Hear the simple truth we’re singing,
Hear it and be glad to stand.
Now step forward free in spirit,
Join with lovers of this land!
Louder, prouder, truer and surer,
Strong to endure o’er tyranny,
Man and woman height of human,
Loving life will ever be!
Thousand voices joy in praising
Joy itself arising high;
Choir of life’s soul abiding
In the light of every “I”!
Flash of sun and crash of lightning,
Ha, ha, ha! Their love is strong
For this force of song uniting
In man’s mind that does belong!
