ours, it will be ours O-oh, one day when the war is won We will be sure, we will be sure O-oh, glory (Glory, glory) O-oh (Glory, glory) O-oh, glory (Glory, glory) Hey! (Glory, glory) When the war is won, when it's all said and done We′ll cry glory (Glory, glory) O-oh (Glory, glory)
