Marcus Garvey - Music In My Soul
August 23, 1927
There's music in my soul today,

A joy of heart not there before:

This state of conscience I relay

To rich and proud and meek and poor.

There's music in my happy Soul:

From Heaven's realm doth truly flow

This music in my happy Soul,

My conscience tells me rightly so.

My song of joy I sing to you:

Let peace and love forever be

Among ye men of every hue,

Of every land and charted sea.

I crave no other fortune great,

But joy to live in peace with God;

My hopes are fixed on His Estate,

In faith so true as prophets had.

This music in my soul today

I spread in truth with love unfurled;

On waves of cheer it goes, I pray,

To reach around the belted world.
