Lift Every Voice and Sing, written by Episcopalian James Weldon Johnson, with music by his brother, Rosamond Johnson, is known as the African American National Anthem. It was written in 1900 for the celebration of President Lincoln’s birthday.
We sing it frequently at St. Luke’s. It is found in both the Episcopal Hymnal 1982 and Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing, the African American Hymnal of the Episcopal Church.
Father Shawn sings this often for many occasions but since he is not allowed to sing - he cannot sing it Sunday. Attached is a YouTube video from Morehouse College Glee Club.

LET US PRAY:
For Social Justice:
Grant, O God, that your holy and life-giving Spirit may so move every human heart, that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Thanksgiving for Diversity:
O God, who created all peoples in your image, we thank you for the wonderful diversity of races and cultures in this world. Enrich our lives by ever-widening circles of fellowship, and show us your presence in those who differ from us, until our knowledge of your love is made perfect in our love for all your children; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
