When slavery is no more,
'Tis then we'll sing and offerings bring,
When slavery is no more.

2. Come join the Abolitionists,
Ye men of riper years,
And save your wives and children dear,
From grief and bitter tears.
From grief and bitter tears,
From grief and bitter tears,
And save your wives and children dear,
From grief and bitter tears.

O that will be joyful, joyful, joyful,
O that will be joyful,
When slavery is no more,
When slavery is no more;
When slavery is no more.
'Tis then we'll sing and offerings bring,
When slavery is no more.

Ye dames and maidens fair,
And breathe around us in our path,
Affection's hallowed air.
Affection's hallowed air,
Affection's hallowed air,
And breathe around us in our path,
Affection's hallowed air.

O that will be joyful, joyful, joyful,
O that will be joyful,
When woman cheers us on,
When woman cheers us on,
To conquests not yet won,
'Tis then we'll sing and offerings bring,
When woman cheers us on.

Ye sons and daughters all
Of this our own America,
Come at the friendly call.
Come at the friendly call,
Come at the friendly call,
Of this our own America,
Come at the friendly call.

O that will be joyful, joyful, joyful,
O that will be joyful,
When all shall proudly say,
This, this is Freedom's day,
Oppression flee away!
'Tis then we'll sing and offerings bring
When freedom wins the day.
