Lyrics: 


Whirlwinds of danger are raging around us
O'erwhelming forces of darkness assail
Brothers and sisters in hunger are calling
Shall we be silent to their sorrow and woe?

Then forward refugee, freedom awaits
Over the world on land and sea
On with the fight for the cause of humanity
March, refugee and the world shall be free

Too much the sea has claimed her toll
Don't let her take a soul no more
Reach out your hand, reach out to me
Till the children are safe and free

Too much the sea has claimed her toll
Don't let her take a soul no more
Reach out, my friend, reach out to me
Till the children are safe and free
