Arise, ye workers from your slumbers,
Arise, ye prisoners of want.
For reason in revolt now thunders,
and at last ends the age of cant!
Away with all your superstitions,
Servile masses, arise, arise!
We'll change henceforth the old tradition,
And spurn the dust to win the prize!
 So comrades, come rally,
 And the last fight let us face.
 The Internationale,
 Unites the human race.
