Freedom to think
Freedom to write 
For all of our freedoms 
We hold on tight

Freedom to choose 
Freedom to read 
For all of our freedoms
Our nation did bleed

For the galant men and women 
Who looked tyranny in the eye
Preserved this wondrous gift for us
Though many had to die

Although we have great benefits 
From what was miraculously won
There is a job unfinished 
There’s more that must be done

Struggling groups and struggling people 
Are still disinfranchised and down
Waiting to join the multitudes
Who wear the freedom crown

It’s often taken for granted
When we step out the door
The freedom we’re enjoying 
You cannot ask for more 

The freedom of our faith 
Whatever it may be 
Can be focused on those still hoping That soon they’ll all be free

It is not a fantasy for those still searching 
It’s the same dream our forefathers had
when  their quest had begun
We learn from our history
With the ultimate sacrifice -they won

As our lives take their chosen paths 
It’s so easy to forget 
There is still that work to be done
“It still ain’t over yet”
