1 All men are equal in their birth,
Heirs of the earth and skies;
All men are equal when that earth
Fades from their dying eyes.
2 God meet the throngs who pay their vows
In courts that hands have made,
And hears the worshiper who bows
Beneath the plantain shade.
3 Oh, let man hasten to restore
To all their rights of love;
In power and wealth exult no more;
In wisdom lowly move.
4 Ye great, renounce your earth-born pride;
Ye low, your shame and fear;
Live, as ye worship, side by side;
Your brotherhood revere.
