There is one ideal, there is only one,
One concept thatís worth fighting, dying for.
One noble light that far outshines the sun,
Turns night to day, inspires wings to soar.
But in order for a countryís torch to shine
With the unobstructed light of liberty
It must first catch fire in souls like yours and mine,
And there be nurtured individually.
And are we willing to accept the blame
When the light goes out, or work to keep it lit?
We look for help to fan the flickering flame;
We ask the wise to tell the worth of it.
In every generation there are souls
In whom the torch of liberty burns bright;
They fights the oppressors who exact the tolls
That kill each tiny spark of freedomís light.
