John Legend – Glory Lyrics

[Chorus – John Legend:]
One day when the glory comes
It will be ours, it will be ours
One day when the war is won
We will be sure, we will be sure
Oh glory1

[Common:]
Hands to the Heavens, no man, no weapon
Formed against, yes glory is destined2
Every day women and men become legends3
Sins that go against our skin become blessings4
The movement is a rhythm to us5
Freedom is like religion to us6
Justice is juxtapositionin’ us7
Justice for all just ain’t specific enough8
One son died, his spirit is revisitin’ us9
Truant livin’ livin’ in us, resistance is us10
That’s why Rosa11 sat on the bus
That’s why we walk through Ferguson with our hands up12
When it go down we woman and man up
They say, “Stay down”, and we stand up13
Shots, we on the ground, the camera panned up
King pointed to the mountain top and we ran up14

[Chorus]

[John Legend:]
Now the war is not over, victory isn’t won
And we’ll fight on to the finish, then when it’s all done
We’ll cry glory, oh glory
We’ll cry glory, oh glory15

[Common:]
Selma is now for every man, woman and child16
Even Jesus got his crown in front of a crowd
They marched with the torch, we gon’ run with it now17
Never look back, we done gone hundreds of miles
From dark roads he rose, to become a hero18
Facin’ the league of justice, his power was the people
Enemy is lethal, a king became regal19
Saw the face of Jim Crow under a bald eagle20
The biggest weapon is to stay peaceful21
We sing, our music is the cuts that we bleed through22
Somewhere in the dream we had an epiphany23
Now we right the wrongs in history24
No one can win the war individually25
It takes the wisdom of the elders and young people’s energy
Welcome to the story we call victory26
Comin’ of the Lord, my eyes have seen the glory

[Chorus]

[John Legend:]
When the war is done, when it’s all said and done
We’ll cry glory, oh glory27
