Listen to our declaration, listen to our testament
We’ve been given a revelation, we are sure of where we stand
So let the banner be unfurled, we’ve found the light of hope in a dying world

Hear the myth of modern man, you’re the god of your own land
They call you weak a spineless fool, say you’ve given up your right to rule
But I have been to the land of me and I know I was never free
Freedom came when I gave it all away

Call it Independence Day, call it Independence Day
Let the rockets blaze across the sky
Raise the flag of faith up high
Let the doubters call it what they may
It’s Independence Day

The world can crown another hundred kings but I believe in a better dream
They may call it slavery but the biggest chain I knew was me
So let the idols tumble down
The walls of lies crumble to the ground
I know where salvation can be found
Let the idols tumble down

Call it Independence Day, call it Independence Day
Let the rockets blaze across the sky
Raise the flag of faith up high
Let the doubters call it what they may
It’s Independence Day

So join in the celebration
It’s the birth of a holy nation
As people of light we are proud to say….

Call it Independence Day, call it Independence Day
Let the doubters call it what they may, ‘cuz we call it Independence Day
It’s Independence Day
