122 Songs That Every Child Should Know
With luxury and pride surrounded, The vile, insensate despots dare,
Their thirst of power and gold unbounded, : To mete and vend the light and air; :
Like beasts of burden would they load us,
Like gods would bid their slaves adore;
But man is man, and who is more?
Then, shall they longer lash and goad us? Ref. To arms, to arms, ye brave! etc.
Oh, Liberty, can man resign thee!
Once having felt thy gen'rous flame? Can dungeon, bars and bolts confine thee, I : Or whips thy noble spirit tame? : Too long the world has wept, bewailing That falsehood's dagger tyrants wield; But freedom is our sword and shield, And all their arts are unavailing.
Ref. To arms, to arms, ye brave! etc.
Russian Hymn
