Benediction for Racial Reconciliation

Benediction
Based on hymn, “We Shall Overcome” and the words of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King
By Terri Stewart

When we see evil and injustice
We shall overcome
When we experience bigotry and pain
The Lord will see us through
When we act with compassion and love
We’re on to victory
When we join our hearts to fight oppression
We’ll walk hand in hand
When we are not afraid
The truth shall make us free.
Thank God almighty, we will be free at last.
Now, go forth to love and serve the world so that all people will be free.
Amen.
