"Futurity" (karaoke)

"Futurity" (sheet music)


Futurity now swiftly comes.

There, bathed in light of setting suns,

A land of joy is drawing nigh,

Where meet and blend the Earth and Sky.

 

O, Freedom Land! Fair Freedom Land!

As on the vision mount I stand,

I look away across the years;

The sight doth banish all my fears:

A new regenerated earth,

Glad brotherhood of human worth!

 

The winds, they seem to whisper me

A tale of freed humanity.

The Martyrs stand, a bright-robed throng,

And echo back our rising song.

 

O, Freedom Land! Fair Freedom Land!

As on the vision mount I stand,

I look away across the years;

The sight doth banish all my fears:

A new regenerated earth,

Glad brotherhood of human worth!

 

That country of our heart's desire

Is only reached through battle fire.

The coward there shall never dwell

Nor liberty's glad anthem swell.

 

O, Freedom Land! Fair Freedom Land!

As on the vision mount I stand,

I look away across the years;

The sight doth banish all my fears:

A new regenerated earth,

Glad brotherhood of human worth!

 

O, comrades, come and walk with me.

Here naught but Fellowship have we.

In loyalty, hand clasps with hand

For this is freedom's borderland.

 

O, Freedom Land! Fair Freedom Land!

As on the vision mount I stand,

I look away across the years;

The sight doth banish all my fears:

A new regenerated earth,

Glad brotherhood of human worth!
