Labor Day Song I Vaguely Remember
There is a song I learned in my fourth grade ('53-'54) which seems most appropriate for the Labor Day celebration. I don't exactly know the title to it. I vaguely remember it as "The Dignity of Labor." But I remember singing it with my chapter delegates at the provincial 4H-Club rally during my junior year in high school ('60) to the generous acclaim of both the judges and the general audience.
If anyone knows anything about it, please be kind enough to fill me in. I want to put it in some historical context of sorts.
The lyrics goes like this:
The Dignity of Labor
Out in the world we are going
Striving in life's glorious den
Joy and success ever seeking
Hoping to conquer and win
Labor's our best inspiration
Thrilling both body and mind
Labor enriches the nation
God's gracious gift to mankind.
In loving world there is honor
Labor with love wins the strife
Dignify and cherish labor
Giving our nation with life.
