The blood is risin', the blood is risin'
And freedom is its cry
A fire's breedin' , in the distance smoke chokes the sky
Soon we will stand free as lions, heads held high, high

The blood is risin', the blood is risin'
And freedom is its cry
The bell is sounding like a hammer pounding steel
No turning back when God's judgment is revealed, revealed.
