Ella’s Song Composed by Bernice Johnson Reagon, copyright: Songtalk Publishing Co.
Refrain: We who believe in freedom cannot rest We who believe in freedom cannot rest until it comes.
Verses: Until the killing of Black men, Black mothers’ sons Is as important as the killing of White men, White mothers’ sons
Verses: And that which touches we most is that I had a chance to work with people Passing on to others that which was passed on to me
Verses: To me young people come first, they have the courage where we fail And if I can shed some light as they carry us through the gale
Verses: The older I get, the better I know that the secret of my going on Is when the reins are in the hand of the young who dare to run against the storm Not needing to clutch for power, not needing the light just to shine on me, I need to be just one in the number as we stand against tyranny
Verses: Struggling I don’t mean a whole lot I come to realize That teaching others to stand up and fight is the only way my struggle survive I’m a woman who speaks in a voice and I must be heard At time I can be quite difficult, I’ll bow to no man’s word
