"Freedom's Sun" (karaoke)

"Freedom's Sun" (sheet music)


Yes, Freedom's song, by workers sung,

Rings loud and clear,

O'er ev'ry land, in ev'ry tongue,

Afar, anear;

Time passeth by,

Old systems die—

Oppression's course outrun,

But Earth, rejoiced, salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun;

O, rejoicing Earth salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun.

 

Yes, all men then their lives may live,

From grim want free,

And all the joys that life can give,

Their lot shall be;

And care shall fly,

And sea and sky

Acclaim the work well done,

When Earth, rejoiced, salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun;

O, rejoicing Earth salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun.

 

No longer now revolt need hide

In holes and caves,

While they who brave Oppression's pride,

But find their graves.

No tyrant's ban

Can now make man

The truths of knowledge shun;

All Earth, rejoiced, salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun;

O, rejoicing Earth salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun.

 

Our fathers saw the master's sword

His plunder glean,

But specious fraud and lying word

His thefts now screen;

Yet fraud shall fall,

And truth prevail,

And justice shall be done,

When Earth, rejoiced, salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun;

O, rejoicing Earth salutes the light

Of Freedom's sun.
