Lyrics: Ethel Comer.
Tune: “Stand Up for Jesus.”

Stand up! Stand up, ye workers!
Stand up in all your might.
Unite beneath our banner
For liberty and right.
From vict’ry unto vict’ry,
This army sure will go
To win the world for labor
And vanquish every foe.

Stand up! Stand up, ye workers!
Stand up in every land.
Unite and fight for freedom
In One Big Union grand.
Put on the workers’ armor,
Which is the card of Red;
Then, all the greedy tyrants
Will have to earn their bread.

Arouse! Arouse, ye toilers!
The strife will not be long:
This day the noise of battle;
The next the victor’s song.
All ye who slave for wages
Stand up and break your chain:
Unite in One Big Union.
You’ve got a world to gain.
