I...am a proud people!
I am the history!
Of a glorious and proud people
A legacy of kindred souls
Spanning the entire history of man!
I was here at the creation humanity...
I was here when mankind first confirmed
the will to survive as family.
I am the birthplace and cradle
of great civilizations
and cultural heritage’s unsurpassed
by any nation!
I am the learned scholars to whom conquerors
I ruled from a mighty throne as the Nile
gave fertile valleys life.
I am the ancestors whose dignity and pride
Survived the institution of slavery
and the march toward civil rights.
My contributions to many nations
have laid their foundations for greatness!
My blood has stained the ground...
In the name of liberty and freedom!
Not a note had been sung...
That I have not contemplated!
Not a struggle for freedom has been waged...
That I did not inspire!
For I am the history!
Of a glorious and mighty people!
Whose birth heritage and culture
have spanned all time itself...
A great legacy of humanity and freedom
From the birth of man...
Throughout all history itself!
For I am a proud people!
A glorious and mighty people!
