Freedom of Speech

two thousand years ago men lost their lives
when they stood up for justice and criticized
the emperor Nero and all of his lies
freedom was won by the martyrs who died

Chorus

freedom, freedom of speech
freedom, freedom to preach
we'll stand for justice and what I believe
we sing about freedom, freedom of speech

modern justice is falling apart
maybe we should ask the question "where did justice start?"
God raised his hands and He opened his heart
He gave us his life and conquered the darkness

freedom, freedom of speech
freedom, freedom to teach
we'll teach our children what I believe
we sing about freedom, freedom of speech

ancient empires came tumbling down
they turned away from God and fell to the ground
is that the future for the culture of "choice"
we say "NO!!!" we sing with one voice

freedom, how sweet it is
freedom, freedom to live
and speak the truth like our Saviour did
we sing about freedom, freedom in Him
