Lyrics
Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven, heaven ring
Ring with the harmonies of dignity
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
Sing, sing a song full of the faith that the present has brought us
Facing the rising sun of our new, new day, day begun
Let us march on till victory
We’ve got to march on, my brothers and my, my sisters
Let us march, march on
By the way it gets dark and it gets me down sometimes, oh yeah
We’ve got to march on till victory, victory is won

Català – Alcem Totes Les Veus I Cantem
Alcem totes les veus i cantem
Fins que la terra i el cel, cel resonin
Resonin amb les harmonies de la dignitat
Deixem que la nostra alegre ascenció
Tan alta com el cel que ens escolta
Ressoni forta com el mar agitat
Cantem una cançó plena de la fe que el fosc passat ens ha ensenyat
Cantem, cantem una cançó plena de la fe que el present ens ha portat
De cara al sol naixent del nostre nou, nou dia, dia començat
Marxem fins a la victòria
Hem de marxar, germans meus i germanes meves
Marxem, marxem
Per cert es fa fosc i em deprimeix de vegades, oh sí
Hem de marxar fins que victòria, la victòria sigui guanyada
