Freedom's Sun

Freedom's Sun
(James Connolly)

O, Freedom's song by workers sung,
Rings loud and clear,
O'er every land, in every tongue,
Afar, anear.
Time passeth by,
Old systems die
Oppression's course outrun,
But Earth, rejoiced, salutes the light
Of Freedom's Sun
O, rejoicing Earth salutes the light
Of Freedom's Sun.

O, all men then their lives may live
From grim want free,
And all the joys that life can give
Their lot shall be
And care shall fly
And sea and sky
Acclaim the work well done
And Earth, rejoiced, salutes the light
Of Freedom's Sun,
O, rejoicing Earth salutes the light
Of Freedom's Sun.

No longer now revolt shall hide
In holes and caves,
Whilst those who have Oppression's pride
But find their graves
To tyrants ban
Can now make man
The truths of knowledge shun
But Earth rejoiced salutes the light
Of Freedom's Sun
O rejoicing Earth salutes the light
Of Freedom's Sun.

Our fathers saw the master's sword
His plunder glean,
But specious fraud and lying word
His thefts now screen
Yet Fraud shall fail and Truth prevail
And Justice shall be done,
And Earth rejoiced salute the light
Of Freedom's Sun
O rejoicing Earth salutes the light
Of Freedom's Sun.
