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