Blow, bugle, blow!
The day has dawned at last.
Blow, blow, blow!
The fearful night is past;
The prophets realize their dreams.
Lo! in the east the glory gleams.
Blow, bugle, blow!
The day has dawned at last.

Blow, bugle, blow!
The soul of man is free.
The rod and sword of king and lord
Shall no more honored be;
For God alone shall govern men,
And Love shall come to earth again.
Blow, bugle, blow!
The soul of man is free.

Blow, bugle, blow!
Though rivers run with blood,
All greed and strife, and lust for life,
Are passing with the flood.
The gory beast of war is cowed;
The world's great heart with grief is bowed.
Blow, bugle, blow!
The day has dawned at last.
