Lyrics: John Jones.
Tune: John Jones.


Now sound ye forth with trumpet tone;
Let all the nations fear;
Speak to the world the thrilling words
That tyrants quail to hear;
And write them bold on Freedom’s flag;
And wave it in the van;
’Tis the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man.
’Tis the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man.

Upon the sunny mountain brow,
Among the busy throng,
Proclaim the day for which our hearts
Have prayed and waited long;
The grandest words that men have heard
Since e’er the world began
Are the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man,
Are the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man.

Too long the night of ignorance
Has brooded o’er the mind;
Too long the love of wealth and pow’r,
And not the love of kind;
Now let the blessed truth be flashed
To earth’s remotest span
Of the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man,
Of the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man.

Oh, ye who trample on the hearts
And chain the minds of men,
The sword is shivered in your grasp:
Broke by the mighty pen.
And right shall yet prevail, in spite
Of king or priestly ban,
By the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man,
By the Fatherhood of God
And the Brotherhood of Man.
