Martin Luther King Jr.: We Shall Overcome!

We shall overcome...

We'll Walk Hand-in-Hand...

We Shall Live in Peace...

Martin Luther King Jr.: I Have A Dream!

Let us not wallow in the valley of despair,
I say to you today, my friends.

And so even though we face
the difficulties of today and tomorrow,
I still have a dream.
It is a dream deeply rooted in the American dream.

I have a dream
that one day this nation
will rise up and live out
the true meaning of its creed:

We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal.


Confession of Peter: Tu Es Petrus

Tu es Petrus
et super hanc petram
aedificabo ecclesiam meam
et portae inferi
non praevalebunt adversum eam
et tibi dabo claves regni caelorum

You are Peter
and upon this rock
I will build my church
and the doors of hell
shall not prevail against it
and to you I will give the keys
of the kingdom of heaven

Confession of Peter: You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God

Jesus said to them,
"Who do you say that I am?"

Simon Peter replied,
"You are the Christ,
the Son of the Living God."

You are the Christ, You're the Messiah,
You are the Son of the living God,
Faithful and True, my eyes are on You
As we expect You to return like You promised.
