"Hymn of the Toilers" (karaoke)

"Hymn of the Toilers" (sheet music)

O nation strong and great,

For thine own honor's sake

Hear thou our call;

We are thy children, too;

From year to year, we grew

Silent and patient through

Darkness and toil.


Out from the depths of crime,

We've tried in vain to climb

Where nothing led;

When life and justice asked,

Still further down were cast;

Even sobs were hushed at last,

And hope seemed dead.


But now, O nation strong,

To thee must truth belong.

Crown thou the right.

We are thy children, still,

Working with might and will,

Ne'er resting 'til we fill

The world with light.
