I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “We hold these truths to be self-evident; that all men are created equal.”
We are not slaves; we’re children of God; His truth sets us free; His Word is law. Keep hope alive, hold fast to your faith, for if the Son sets us free we’re free indeed.
REFRAIN: Let freedom ring! Free at last! We’re free at last!
When children of slaves join slave owners kin, ’round brotherhood’s table our peace we win.
Only then, will our nation be great, For if the Son sets you free you’re free indeed.
REFRAIN: Let freedom ring! We’re free at last! Thank God Almighty, we’re free at last!
We will hew from the mountain of despair a stone of hope.
We’ll transform the jangled discords of our land into a symphony of brotherhood.
Every valley shall be exalted and every hill and mountain made low;
The rough places plain, the crooked places straight,
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
And all flesh shall see it together.
Lift up your voice and sing: “From every mountainside...”
REFRAIN: Let freedom ring! Lift up your voice and sing: Free at last! We’re free at last! Let freedom ring! Let justice roll! Free at last, We’re free at last!
Let justice roll on like water from a mighty river
And righteousness flow on like a never failing stream of water.
REFRAIN: Let freedom ring!
From the hills of New Hampshire! From New York’s mighty mountains!
From the Alleghenies! From the snowcapped Rockies! From California’s slopes!
From Georgia’s Stone Mountain! From Tennessee’s Lookout Mountain!
From every Mississippi hill! And every Mississippi molehill!
REFRAIN: Let freedom ring! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we’re free at last!
