If you’re hurt, sick, in pain,
Hear then now your own refrain;
If you strain and seek for truth,
There is an everlasting youth:

If you’re hanging on a tree,
Or if you’ve fallen to the ground,
Our wounds will bring us unity;
I see this blood flowing now!

Be you of heaven or the depths;
He who has right to his own breaths,
Then be it subtle, or a scream,
Lift your voice, and let it ring:

For every wrong done unto you;
For the injustice in your town;
This is a song for pastures new;
I see this blood flowing now!

If you, in battle, do prevail,
Or if your strivings come to fail,
We, hand in hand, conform as one;
And join together in this song:

Whether of roses or of thorns,
If on your head there lies a crown,
Then sound the trumpets, blast the horns;
I see this blood flowing now!
