God save our native land, And make her strong

Representative Text

1 God save our native land
And make her strong to stand
For truth and right;
Long may her banner wave,
Flag of the free and brave!
Thou who alone canst save,
Grant her Thy might.

2 Ever from sea to sea
May law and liberty
O’er all prevail.
Where’er the rivers flow,
Where’er the breezes blow,
Let love and justice grow
And never fail.

3 In living unity
May all her people be
Kept evermore.
From here on every side
May freedom’s swelling tide
Roll grandly, far and wide,
To every shore.

4 O God, to Thee we raise
Our grateful song of praise
For this glad land.
Thou didst our fathers lead,
Thou wilt their children heed,
Supplying all their need
From Thy full hand.
