In all that we are,
It is better by far
To follow our star,
And sing out our truth.

When things can’t get worse,
We hunger and thirst
For the last to be first;
And so we sing out our truth.

We sing for the poor.
We sing for the weak.
We sing for the helpless,
The hopeless, the meek.
We sing out the truth
Against hunger and hate.
We sing out for justice
Before it’s too late!

And in all that we do
For these, and for you,
The whole dark night through
We’re gonna sing out our truth!
