詹姆士‧魏爾頓‧強森 (James Weldon Johnson) 出生於1871617 

唱一首充滿信仰的歌,那是黑暗的過去教我們的事,

唱一首充滿希望的歌,那是現在帶給我們的;

讓我們面對升起的朝陽,新的一天因此展開,

讓我們繼續前進,直到贏得勝利。

這是詹姆士‧魏爾頓‧強森寫的「每個人都要開口大聲唱」 (Life Evry Voice and Sing) 這首歌的一部分歌詞。這首歌是為了要紀念亞伯拉罕‧林肯的生日而寫的。強森於1871617日出生在佛羅里達的傑克森威爾 (Jacksonville) 。他是一個詩人、外交官、音樂創作家,同時也是非裔美人文化的編撰者。在他的一生中,強森面對許多新的一天,同時也用許多不同的方式來演唱這首歌曲。
 

Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,

Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us;

Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,
Let us march on till victory is won.


This is part of the song, "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing." Its lyrics were written by James Weldon Johnson to commemorate Abraham Lincoln's birthday. Johnson was born on June 17, 1871, in Jacksonville, Florida. He was a poet, diplomat, songwriter, and anthologist (compiler) of African American culture. During his lifetime, Johnson faced many a new day and sang his song in many different ways.
