Lyrics

  1. 1. Do what is right; the day-dawn is breaking,
    Hailing a future of freedom and light.
    Angels above us are silent notes taking
    Of ev'ry action; then do what is right!
  2. (Chorus)
    Do what is right; let the consequence follow.
    Battle for freedom in spirit and might;
    And with stout hearts look ye forth till tomorrow.
    God will protect you; then do what is right!
  3. 2. Do what is right; the shackles are falling.
    Chains of the bondsmen no longer are bright;
    Lightened by hope, soon they'll cease to be galling.
    Truth goeth onward; then do what is right!
  4. 3. Do what is right; be faithful and fearless.
    Onward, press onward, the goal is in sight.
    Eyes that are wet now, ere long will be tearless.
    Blessings await you in doing what's right!
  5. Text: Anon., The Psalms of Life, Boston, 1857
    Music: George Kaillmark, 1781-1835
