when good folk all agree

 long toil will end when good folk all agree

on what is just and how the work divides

and on this morning we all wake up free

 

so many years that each lack harmony

we seemed only to wait for changing tides

long toil will end when good folk all agree

 

on how we fare and how we stand to see

the ones who move or that which still abides

and on this morning we all wake up free

 

the music plays with skill and constancy

while one who would have punished simply hides

long toil will end when good folk all agree

 

on codes of honour sitting by the sea

watch as the last bad soldier changes sides

and on this morning we all wake up free

 

so now we gather under an old tree

to give our promises and choose our guides

long toil will end when good folk all agree

and on this morning we all wake up free
