"Men of the Soil" (karaoke)

"Men of the Soil" (sheet music)

Men of the soil!

We have labored unending;

We have fed the world

Upon the grain that we have grown.

Now, with the star

Of the new day ascending,

Giants of the earth,

At last, we rise to claim our own.

Justice throughout the land;

Happiness as God has planned.

Who is there denies our right

To reap where we have sown?


Men of the soil!

Now, the torch we have lighted

Kindles fires in ev’ry land

Where rings the harvest song!

Shoulder to shoulder

In courage united,

From ev’ry race we come

To join the tillers’ mighty throng.

Earth ne’er shall eat again

Bread gained through blood of men.

We have sworn to right

Forever more the ancient wrong.


Men of the soil!

We are coming in judgment

To tell the world ‘til justice rules

There is no liberty.

We, in our strength,

Are a-rising like prophets,

Marching on to show the world

The dawn that is to be.

There’s a lightning in the sky;

There’s a thunder shouting high.

We will never stop until

The sons of men are free.
