Westralia

By Alfred Chandler   


Crowned by radiant sun and sea,
Dowered with golden liberty,
All our hopes are prayers for thee---
Westralia!


Land of promise, proudly won
from the kingdom of the sun,
Now thy glory has begun---
Westralia!


Brightest land in all the world,
Rosy dawned and moon-impearled,
With thy flag of faith unfurled---
Westralia!


Land of milk and honey dew,
Land of sons and daughters true,
Land of gleaming gold and blue---
Westralia!


Fairest land, we love the best,
Home, sweet home, our joy and rest ;
Tired, we nestle to thy breast---
Westralia!


Sweetest name for poesy,
Breathed in softest melody,
All our songs we offer thee---
Westralia!
