A United Society Transmitting Righteousness And Love In AbundanceParliament House Canberra

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.
