I Have A Dream - SATB or SA, dedicated to Martin Luther King, Medium difficulty. Recommended for good high school or adult level choruses.

"I Have a Dream that someday, I Have a Dream that someday
We'll forswear the ways of war and come to know and love and trust each other.
I Have a Dream that someday, I have a dream that someday
All the children of the earth will hold their hands as sister.....as brother.


We will someday come to know that all people do belong to the family of man.
We will ultimately grow to the spiritual height that has ever been the plan..."
