DPF / Johnson

For gleam and gloom and Thanksgiving Eve, from poetryfoundation.org.

from Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing / by James Weldon Johnson (1871–1938)

Lift ev’ry voice and sing,
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the list’ning skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
