Well when moses was a baby, he was saved by the river nile and
80 years later god came to him and said "lead my people out of exile"
From the mountaintops to the promised land his prayers would always be
. . . "set all god's children free. . ."
And when lincoln came to illinois,
He communed at the mighty mississip.
And as he drank he realized the river jordan at his lips the river rose up
And it begged of him "when these waters reach the sea . .set all god's children free. . ."
When crazy horse was parted by the white man from this earth
His spirit rose, sioux legend goes, and it cried out at this birth
"won't you bury my heart beside the waters of the creek called wounded knee
. . .and set all god's children free. . ."
Listen, listen, to the waters of today,
It's a million tears make the river run. . .
Compassion makes it stay and
It will sing to you a thousand songs
Of thought and word and deed. . .
And set all god's children free. .
