Dear Nitanju,
I just found this on the internet and I have been trying to find a video of Sweet Honey or someone singing this song!
So beautiful and so appropriate for today...MLK day. I wanted to post the video on a website in a forum celebrating MLK. We have 10,000 members.

Do you know where I can find a video?

Thank you for this piece.

It is truly beautiful and I look forward to finding more of your work.
Sincerely,
Travis

I may be young
But I have a responsibility
To be the best, that I can be

To care for you, like I care for me
To want for you what I want for me

As a member of the world community...

Member of the world community
Connected to God's humanity
(Don't want to be) a part of a world where people are not free
(I have to be) a member of the world community

World community
I have to be
One in the number of all humanity
No color, no class, no gender, is more
Important than the love that God has in store
For me, for you
But what we have to do
Is change how we recognize the truth
It's not coming from the media
It's coming from the hearts
Of people all around the world
Who need a fresh start
Peace, no war
No senseless death
Who want a way to celebrate God
In breath
Life
Less strife
Light
Hope
Futures bright
Change
Grow
Less wrong
More right
Pull together
It is worth the fight
Sing the alphabet
And make the rhythm tight
Add a little flavor
With a bit of spice
Change your life
Sing!

Chorus:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
That's how we sing our ABC's
And tell you what you need to know
About our world community

Verses:

A! All we need is a world community
B! Brothers and sisters; one humanity
C! Create a brand new society (with)
D! Dreams of children safe and free

G! Give your heart a chance to grow
H! Heal the Spirit and joy will flow
I! Imagine living in peace
J! Justice for all; racism must cease
K! Kindness between you and me
L! Learning respect is so easy
M! Mother Earth, without you, what would we do?

N! Nurturing resources for us to use
O! Open our eyes to see the truth
P! Prepare the future for our youth
Q! Quietly, (let's) bow our heads and pray
R! Reach in our souls to find another way
S! Strength and courage to stand as one...

T! Trust how great a people we can become
U! Unity created over time...

V! Victory begins within our minds
W! Wade in the water, it's troubled by God
X! Xtra-ordinary journeys we shall trod
Y! Young people, we will be
Z! Zeniths of the world community

Chorus:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
That's how we sing our ABC's
And tell you what you need to know
About our world community

Yeah!
