    LAND of our Birth, we pledge to thee
    Our love and toil in the years to be;
    When we are grown and take our place
    As men and women with our race.

    Father in Heaven who lovest all,
    Oh, help Thy children when they call;
    That they may build from age to age
    An undefiled heritage.

    Teach us to bear the yoke in youth,
    With steadfastness and careful truth;
    That, in our time, Thy Grace may give
    The Truth whereby the Nations live.

    Teach us to rule ourselves alway,
    Controlled and cleanly night and day;
    That we may bring, if need arise,
    No maimed or worthless sacrifice.

    Teach us to look in all our ends
    On Thee for judge, and not our friends;
    That we, with Thee, may walk uncowed
    By fear or favour of the crowd.

    Teach us the Strength that cannot seek,
    By deed or thought, to hurt the weak;
    That, under Thee, we may possess
    Man's strength to comfort man's distress.

    Teach us Delight in simple things,
    And Mirth that has no bitter springs;
    Forgiveness free of evil done,
    And Love to all men 'neath the sun!

    Land of our Birth, our faith, our pride,
    For whose dear sake our fathers died;
    Oh, Motherland, we pledge to thee
    Head, heart and hand through the years to be!
