"I Dream a World"
1
I dream a world where man No other man will scorn, Where love will bless the earth And peace its paths adorn
I dream a world where all Will know sweet freedom's way, Where greed no longer saps the soul Nor avarice blights our day.
A world I dream where black or white, Whatever race you be, Will share the bounties of the earth And every man is free, Where wretchedness will hang its head And joy, like a pearl, Attends the needs of all mankind- Of such I dream, my world!
