Australia’s Next National Anthem

It’s time for us to find a new national voice.

Australians all let us rejoice
For we are young and free
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil
Our home is girt by sea
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia Fair

Oh, say can you see,
by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed
at the twilight’s last gleaming?

Whose broad stripes and bright stars,
through the perilous fight,
O’er the ramparts we watched,
were so gallantly streaming?

And the rockets’ red glare,
the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night
that our flag was still there.

O say, does that star-spangled
banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free
and the home of the brave?
