The Australian National Anthem

It is important that we know Australia’s national anthem and for this reason it is reproduced below.

.


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!

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross,
We’ll toil with heart and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours,
Renowned through all the lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas,
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine to
Advance Australia Fair!

In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair!

Information on Advance Australia Fair can be found at :

and

Both web-sites include information on a claimed ‘missing verse’ :

With Christ our head and cornerstone,
We’ll build our nations might;
Whose way and truth and light alone
Can guide our path aright;
Our lives a sacrifice of love,
Reflect our Masters care
With faces turned to Heaven above
Advance Australia Fair!

In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair!
