Representative Text

1 The men of our America
Have freely fought and died,
That they might stay forevermore
Oppression’s cruel tide;
And now a call is sounding forth
From sea to shining sea,
The manhood of America
For the man of Galilee.

Refrain:
He died to make us free,
Then let our watchword be,
“The manhood of America
For the man of Galilee.”

2 The men of our America,
Whose hearts are true as steel,
And tender as a mother’s heart
A brother’s hurt to feel,
Have made a wondrous sacrifice
In lands across the sea;
The men of our America
Like the man of Galilee. [Refrain]

3 The men of our America;
Upon life’s battle field
Their watchword “victory or death,”
They know not how to yield;
And now with tyranny o’erthrown,
God grant we soon may see
The manhood of America
For the man of Galilee. [Refrain]
