Declaration of Independence

(music: Kovacev/Radan - lyrics: excerpts from the US Declaration of Independence, traditional Western African music from Ghana, and traditional African American gospel from Jefferson County Alabama titled “Job”).

Listen and share our single "Declaration of Independence":

 


We hold these truths to be self-evident,
that all men are created equal,
that they are endowed by their Creator
with certain unalienable rights.
That to secure these rights,
governments are instituted among men
We hold these truths to be self-evident.
It is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it,
And to institute new government,

God giveth,
The Declaration of Independence
God taketh,
I said blessed,
Be the name,
Of the Lord
Job, why

The representatives of the United States of America
appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world
do, in the name, and by the authority of the good people
solemnly publish and declare.

God giveth,
The Declaration of Independence
God taketh, (well now)
I said blessed, (be)
Be the name, be the name
Of the Lord
Job why, of the lord
And he said;

God giveth,
And he giveth
God taketh, (well now)
I said blessed, (be)
be the name, let it be the name
of the Lord, Job why

God giveth,
Something to tell you
God taketh,
It’s in his power to taketh,
I said blessed, (be)
Be the name, be the name
Of the Lord, of the lord
Job why, job why
…we want lie…
