Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing

The poem was written in 1899 by James Weldon Johnson, and set to music in 1905 by his brother,  John Rosamond Johnson.  It has become know as “The Black National Anthem“.   Over the course of more than one hundred years, this song has inspired and uplifted millions of Black  Americans through times of trial and triumph.  Stanton’s  Sheet Music tries to always have a few copies on hand.  The low version is in  A flat major, the high version is in B flat major.  To find more music for special occasions, you may call Stanton’s at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at keyboard@stantons.com, or visit our website at http://www.stantons.com.  Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
