    Australians all let us rejoice,

    For we are young and free;

    We've golden soil and wealth for toil,

    Our home is girt by sea;

    Our land abounds in Nature's gifts

    Of beauty rich and rare;

    In history's page, let every stage

    Advance Australia fair!

    In joyful strains then let us sing,

    "Advance Australia fair!"

    When gallant Cook from Albion sail'd,

    To trace wide oceans o'er,

    True British courage bore him on,

    Till he landed on our shore.

    Then here he raised Old England's flag,

    The standard of the brave;

    With all her faults we love her still,

    "Brittannia rules the wave!"

    In joyful strains then let us sing

    "Advance Australia fair!"

    Beneath our radiant southern Cross,

    We'll toil with hearts and hands;

    To make this Commonwealth of ours

    Renowned of all the lands;

    For those who've come across the seas

    We've boundless plains to share;

    With courage let us all combine

    To advance Australia fair.

    In joyful strains then let us sing

    "Advance Australia fair!"

    While other nations of the globe

    Behold us from afar,

    We'll rise to high renown and shine

    Like our glorious southern star;

    From England, Scotia, Erin's Isle,

    Who come our lot to share,

    Let all combine with heart and hand

    To advance Australia fair!

    In joyful strains then let us sing

    "Advance Australia fair!"

    Shou'd foreign foe e'er sight our coast,

    Or dare a foot to land,

    We'll rouse to arms like sires of yore

    To guard our native strand;

    Brittannia then shall surely know,

    Beyond wide ocean's roll,

    Her sons in fair Australia's land

    Still keep a British soul.

    In joyful strains the let us sing

    "Advance Australia fair!"
