Come, I will make the continent indissoluble,
I will make the most splendid race the sun ever shone upon,
I will make divine magnetic lands,
                  With the love of comrades,
                     With the life—long love of comrades.
 
I will plant companionship thick as trees along all the rivers of America, and along the shores of the great lakes, and all over the prairies,
I will make inseparable cities with their arms about each other’s necks,
                  By the love of comrades,
                     By the manly love of comrades.
 
For you these from me, O Democracy, to serve you ma femme!
For you, for you I am trilling these songs.
