| Young Liberty is growing fast,
he soon will be of age,
And with the tyrants of mankind the war of
Then bravely raise his banner high, let all
who would be free
Enlist to aid the sacred cause of Truth and
Our standard unto every land should ever be unfurled
With Freedom for all human kind, free commerce
with the world.
Unbound to creed, to party, sect, to colour
or to clime,
Our watchword, Freedom unto all, throughout
all space and time;
Freedom to think, to write, to speak, free
printing-press and land,
Freedom for woman and for man, in justice
The shackles from the slave shall fall, the
dungeon cease to be;
Tyrants of body and of mind, "'make way for
The faggot fires no more shall blaze for
martyrs good and brave,
Our language cease to bear the blot of master
and of slave.
Inquisitors and ruling knaves too long have
To blot from out the face of earth the rights
of all mankind;
'Tis time that Liberty should reign with
Justice, Love and Truth.
To be the guardians of mankind, the friends
of age and youth.
A free earth unto all mankind, an Eden then
To bless with plenty every home, and beautify
Then Peace and Wisdom, Truth and Love, and
Liberty shall reign,
Instead of War and haggard Want, and Tyranny
The Tongue and Pen are often far more mighty
than the sword,
Lives are destroyed by swords and guns, but
errors by a word;
Swords strike but single foes, while words
"strike thousands at a blow,"
Which, by a free unshackled press, to all
the world may flow.
