"The Advancing Proletaire" (karaoke)

"The Advancing Proletaire" (sheet music)


We are coming, all united,

Throbbing with unmeasured pow’r.

Through the darkness un-affrighted,

We have waited for this hour.

Now, we rise, before us sweeping

All the galling ties that bind,

And our fiery veins are leaping

With the blood of all mankind.

 

We are coming unforgiving

And the earth resounds our tread:

Bone and sinew of the living,

Spirit of the rebel dead.

You who sowed the winds of sorrow,

Now the whirlwind you must dare.

As you face upon the morrow

The Advancing Proletaire!

 

Years of labor, years of anguish,

Gallows grim and dungeon cell,

All your boasted pow’rs to vanquish

Have but taught us to rebel;

Now the mighty giant has risen

From the slumber of the years,

And for him your strongest prison

Has no terrors and no fears.

 

We are coming unforgiving

And the earth resounds our tread:

Bone and sinew of the living,

Spirit of the rebel dead.

You who sowed the winds of sorrow,

Now the whirlwind you must dare.

As you face upon the morrow

The Advancing Proletaire!
