Happy Independence Day Liberia

Today we celebrate peace Remembering how it was won The many hearts that grieve For freedom is all we want Salute the national flag Liberians Sing aloud the Lonestar forever Sing aloud the national anthem We are the custodians of Liberia's heritage Ours is the home of kindness The land where ships anchor with our forefathers Once torn apart by ignorance and a tomfoolery war With hope we strive to rebuild it together Surviving unrelenting strife Rainfall of misery on our lives Alas, ignorance too come with a price It surmounted patriotism and morality 170 with a little to show Only our indelible past chanted by the waves of the Pacific Pausing our heartbeat for the innocents we lost A sad day when anarchism won for sure All hail Liberia hail This glorious land of liberty Together we sing with plangency Regardless the impediment we'll prevail
