AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL ANTHEM: my attempt with minor changes. Adding 'dream time' might it may help us recognise the original peoples of our land.

Australians all let us rejoice, this ancient land that sets us free
The dream time is our heritage, it’s what makes us young and free;
 We’ve golden soil and wealth to share, our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts, beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let us strive to Advance Australia Fair.
 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
