THIS LAND is not my land
Neither is it your land
This land is God‘s gift
To inherit it you must fit
That you love one another
Sharing with one another
Giving and not just taking
The only this land will prosper
Together we shall have a life that’s proper
Australia will grow and progress
And each one of us will beget success.
Whatever you may possess, you are but a custodian . . . for nothing really ever belong to anybody in terms of time & space . . . eternity! We are but passing ships that sail through the night. With each dawn, there’s the new port of call . . . everything is in transition – nothing of permanence.
But the land will be there for all times & throughout eternity. Many a great general in historical past, or like the Trojans or the Romans, ALL have come & gone. What’s sense is there to fight & dare . . . to invade & dominate ?
Let’s co-operate & share with one another for the benefits of all!
