    Hello starspangledmusic,
    Could you guys include the lyrics of “Freedom Triumphant” in your Youtube upload of same? There appears to be many versions of “Freedom Triumphant” floating around the Internet, but none of them are the one sung. The lyrics booklet doesn’t have it either. Thank you!

    • Hi Ryan! We’ll transcribe the lyrics to Freedom Triumphant for you. The full sheet music edition is in our Star Spangled Songbook, if you’re interested in a performable copy.
