"He Stained Our Banner Red" (karaoke)

"He Stained Our Banner Red" (sheet music)

There is a river, red with blood,

Shed from the Martyrs' veins;

No tyrannies withstand that flood;

It flows to all earth's plains.

The Carpenter of Galilee,

That river's Fountainhead;

He fought, He died for liberty;

He stained our banner red.


The toilers' freedom is a prize

Will nevermore be won

Till self-respect mounts to the skies

And swells from every tongue.

When Socialism comes at last,

The Commonwealth we'll see;

Earth's miseries will then be past,

From exploitation free.
