We are the Youth of Australia [song, 16 January 1930]

We are the Youth of Australia

(Copyright.)

We are the Youth of Australia!
Youth of a glorious land!
Young in a country that’s youthful,
Shoulder to shoulder we stand.

We are the Youth of Australia!
Eager and happy and free.
Forward we march in her service,
Onward in strong Unity.

We are the Youth of Australia!
Sons of the Southern Cross, all.
Hearts beating true for Australia:
Ready to answer her call.

We are the Youth of Australia!
Standing for Peace — and Goodwill.
Woe to all those who disturb her;
Woe to all working her ill.

We are the Youth of Australia!
“Motherland First!” is our cry —
“Brotherhood, Country and Empire”
These we will live for, and die.

We are the Youth of Australia!
“God save Australia!” we sing.
“Good save Australia for ever.
Fear God and honour the King!”
