Lyrics: James Weber Linn (3)

Music: Eleanor Smith

Let us sing as we go, Votes for Women!
Let us sing as we go, Votes for Women!
Though the way may be hard, Tho' the battle be long,
Yet our triumph is sure; put your heart into song,
Into cheering and song: Votes for Women!
For the right sall prevail over wrong!

See! the banner is bright streaming o'er us,
And the barred road lies open befor us;
Let the trumpet be blown, Let our purpose be known,
Put your voice and your soul in the chorus!

Let us sing as we go, Votes for Women!
Let us sing as we go, Votes for Women!
There's a voice we have heard, And shall hear till we die;
By its word we are stirred, And as one we reply;
It is nigh, it is nigh, Votes for Women!
For the right sall prevail over wrong!

Let us sing as we go, Votes for Women!
Let us sing as we go, Votes for Women!
Though the way may be hard, Tho' the battle be long,
Yet our triumph is sure; put your heart into song,
Into cherring and song: Votes for Women!
For the right sall prevail over wrong!
