Lyrics: Bouck White.
Tune: Bouck White.


The Commonwealth is coming.
Now in life’s morning hours,
Be to a parched landscape,
Glad refreshing showers.

Waken the country roadside,
Waken the city slum,
The toilers’ vict’ry cometh;
Ho, the foemen run!

The Commonwealth is coming;
Ye in life’s sunny noon,
Spread tireless propaganda,
Rest comes sure and soon.

Convert your hardened benchmate,
Speak to the passersby;
The Commonwealth is coming,
Liberty is nigh.

The Commonwealth is coming;
Under the sunset skies,
Now mammon’s day is closing,
Swift its daylight flies.

Work till the last beam fadeth;
Comes with the dusk no fear;
Know, when the night is darkest,
Dawn is drawing near.
