Awake! Be Free! (H. W. Fuison)

“Awake! Be Free!” Sheet Music (pdf).
“Awake! Be Free!” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: H. W. Fuison.
Tune: “America (My Country, ’Tis of Thee).”

Our country, great and grand,
Is known in every land
As freedom’s home.
Yet through man’s greed and lust,
Through laws the most unjust,
And from the giant trust,
Great evils come.

Our liberties are gone,
Justice no more is done
To faithful toil.
But want and woeful need
From Mammon’s reign proceed,
Which hurtful tumults breed
And freedoms spoil.

How long shall we be slaves
And bow to sordid knaves
Who rob the poor?
Let every man awake
And freedom’s weapon take,
The yoke of bondage break,
And serve no more.

Great God of Liberty!
Through truth that maketh free,
Make free the land.
Give us to see the light,
Lead us to follow right,
And show that right is might,
By Thine own hand.

Our country then shall be
A home for brave and free
And noble men.
No landlord then shall reign
To clutch the toiler’s gain,
Our flag without a stain
Shall wave again.
