"The Black National …"


"The Black National …"

Song title: Lift ev'ry voice and sing

Also known as: The Black National Anthem


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.
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.
Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chast'ning rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet,
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Here now we stand at last.
God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might,
Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
everyday we lit
Shadowed beneath thy hand,
May we forever stand,
True to our God,
True to our native land.

Pomerol, f#cking awesome!  The food was delicious. John was our server, great. Rocky made us want to spend the whole night at the bar. The chef brought his "A" game. Wished we lived closer, would live there.

Everyone is talking about Kanye West. I'm thinking about Childish Gambino.  What are you pondering?
"I could only have seen it there, on the waxed hardwood floor of my elementary-school auditorium, because I was young then, barely 7 years old, and cable had not yet come to the city, and if it had, my father would not have believed in it. Yes, it had to have happened like this, like folk wisdom, because when I think of that era..."  Link to the full article https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2018/05/im-not-black-im-kanye/559763/?

"SAP is now finally a leader in marketing.

"SAP is now finally a leader in marketing. Who would have thought that?" SAP Hybris CTO, Moritz Zimmerman, in his keynote to the 2017 SAP Hybris Global Summit had just highlighted the company´s appearance as a leader in the latest Gartner magic quadrant for multi-channel marketing.
And indeed, SAP Hybris, the commerce arm of the German software giant, is finally talking about being — among other things — a "marketing cloud." It´s been a long time coming. Tracking the progress of Hybris over the last fewyears, I´d perceived an avoidance of discussing the whole marketing cloud space — an emphasis, instead, on front office microservices.
