Australia, the country of our choice

 

We hold you in great joy

 

May you ever be

 

A country for the free.

 

 

Australia, a united society

 

We stand in complete unity

 

May we not divide

 

Despite our differences wide.

 

 

Australia, transmitting righteousness

 

We hail you in fearlessness

 

May you always be fair

 

To everyone in your care.

 

 

Australia, a land of abundance

 

We greet you with substance

 

To make this a greater land

 

We must all render our hands.

 

 

Australia, a land of love and cheer

 

We shall always hold you dear

 

Let’s make this a better place to be

 

Towards this end will be our destiny.

    Totally agree with you, Paul and we need to uphold this freedom we enjoy and appreciate. Australia may be open to threats from unwanted elements and we can help make it worthwhile for our kids and generations to come.
