He gave her America today,
The little girl from Canada
Who dreamed of Yes We Can
And greatness, justice,
Actions from “it’s the right thing to do”
Not “it profits me.”
He spoke of history
He spoke of place
Of freedom
Sacrifice
Rights gained
And rights in jeopardy.
He spoke of diversity
The fitting together
Into a holy whole America,
One nation under Equality.
He morphed into We
We blacks
We gays
We women
We workers
We explorers
We…
Standing on a bridge in Alabama,
He gave her America today,
The little girl from Canada.
May all her dreams come true.

Where I am, that place is mine.
Where I will be, that place is mine.
Where I sit, that place is mine.
Where I stand, that place is mine.
Where I lie down, that place is mine.
Where I rise up, that place is mine.
Where I toil, that place is mine.
Where I rest, that place is mine.
Where I live, that place is mine.
Where I die, that place is mine.
