Re: UFP Anthem

Hey, folks, FWIW, I've finally taken the liberty of writing some lyrics myself, for the first verse. I tried to emphasize pacing as well as meter. And of course, the intent is to stir patriotism within the hearts of the citizens of the nation, as any anthem should:

Hear, all ye peoples, far and wide,
Rise with integrity, honor, and pride,
Stand for this Empire of Liberty,
This One and United Federation!

BTW, here's a YouTube of the full anthem with the annoying applause edited out....
