"Marching to Freedom" (karaoke)

"Marching to Freedom" (sheet music)


Rouse, ye sons of labor all, and rally in your might!

In the eastern heavens, see the dawning of the light,

Fling our banner to the breeze, make ready for the fight,

Now we are marching to freedom!

 

Hurrah! Hurrah! we'll sound the jubilee!

Hurrah! Hurrah! the world shall yet be free!

Sweeping all before us like the billows of the sea,

As we go marching to freedom!

 

Long we sat disconsolate with hope of rescue fled,

Gloomy seemed our path before and dark the clouds o'er head,

Now the shadows vanish and our doubts and fears are dead,

Now we are marching to freedom!

 

Hurrah! Hurrah! we'll sound the jubilee!

Hurrah! Hurrah! the world shall yet be free!

Sweeping all before us like the billows of the sea,

As we go marching to freedom!

 

Frowning high before us, see the money despot's hold,

Built to shield the robbers with their piles of hoarded gold,

By the God above us! we'll no more be bought and sold!

Now we are marching to freedom!

 

Hurrah! Hurrah! we'll sound the jubilee!

Hurrah! Hurrah! the world shall yet be free!

Sweeping all before us like the billows of the sea,

As we go marching to freedom!

 

Sound aloud our battle-cry! press onward to the fray!

Right and might are on our side, no more will we delay,

Victory must crown the fight, the world is ours today,

Now we are marching to freedom!

 

Hurrah! Hurrah! we'll sound the jubilee!

Hurrah! Hurrah! the world shall yet be free!

Sweeping all before us like the billows of the sea,

As we go marching to freedom!
