of the National Anthem
and daughters of Saint Lucia love the land that gave us birth. Land
of beaches, hills and valleys, fairest isle of all the earth. Wheresoever
you may roam, love, oh love, our island home.
the times when nations battled for this Helen of the West. Gone
the days when strife and discord, dimmed her children’s toil and rest. Dawns
at last a brighter day, stretches out a glad new way.
the Good Lord bless our island; guard her sons from woe and harm. May
our people, live united, strong in soul and strong in arm. Justice,
truth and charity, our ideals forever be.
