There is power in democracy, power in the land
Power in the hands of a worker
But it all amounts to nothing if together we don't stand
There is power in a union

Now the lessons of the past were all learned in workers' blood
The mistakes of the bosses we must pay for
From the cities to the farmlands, in trenches full of mud
Cause war has always been the bosses' way, sir

The union forever defending our rights
Let's fight the right wing, all workers unite
With our brothers and sisters from many far off lands
There is power in a union

Now I long for the time that they realize
Brutality and unjust laws cannot defeat us
But who'll defend the workers who cannot organize?
When the GOP send their attorneys out to cheat us?

Money speaks for money, the devil for his own
Who'll come to speak for the skin and the bone?
What comfort to a widow, a light for a child
There is power in a union

The union forever defending our rights
Let's fight the right wing, all workers unite
With our brothers and sisters from many far off lands
There is power in a union

With social justice and equality
For every man and woman who wants it
There is power in a union
