There have been claims made of a "missing", "lost", or by implication - "censored", verse to Advance Australia Fair. This verse is rumored to have been dropped because of its non-politically correct Christian emphasis. However the truth is that this verse, although well written, was never part of the original song, or part of the official verion. It was created by an unknown person, and has been circulated widely.|
The so called "missing" verse is:
With Christ our head and cornerstone,|
We'll build our Nation's might.
Whose way and truth and light alone
Can guide our path aright.
Our lives, a sacrifice of love, reflect our Master's care.
With faces turned to heaven above, Advance Australia fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing, Advance Australia fair.
