"To the Captives That Languish and Die" (karaoke)

"To the Captives That Languish and Die" (sheet music)


To the captives that languish and die

Comes the call like a clarion clear (Glad and free!).

'Tis the day of the Lord from on high.

O, arise! Your deliv'rance is near.

 

We shall be (Glad and free!)

Glad and free (Glad and free!).

Sing it out, O, ye children of men (Glad and free!).

Liberty (Glad and free!),

Liberty (Glad and free!),

O, repeat it again and again.

 

For the toilers, redemption we bring:

A release from their bondage and night (Glad and free!).

In all earth ne'er a tyrant nor king.

Glad farewell to captivity's blight.

 

We shall be (Glad and free!)

Glad and free (Glad and free!).

Sing it out, O, ye children of men (Glad and free!).

Liberty (Glad and free!),

Liberty (Glad and free!),

O, repeat it again and again.

 

The despoiler is now at an end;

His oppressions shall vex us no more (Glad and free!).

To his power no longer we'll bend;

Man upstanding shall be, as of yore.

 

We shall be (Glad and free!)

Glad and free (Glad and free!).

Sing it out, O, ye children of men (Glad and free!).

Liberty (Glad and free!),

Liberty (Glad and free!),

O, repeat it again and again.

 

So a jubilant song we will raise.

May the workers in concord unite (Glad and free!)

To producers be glory and praise,

We will banish the last parasite.

 

We shall be (Glad and free!)

Glad and free (Glad and free!).

Sing it out, O, ye children of men (Glad and free!).

Liberty (Glad and free!),

Liberty (Glad and free!),

O, repeat it again and again.
