Lyrics: John Leslie.
Tune: “God Save Ireland.”


With the symbol and the sign,
Rank on rank, and line on line,
True Pioneers of Liberty, we come.
Light for all the blind we bear,
Thunder so the deaf may hear,
And true Pentecostal fires for the dumb.

Forward to Liberty advancing,
Forward to Freedom from the thrall,
Come with willing heart and hand,
All who bear a common brand,
With the blood red flag of Freedom over all.

Upward yet and onwards still
To the city on the hill,
No rest we know till Labor has its own,
Till the death knell we have tolled,
Of the clinging curse of gold,
And the might of man o’er man is overthrown.

Forward to Liberty advancing,
Forward to Freedom from the thrall,
Come with willing heart and hand,
All who bear a common brand,
With the blood red flag of Freedom over all.
