Original text by JN Holland.

Ah! Sweet victory!
Shine like the sun;
The bright and glorious champion!
Lift the torch of vict'ry's fiery flame
And sing again.
O sweet, sweet victory!
The battle done,
The right and virtuous honor won
So place the wreath upon the victor's brow
And shout aloud,
'Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah!'
Hist'ry's fame will add your name
For now and ever!
Praise to those who overcome,
Triumph of one's own
Adversities and demons won,
No nobler aim,
No harder vanquished foe.
And let Peace reign throughout the Land,
Love will prevail,
Much surer than the tyrant's Hand.
The stars attained,
Through perseverance gained.
The stars attained,
Our victory gained!
'Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah!
Hist'ry's fame can add our names,
For now and ever.
'Hoorah! Hoorah! Hoorah!
So raise your hands and celebrate
This glorious feat, this glorious date.
All glow within the moment's bliss,
The beauty of sweet Vict'ry's kiss!
Long live this day!
Sweet Victory! Ah!

James Nathaniel Holland is an American classical music composer of operas, symphonies, ballets, songs, and other musical concertworks that incorporate a unique, eclectic, blend of romantic, classical, world and jazz styles.
Born and raised in Indiana, he studied music at DePauw University, Vienna Austria, Interlochen National Music Camp and Indiana University (Bloomington, IN). At these schools many of his early pieces were premiered and performed, with one work being selected for main-stage production in the season.
Moving to Los Angeles and then settling in New York, he performed professionally sometimes as a singer, sometimes as a pianist, sometimes as choral conductor. He composed incidental music for the stage. In 2002 he founded a composers collective where they showcased their work. He was one of the first composers to participate in the American Music Center’s initial on-line library. The New Jersey Concert Opera and the Gay Men’s Chorus of New Jersey also featured his comic operas and art songs.

From 2005 he moved to Costa Rica where he organized concerts with visiting guest artists to present his chamber music to the public. Presently he lives in a castle in the central mountains of Costa Rica.
