"The Wide-Awakes" (karaoke)

"The Wide-Awakes" (sheet music)


Lo, our secret we gladly tell:

Boldness and joy and zeal!

Thus, we conquer o'er gates of hell:

Boldness and joy and zeal!

Socialism's beauty

Teaches faith and duty.

 

List to the call! Offer to all:

Boldness and joy and zeal.

Matrons and men, sing it again:

Boldness and joy and zeal.

 

Ye who languish your lives away,

Boldness and joy and zeal,

Come; your darkness we'll turn to day,

Boldness and joy and zeal.

Message high and holy;

Rescue of the lowly.

 

List to the call! Offer to all:

Boldness and joy and zeal.

Matrons and men, sing it again:

Boldness and joy and zeal.

 

Comrades, blaze it afar and near,

Boldness and joy and zeal!

Revolution that knows no fear,

Boldness and joy and zeal.

Ours a high endeavor;

Turning back, no, never.

 

List to the call! Offer to all:

Boldness and joy and zeal.

Matrons and men, sing it again:

Boldness and joy and zeal.
