"Onward, Friends of Freedom" (karaoke)

"Onward, Friends of Freedom" (sheet music)


Toilers of the nations,

Thinkers of the time,

Sound the note of battle

Loud through every clime;

March ye 'gainst the tyrants,

Heedless of the steel;

Be a band of brothers;

Speed the common Weal!

 

Onward, friends of freedom;

Onward for the strife;

Each for all we struggle:

One in death and life.

 

Seamstress in the hovel,

Women of the mill,

Low indeed ye grovel;

Tame ye are and still.

Come like the Valkyries,

Beauteous in your might;

Sing ye songs of valor;

Nerve us for the fight!

 

Onward, friends of freedom;

Onward for the strife;

Each for all we struggle:

One in death and life.

 

Toil we now no longer

For another's gain

While our wives and children

Pine in want and pain;

Grieve we now no longer

At another's good;

Let us all be brothers;

Let us all have food!

 

Onward, friends of freedom;

Onward for the strife;

Each for all we struggle:

One in death and life.
