It was said by a great man, give me liberty or give me death
Once embracing freedom, true liberty to grasp,
And championed freedom till the last breath
Those who clarioned freedom until death's gasp.
Where are they now having even their bones turned to dust?
Has the soaring eagle spirit of freedom been caged?
It is we who must be its guardian and fulfill the trust
still we hear echoes of freedom's past age.
It was God Almighty who ennobled the soul
Filled the heart with wisdom, and the intellect with light
Allowed virtue to volition unfold
Allowed man to know and embrace the right.
So let us, we who uphold the waving banners of truth,
Dispel the falsehood which grounds tyranny
With our voices, action, and burden-bearing
Embrace true freedom and liberty
