O God, who made this ancient land,|
And set it round with sea,
Sustain us all who dwell herein,
One people strong and free.
Grant we may guard its generous gifts,
Its beauty rich and rare.
In your great name, may we proclaim,
"Advance, Australia fair!"
With thankful hearts then let us sing,
"Advance Australia, fair!"
Your star-bright Cross aslant our skies
