Lyrics: T. Phillips Thompson.
Tune: “Hold the Fort.”


Fellow toilers, pass the watchword!
Would you know your powers?
Spread the light, and we will conquer,
Then the world is ours.

Spread the light! the world is waiting
For the cheering ray.
Fraught with promise of the glories
Of the coming day.

In the conflict of the ages,
In this thrilling time,
Knowledge is the road to freedom,
Ignorance is crime.

Spread the light! the world is waiting
For the cheering ray.
Fraught with promise of the glories
Of the coming day.

Wolves and vampires in the darkness
Prey on flesh and blood,
From the radiance of the sunlight
Flee the hellish brood.

Spread the light! the world is waiting
For the cheering ray.
Fraught with promise of the glories
Of the coming day.

Light alone can save the nations,
Long the spoilers’ prey,
Bound and blinded in their prison
Waiting for the day.

Spread the light! the world is waiting
For the cheering ray.
Fraught with promise of the glories
Of the coming day.

Men who know their rights as freemen
Ne’er to tyrants cower,
Slaves will rise and burst their fetters
When they feel their power.

Spread the light! the world is waiting
For the cheering ray.
Fraught with promise of the glories
Of the coming day.
