"The Fatherhood of God" (karaoke)

"The Fatherhood of God" (sheet music)


Now sound ye forth with trumpet tone;

Let all the nations fear;

Speak to the world the thrilling words

That tyrants quail to hear;

And write them bold on Freedom's flag;

And wave it in the van;

'Tis the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man.

'Tis the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man.

 

Upon the sunny mountain brow,

Among the busy throng,

Proclaim the day for which our hearts

Have prayed and waited long;

The grandest words that men have heard

Since e'er the world began

Are the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man,

Are the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man.

Too long the night of ignorance

Has brooded o'er the mind;

 

Too long the love of wealth and pow'r,

And not the love of kind;

Now let the blessed truth be flashed

To earth's remotest span

Of the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man,

Of the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man.

 

Oh, ye who trample on the hearts

And chain the minds of men,

The sword is shivered in your grasp:

Broke by the mighty pen.

And right shall yet prevail, in spite

Of king or priestly ban,

By the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man,

By the Fatherhood of God

And the Brotherhood of Man.
