Song for Liberty

As sung by Nana Mouskouri, a fitting song for the upcoming July 4th holiday:

When you sing I'm singing with you Liberty.
When you cry I cry with you in sorrow.
When you suffer I'm praying for you Liberty,
For your struggles will bring us a new tomorrow.

Days of sad darkness and fear must one day crumble
For the force of your kindness and love make them tremble.
When you sing I'm singing with you Liberty.
In the void of your absence I keep searching for you.

Who are you dream, illusion or just reality?
Faith, ideal, desire, revolution?
I believe you're the symbol of our humanity
Lighting up the world for eternity.
I can see why men die to defend you,
Try to guard, to protect and attend you!

When you sing I'm singing with you Liberty
With your tears or your joys, I love you!
Let us sing and rejoice, make our own history,
Songs of hope with one voice guide us to victory

Liberty, Liberty!

(Verdi / P. Delanoƫ / C. Lemesle / J. Johns)

To hear the song, click on the radio station in the sidebar and listen in Windows Media Player. It will be available sometime tomorrow. I highly recommend the album "The Classical Nana" by Nana Mouskouri; she is one of the more approachable sopranos you'll ever hear. "Gloria Eterna," set to Handel's Suite No. 11 - Sarabande, is simply superb.
