Our heritage is a proud one,
we descend from Kings and Queens.
But we were ripped from our homeland,
treated like animals, not human beings;
As slaves we built this country,
known as the U.S. of A.
It's through our blood, our sweat and tears,
America's become what it is today;
Our struggle still continues,
but we'll reach that mountaintop.
Our ancestor's passed us the freedom torch,
and we dare not let it drop;
Freedom torch, freedom torch, may you shine forever bright,
basking all God's children int he glow of freedom's light.
