Transcript: 

Verse 1: ‘Tis not to boast o’er other lands I sing Nor flaunt my flag with naught of courtesy But voice thy praise till echoing hills shall ring, With vibrant melodies of thee.
Chorus: Land of my heart’s love, dearest of all, Tho’ oceans divide us I come at thy call, Thy freedom enslaves me I love thy command, My home land, my own land, my heart’s dear land.
Verse 2: Quick at the sound of homelands name I thrill My strong pulse beat gives them a greater sound My soul attuned to ev’ry echoing hill Responds to thy dear names glad sound.
