Performer: Paul Robeson.
Lyrics: Bryant M. French.
Tune: Traditional.


There’s a fresh breeze a-blowing
All across this mighty land,
And it sings of peace and progress
And prosperity at hand
With security and plenty
For the people to command
For the People’s March is on!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
For the People’s March is on!

From the village, from the city,
All the nation’s voice has roared;
Down the rivers, ’cross the prairies,
Like a torrent, it has poured;
We will march with Henry Wallace;
We will fight with Gideon’s sword,
For the People’s March is on!

Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
Glory, glory, hallelujah!
For the People’s March is on!
