"The Profit-Takers" (karaoke)

"The Profit-Takers" (sheet music)


See the profit-takers

Grinding human grist.

Of hell's greed partakers

Ruling by the fist.

Naught they reck of manhood;

Naught they value life.

O'er the world broadcast they scatter

Seeds of hate and strife.

 

Socialism, holy,

Earth's redemption, thou;

Savior of the lowly,

Unto Thee, we bow.

 

No co-operation

Can this planet know;

Nor art's glad creation

Like a river flow

Till commercialism

Has been born again:

Learns that work is not for Profit

But to turn out men.

 

Socialism, holy,

Earth's redemption, thou;

Savior of the lowly,

Unto Thee, we bow.

 

Profit-takers vanish!

Comes the glad new day.

For that sight, we famish;

For it, work and pray.

God of joyous labor

Send the Commonwealth:

End of exploitation,

Beauty's heritage and health.

 

Socialism, holy,

Earth's redemption, thou;

Savior of the lowly,

Unto Thee, we bow.
