lyrics

O workmen awake, for the strife is at hand,
With right on your side, then with hope firmly stand –
To meet your oppressors, go, fearlessly go,
And stand like the brave with your face to the foe.
Stand like the brave, stand like the brave,
Stand like the brave with your face to the foe.

Whatever’s the danger take heed and beware,
And turn not your back – for nor armour is there:
Seek righteous reward for your labour – then go
And stand like the brave with your face to the foe.
Stand like the brave, etc

The cause of each other with vigour defend,
Be honest and true and fight to the end;
Where duty may lead you, go – fearlessly go,
And stand like the brave with your face to the foe.

Stand like the brave, etc

We fight not alone who seek to be freed,
But friends from afar send us help when we need;
And kindly they whisper, saying hopefully go,
And stand like the brave with your face to the foe.
Stand like the brave, etc

Let hope then still cheer us, though long be the strife,
More comforts shall come to the workman’s home life;
More food for our children, demand it – then go
And stand like the brave with your face to the foe

Stand like the brave, etc

Press on, never doubting, redemption draws near –
Poor serfs shall arise from oppression and fear;
Though great ones oppose you, they cannot o’erthrow
If you stand like the brave with your face to the foe

Stand like the brave, etc
