No. 14. Labor's "By-and-By."

Tune — "Sweet By-and-By."

1. When the right over wrong shall prevail,
And the woes of our people shall cease,
Then all trades and produces shall hail
With a shout the glad triumph of peace.

It will come, by-and-by,
When the makers to manhood have grown,
It will come, by-and-by,
Then the age of true manhood shall dawn.

2. We shall sing on that glorious day,
The melodious songs of the blest;
And our wives then shall sorrow no more,
Nor sigh for the moments of rest.


3. Then the workers shall vote for themselves,
And shall govern this land of the free;
The country, abounding in wealth,
Will resound with true pleasure and glee.
