Lyrics: Charles H. Kerr.
Tune: Rose Alice Cleveland.


There’s a future in store for the toilers,
Who are doing the work of the world,
For the flag of the new revolution,
We have raised and have gladly unfurled.

Your work, my work,
All of us working to bring the day
When the wage slaves shall be free men
And the children shall joyfully play.

There shall be neither masters nor idlers
In the state we are striving to build,
But we all shall have work that is pleasure,
And with gladness each day shall be filled.

Your work, my work,
All of us working to bring the day
When the wage slaves shall be free men
And the children shall joyfully play.

We can hasten that day or delay it,
For ’tis coming when all of the poor
Shall revolt and shall struggle together
Till they make their deliverance sure.

Your work, my work,
Work for us all to arouse the poor
Till they stand forth in their own strength
To make their deliverance sure.
