Contemporary ANZAC Song

Cry for freedom

Dedicated to my Uncle, Colin Terrace,
who participated in the D-Day landing,
Normandy, World War 2

  1. Hear the cry for freedom
    Above the battle’s roar.
    A sound of sacrifice
    our world has heard before.
  2. Yet, there is hope of harmony,
    amidst our world of strife.
    Birthing a dream of unity
    as we hunger for life.
  3. Yes we will remember
    All who’ve gone before,
    who when the world was darken’d,
    dawn’d light upon our shore.
  4. The fallen stand among us:
    All voices blend as one.
    Calling us to freedom:
    To peace for which we long!
  5. Embrace the love of freedom!
    Believe and come along!
    Bring their torch of sacrifice!
    As family live – love’s song!
  6. Let us unite together,
    All voices rise in song.
    Praying for harmony:
    Our world in u-ni-son!
  7. Yes we will remember
    all who’ve gone before,
    who when the world was darken’d,
    dawn’d light upon our shore.
