Arise!

Arise, you prisoners of starvation,
Arise, you wretched of the earth,
For Justice thunders condemnation -
A new world's now in birth!
No more tradition's chains shall bind us
Arise, you slaves, no more in thrall!
The Earth shall have a new foundation!
We have been naught - we shall be all!

So, comrades, rally
And the last fight let us face!
The International
Unites the human race!

No savior from on High deliver,
No trust we'll place in prince or peer;
Our own right hands our chains will sever -
Chains of hatred, greed and fear!
Ere the thief is forced to share his booty,
And to all give a happier lot,
Each at his forge must do his duty,
And strike while the iron is hot!

So, comrades, rally
And the last fight let us face!
The International
Unites the human race!

So, comrades, rally
And the last fight let us face!
The International
Unites the human race!
