O my Australia

O my Australia, Australia, Australia!
I love your beauty’s vastness green,
I love your heart’s sweet unseen cry.
Your new soul knows no bondage-screen;
It beckons your body’s strength to fly.

O my Australia, Australia, Australia!
No foe have you: a matchless surprise.
Your simple, soulful life of love
At God’s express Hour choice shall rise.
Yours is the trumpet-triumph here and above.
O my Australia, Australia, Australia!
