Today by Beah Richards!


Today is ours
Let’s live it

Love is strong
Let’s give it

A song can help
Let’s sing it

Peace is dear
Let’s bring it

The past is gone
Don’t rue it

Our work is here
Lets do it

Our world is wrong
Let’s right it

The battle hard
Let’s fight it

The road is rough
Let’s clear it

The future vast
Don’t fear it

Is faith asleep?
Let’s wake it

Today is ours
Let’s take it!

Written by legendary Beah Richards

Once recited by Ruby Dee at the Inspiration Event at Radio City Music Hall during the National Conference on Volunteering and Service.

And, now recited by Lynn Whitfield | Oprah’s Master Class
