Lyrics: Charles H. Kerr.
Tune: “Tramp! Tramp! Tramp!”


In our poverty and toil,
Looking out upon the world,
We can see the gath’ring armies of the Cause;
And we feel ourselves a part
Of the new, resistless pow’r
That shall sweep away oppression and its laws.

Tramp, tramp, tramp, you hear us marching;
Millions now are on the way;
And our army ne’er shall pause
Till the right to live is ours
And the sun has risen on a fairer day.

In the shops and in the slums,
Working, suff’ring day by day,
We are making wealth for millionaires to hold;
But with joy, we pledge our faith
To the Cause of all who toil
Till the better social order shall unfold.

Tramp, tramp, tramp, you hear us marching;
Millions now are on the way;
And our army ne’er shall pause
Till the right to live is ours
And the sun has risen on a fairer day.

In the days that are to be,
When the Cause we love has won,
We shall labor for ourselves and for our own;
Each for all and all for each,
And, through many joyful years,
We shall pluck the fruit that comrades brave have sown.

Tramp, tramp, tramp, you hear us marching;
Millions now are on the way;
And our army ne’er shall pause
Till the right to live is ours
And the sun has risen on a fairer day.
