|Battle Hymn of the Chinese Revolution|
From the Chinese
|FREEDOM, one of the greatest blessings of Heaven,|
|United to Peace, thou wilt work on this earth ten thousand wonderful new things.|
|Grave as a spirit, great as a giant rising to the very skies,|
|With the clouds for a chariot and the wind for a steed,|
|Come, come to reign over the earth!|| 5|
|For the sake of the black hell of our slavery,|
|Come, enlighten us with a ray of thy sun!
|In this century we are working to open a new age.|
|In this century, with one voice, all virile men|
|Are calling for a new making of heaven and earth.|| 10|
|Hin-Yun, our ancestor, guide us!|
|Spirit of Freedom, come and protect us!|
