52 Promises: Week 2

For my New Year’s resolution, I created 52 goals. Each goal is written on a promise card. Every Sunday I select one at random and I have one week to fulfill the goal. This week I selected “I will write a song.” Subscribe to my channel and see if I stay true to my word!Are you a musician? If you write music to the song and perform it, I will feature it on https://becauseisaidiwould.org and send you a free because I said I would shirt! Submit your video in the comments below and email it to becauseisaidiwoul@gmail.com. The chorus comes from MLK’s last speech, The Promise Land: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4WZbxYGy3AsHere are the lyrics to my song!“It rolls down like water, majestic heights in a promised land that he’s seen.This is his dream.He isn’t afraid now,  getting death threats by mail and a bomb on his porch.He carries the torch. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land! Consider the question, have you the strength and the will that will do what is right?This was his life.Top of the mountain, when do you quit and you stop and you say that you tried?He’d rather die. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land! We live in his shadow, never forget where we came from, the work and the sweat that has dried.He was the guide.Remember the day now, live out his dream and honor the debt that he paid,Born on this day. And I’ve seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you. But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promise land!”
