I have a dream that one day Ethiopia will rise up and live out its symbolic status of 'The Beacon of Freedom'.
I have a dream that one day Ethiopia will treat its children with the same and equal treatment.
I have a dream that one day Ethiopia will live within the true meaning of ‘Un museo di Popoli - Museum of Peoples’. No privileged! No condemned!
I have a dream that my Ethiopia will hammer the evil of tyranny and dictatorship and instead, embrace Democracy.
I have a dream that one day the land of Ethiopia, will be hunger free and,
I also have a Dream that one day the spring of justice will quench Ethiopia, who is badly starving of it.
To fulfill my dreams,
Let freedom ring from the beautiful lowlands of Dalol to the Mighty Semen Mountains,
Let freedom ring from the mysterious peaks of Bale to the heavenly Forests of Gambella!
Let freedom ring from the giant Stale of Axum to the marvelous walls of Jegol.
Let freedom ring from the rift valleys of Ethiopia to the endless fields of Ogadane.
Let freedom ring from every house of 70 Million Ethiopian farmers to the skies of every urban dwellings.
Yeah, We Shall Overcome!
