about

In order to speak more powerfully and directly to the issues of our
times, our song For Liberty updates Irving Berlin's anthem set to the Emma Lazarus poem immortalized on America's Statue of Liberty.

lyrics

For Liberty -- a love song to America
By Emma Lazarus, Irving Berlin, Samuel Francis Smith, Virgil Night and Dale Jarrett

Prelude: Recitation: Give me your tired, your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

1. (Solo) Isn't this what made our nation great
Safe harbor for those found in need
A port of call for dreamers and believers
Where ones oppressed could finally live free?

2. (Solo) Isn't this what made our country strong
The right to speak our truths unreigned
Where liberty was treasured, and compassion,
And democracy our ideals?

Refrain: Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

3 (Solo) Isn't this what made us family
A visionary tapestry
Of every tongue and tribe raised up as one,
A legacy of hope and unity?

[Refrain]

Soloist: My country, 'tis of thee ...

[Refrain]

Coda: Soloist: From every mountainside
Everyone: Let freedom ring!
