1 Who are the patriots? Those who light
the torch of war from hill to hill?
Or those who kindle on the heights
the beacons of a world's good will?
2 Who are the patriots? Those who serve
this globe suspended in the dark of space.
This fragile planet they conserve,
the homeland of the human race.
3 We draw our boundaries in our pride,
defend them with our children's blood.
But rains and winds and ocean tides
declare the truth; the world is one.
4 Who are the patriots? Only those
whose purpose is the common good,
who in their love all lands enclose,
whose world is all one neighborhood.
