    • Beast of England, beast of Ireland, Beast of every land and clime,
    • Hearken to my joyful tidings
    • Of my golden future time.
    • Soon or late the day is coming,
    • Tyrant Man shall be o’erthrown,
    • And the fruitful fields of England
    • Shall be trod by beast alone.
    • Rings shall vanish from our noses,
    • And the harness from our back,
    • Bit and spur shall rust forever,
    • Cruel whips no more shall crack.
    • Riches more than mind can picture,
    • Wheat and barley, oats and hay,
    • Clover, beans, and mangel-wurzels
    • Shall be ours upon that day.
    • Bright will shine the field of England,
    • Purer shall its waters be,
    • Sweeter yet shall blow its breezes
    • On the day that sets us free.
    • For that day we all must labour,
    • Though we die before it break;
    • Cows and horses, geese and turkeys,
    • All must toil for freedom’s sake.
    • Beast of England, beast of Ireland,
    • Beast of every land and clime,
    • Hearken to my joyful tidings
    • Of my golden future time.
