about

Adapted from "Because All Men Are Brothers" by Tom Glazer

lyrics

Because we all are students, wherever we may be
The world shall be one classroom, forever proud and free
No truant shall defeat us, no failure keep us down
All teachers then shall greet us, the whole wide world around

My teachers are all others, forever washing feet
Continuing examples, the merciful and meek
My teacher's fears are my fears, with grief and shame weighed down
My teacher's tears are my tears, the whole wide world around

Let every voice be thunder, let every heart be strong
Until all truants join us, our work will not be done
Let every name be spoken, the lost sheep shall be found
Let slavery's chains be broken, the whole wide world around

Because we all are teachers, wherever we may be
The world shall be one classroom, forever proud and free
No truant shall defeat us, no failure keep us down
All students then shall greet us, the whole wide world around
