Rise Up: M.L.K. Day
Song for Teaching about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Jack Hartmann

     
This song is available on Jack Hartmann's  Rhythms and Rhymes for Special Times.

 

Stand in a circle, clap your hands,
stand in a circle of peace
People all together celebrate
Martin Luther King

Sway in a circle, holding hands,
sway in a circle of peace
People all together celebrate
Martin Luther King

Chorus:
He believed we would rise up,
live all together in peace
He believed we would rise up,
people everywhere would be free

Reach high in a circle, to the sky,
reach high in a circle of peace
People all together celebrate
Martin Luther King

Repeat Chorus

He believed in love, so clap your hands
He believed in brotherhood, so swing and sway
He believed in hope, so reach up high
He believed in people, so hold a hand

He believed we would rise up, Martin Luther King
