Lyrics: Samuel H. Friedman.
Tune: M. Posner.


’Mid the blaze of a world in commotion,
The light of true freedom we sought.
Here at home and far over the ocean,
To the forge of our vision we brought
The fire of our love and devotion
And a union of workers we wrought.

A timeless bond unites us:
A ring of tempered steel.
One radiant beacon lights us
To peace and common weal.
Stand all for one and one for all:
The working class ideal.

On the anvil of struggle created,
The union’s our armor and shield.
The branches are links that are mated
In molding the weapon we wield.
So, forward with zeal unabated!
Our fervor will conquer the field!

A timeless bond unites us:
A ring of tempered steel.
One radiant beacon lights us
To peace and common weal.
Stand all for one and one for all:
The working class ideal.
