- Freedom medley: Freedom chant ; Oh freedom ; This little light of mine
This little light of mine
If you miss me from the back of the bus
Lord, hold my hand while I run this race
Get on board, children
Freedom now chant
Ain' scared of nobody
Leaning on the everlasting arms
Sermon / Rev. Lawrence Campbell
We are soldiers in the army
Go tell it on the mountain
Wade in the water
Come bah yah
Walk with me, Lord
Jesus on the mainline, tell him what you want
Don't you think it's about time that we all be free
We're marching on to freedom land
We shall overcome
We'll never turn back
We shall not be moved
Get your rights, Jack
Which side are you on
Woke up this morning with my mind on freedom
Been in the storm so long
The A & P song
Oh Pritchett, oh Kelly
I told Jesus
99 1/2 won't do
I'm on my way
City called heaven
In the Mississippi River
Ain' gonna let nobody turn me 'round
Will the circle be unbroken
Ballad of Medgar Evers
Uncle Tom's prayer
We shall overcome.
