From the recording Let Freedom Ring (Let Freedom Stand)
My Country, ‘Tis Of Thee (1st verse)
My country 'tis of thee
Sweet Land of Liberty
Of thee I sing
Land where my fathers died
Land of the pilgrims' pride
From every mountain side
Let freedom ring!
Standing alone at the break of daylight gazing o’er the sea
Marvel at all the peace and grandeur, Endless majesty!
Time is not spent, nor the earth not ended, Hope’s still abounding if we befriend it
On the horizon - triumphant victory!
Let freedom stand across the land
Don’t sacrifice yours just so some can hand you doom and gloom and erring ways
Depriving your life of better days
Let freedom stand, let freedom ring, Bring truth and light to every living thing
Then you’re free to live life through, Just let me live my life too.
Life’s for transcending and love’s for sending, Choice in every course
Sacrifice rendering fruits ever-lending
But question those who force
Reason persuades us in all direction, Corruption is begging elimination
Trust every dream to that Grand Eternal Source.
