Song: The Brotherhood of Man
Lyrics: Raymond A. Brown(1)

Music: Theodore F. Morse(1)
Year: 1901(1)
Genre:
Country: USA(1)


Though the storms of war we have felt before,
    Yet the worst blow's still to fall;
It is Money's fight 'gainst the toiler's right
    They are drifting beyong recall.
'Tis the hour at last, they are gath'ring fast
    While the world thrills with alarms,
As the giants wait with their hearts of hate
    For the signal the call to arms.

CHORUS 1:
But the time will come when strife will cease,
    And together in the land,
Side by side the hosts of toil and gold
    will go marching hand in hand;
For the things we see are only part of
    the mighty Maker's plan,
And the link that holds when others break
    is the brotherhood of man.
But the man.

Though they quarrel long, right shall conquer wrong,
    And, like sunshine after rain,
When the fight is done they will work as one,
    At the problem of life again,
Each will understand that the other's hand
    Is a friend's in spite of all.
For they both have need of the other's deed
    And together must stand or fall.

CHORUS 2:
For the time will come when strife will cease,
    And together in the land,
Side by side the hosts of toil and gold
    will go marching hand in hand;
For the things we see are only part of
    the mighty Maker's plan,
And the link that holds when others break
    is the brotherhood of man.
For the man.
