A Charm for Religious Liberty

A Charm for Religious Liberty

By Ian Corrigan

This is a voice of the people, the people of the United States of America.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

Let this be the voice of the Wise, for wisdom is my prayer.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

Let the wisdom of the founders bring freedom.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

Let the freedom in our spirits be the foundation of the law.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

Let our law proclaim that we have no ‘lords’.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

May our Ancestors witness our commitment to freedom and justice.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

May the Other Kins of North America know our commitment to their well-being.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

May the Gods and Goddesses of all peoples know welcome in our nation.

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

By Sky and by Grain, by Mountain and by Plain, by Liberty and by Justice,

In the United States, let no god be master, and let all be free.

From sea to sea, so be it!
