VP_016774 Verse 1There is a land where summer skies Are gleaming with a thousand dyes, Blending in witching harmonies, in harmonies, And grassy knoll and forest height, Are flushing in the rosy light, And all above is azure bright, Australia, Australia, Australia! Verse 2There is a land where honey flows, Where laughing corn luxuriant grows; Land of the myrtle and the rose, myrtle and rose. On hill and plain the clust'ring vine Is gushing out with purple wine, And cups are quaff'd to thee and thine, Australia, Australia, Australia! Verse 3There is a land where treasures shine, Deep in the dark unfathom'd mine For worshippers at Mammon's shrine, at Mammon's shrine Where gold lies hid, and rubies gleam, And fabl'd wealth no more doth seem The idle fancy of dream, Australia, Australia, Australia! Verse 4There is a land where homesteads peep From sunny plain and woodland steep, And love and joy bright vigils keep; Where the glad voice of childish glee Is mingling with the melody Of nature's hidden minstrelsy. Australia, Australia, Australia! Verse 5There is a land where, floating free, From mountain top to girdling sea, A proud flag waves exultingly; And freedom's sons the banner bear; No shackl'd slave can breath the air Fairest of Britain's daughters fair. Australia, Australia, Australia!
