Let freemen’s hearts grow bolder;
Let freedom’s banner fly
Where God’s four winds unfold her
To God’s uncharted sky.
His Word and not another’s
Is pledged to liberty;
His hand hath made men brothers,
His truth shall make men free.

Where freedom’s flag is flying
In lands across the sea
On Thee we are relying,
Great God, we count on Thee!
For right is right forever,
Though men have crowned the wrong,
And truth shall perish never—
Great God, how long? how long?

When our brave lads are dying
In lands across the sea,
On Thee we are relying,
Great God, they die for Thee!
And if we lay them sleeping
In lands beyond the sea,
God, have them in Thy keeping—
We leave them there with Thee.
