Memories of this day in 1975
still live on our streets, huts and streams.
Our books, hearts and thoughts,
in Kenya's womb.
Convinced our freedoms
Our country we revive,
Refusing to die inside,
We hope against hope,
And stem the tide,
and with freedom garlands,
the national spirit we invite:
To take freedom.
To live freedom.
To worship freedom.
To eat freedom.
To breathe freedom.
To pray freedom.
To hold her in awe.
For the poor and for the rich,
To make freedom thrive.
