No. 15. The Right Will Prevail.

Tune — "Sweet By-and-By."

1. When the Workingmen's cause shall prevail,
When the class-rule of rich men shall cease,
And the true friends of Labor will hail
With a shout the glad era of peace.

Right will reign by-and-by,
When the Workingmen come into power;
Right will reign, by-and-by,
Then the gold thieves shall rule men no more.

2. Whatsoever men sow they must reap;
Since the rich to the whirlwind have sown,
More just laws they must now learn to keep.
Then what Workingmen earn they will own.


3. Right, ordains that old parties must die
And make way for the growth of Reform;
Truth and wisdom proclaim from on high
That the triumph of Labor must come.


4. Right on earth, evermore then shall reign,
And the angels will sing once again;
While the Workingmen join the refrain,
"Peace on earth and good will unto men."
