LIBERTY

Liberty lives in the human mind,
Which is what a true man is.
To think and speak with freedom,
That’s what true Liberty is.
The tyrant Church seeks your soul,
To cause all men to think the same,
But to choose your thoughts, uncontrolled,
Is true Liberty to proclaim.
According to conscience think freely,
‘Tis for such Liberty that soldiers die,
No despot, no pope no conqueror,
Shall direct the free man’s eye.
For yet we are our father’s traitors,
If this true Liberty we deny.
