We live in a land of opportunity.
A land that is rich and diverse, a land that is free;
Our unique flora is a symbol for all.
As Australians we can stand very tall.
We are a prosperous nation that has been blessed.
Our great ancestors now sleep in eternal rest.
We are the benefactors of their great legacy.
Their hard work and spiritual resolve was the key.
Let us be proud of our heritage and who we are.
From the first settlement to now our nation has traveled far.
Be generous to those who are less fortunate.
We are a nation that our neighbors we will not forsake.
Be at peace and give thanks for the abundance we enjoy.
Our many gifts and talents we consecrate and employ.
Advance Australia fair, as a nation we do care.
