Lyrics

Mine is my country to love
Mine are the hills and the dales
Mine the cool uplands above
Mine the fresh flowers in the vales
Mine to protect in her need
Mine to defend and to save
Faithful in word and in deed,
Free as the wind and the wave,
Faithful and free
Faithful and free
Sure as the pulse of the tides of the sea
Beating around her, for ages have found her
Strong to stand my motherland
Faithful and free
Faithful and free

[Poem by Horace Wyatt 1945)
