Lyrics: Douglas Robson.
Tune: Rudolf Liebich.


We are coming, all united,
Throbbing with unmeasured pow’r.
Through the darkness un-affrighted,
We have waited for this hour.
Now, we rise, before us sweeping
All the galling ties that bind,
And our fiery veins are leaping
With the blood of all mankind.

We are coming unforgiving
And the earth resounds our tread:
Bone and sinew of the living,
Spirit of the rebel dead.
You who sowed the winds of sorrow,
Now the whirlwind you must dare.
As you face upon the morrow
The Advancing Proletaire!

Years of labor, years of anguish,
Gallows grim and dungeon cell,
All your boasted pow’rs to vanquish
Have but taught us to rebel;
Now the mighty giant has risen
From the slumber of the years,
And for him your strongest prison
Has no terrors and no fears.

We are coming unforgiving
And the earth resounds our tread:
Bone and sinew of the living,
Spirit of the rebel dead.
You who sowed the winds of sorrow,
Now the whirlwind you must dare.
As you face upon the morrow
The Advancing Proletaire!
