"Our Fatherland" (karaoke)

"Our Fatherland" (sheet music)


One Cause we know o'er all the earth

Humankind, our Fatherland!

For mind and heart an ample girth,

Humankind, our Fatherland!

We laugh at narrow patriot's creed;

Our field is wide as human need.

O, let the glad new gospel speed!

Humankind, our Fatherland!

 

By warfare, love is crucified,

Humankind, our Fatherland!

Man's many flags the world divide,

Humankind, our Fatherland!

We speak to all, fraternity;

We tie mankind in unity.

Farewell to war's insanity!

Humankind, our Fatherland!

 

Dark ramparts frown across the world,

Humankind, our Fatherland!

Against themselves are brothers hurled,

Humankind, our Fatherland!

With our appearing, wars shall end;

To soldiers duped, a word we send.

Though tagged as foe, we come as friend!

Humankind, our Fatherland!

 

Ye workers all, arise, unite!

Humankind, our Fatherland!

In magnates' wars, let magnates fight!

Humankind, our Fatherland!

Our leader is the Prince of Peace.

To prisoners, we bring release.

Mammon shall fall, and battles cease!

Humankind, our Fatherland!
