"Hail the Hero Workers" (karaoke)

"Hail the Hero Workers" (sheet music)

Hail the hero workers

Of the mighty past!

They whose labor builded

All the things that last:

Thoughts of wisest meaning,

Deeds of noblest right,

Patient toil in weakness,

Struggles in the night.

Hail, then, noble workers,

Builders of the past,

All whose lives have blest us

With the gains that last.


Hail ye, hero workers,

Who today do hear

Duty's myriad voices

Sounding high and clear;

Ye who quick responding

Haste ye to your task;

Be it grand or simple,

Ye forget to ask.

Hail ye, noble workers,

Builders of today,

Who life’s treasures gather

That shall last always.


Hail ye, hero workers,

Ye who yet shall come,

When to this world's calling

All our lips are dumb;

Ye shall build more nobly,

If our work be true

As we pass life's treasures

On from old to new.

Hail ye, then, all workers

Of all lands and time,

One brave band of heroes

With one task sublime.
