"The Revolution" (karaoke)

"The Revolution" (sheet music)


Arise, then! Arise, then,

Ye men of the plow and the hammer,

Ye men of the helm and the lever,

And send forth to the four winds of the earth

(And send forth from the four winds of the earth)

Your new proclamation of freedom,

Of freedom, of freedom,

Which shall be the last (which shall be the last)

And shall abide forever more.

 

Through you, through your united strength,

Order shall become equity,

Law shall become liberty,

Duty shall become love,

And religion shall become truth.

Through you, through you

The man beast shall die,

And the man, the man be born.

And lo and behold, my brothers,

Peace shall reign forever!

And this shall be called the revolution.

 

Arise, then! Arise, then,

Ye men of the plow and the hammer,

Ye men of the helm and the lever,

And send forth to the four winds of the earth

(And send forth to the four winds of the earth)

Your new proclamation of freedom,

Of freedom, of freedom,

Which shall be the last (which shall be the last)

And shall abide forever more.
