Martin Luther King jr. and Jesus Christ

Sharon Brown 1974 (Brooklyn)

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day and every day
Let us remember that he was led by the Way.

Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
He is the inspiration for Martin Luther King Jr's life.
 
Martin Luther King Jr. marched and fought for peace.
But Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace.

For what he believed in, Martin Luther King Jr. gave his life.
for who he had created, Jesus Christ laid down and picked up his life.

Martin Luther King Jr. died but he will rise in the resurrection.
Jesus Christ died and rose because he is the Resurrection.

Martin Luther King Jr. lived an extraordinary life.
for he patterned it after the life of Jesus Christ.
