Hymn/Song Information

These things shall be a loftier race




These things shall be: a loftier race
Than eíer the world hath known shall rise
With flame of freedom in their souls
And light of knowledge in their eyes.


They shall be gentle, brave, and strong
To spill no drop of blood, but dare
All that may plant manís lordship firm
On earth, and fire, and sea, and air.


Nation with nation, land with land,
Inarmed shall live as comrades free;
In every heart and brain shall throb
The pulse of one fraternity.


Man shall love man with heart as pure
And fervent as the young-eyed throng
Who chant their heavenly psalms before
Godís face with undiscordant song.


New arts shall bloom of loftier mould,
And mightier music thrill the skies,
And every life shall be a song,
when all the earth is paradise.


There shall be no more sin, nor shame,
Though pain and passion may not die;
For man shall be at one with God
In bonds of firm necessity.
