31 Days of Where I live (day 13) - National Song

Day 13 of write 31

Unlike the National Anthem we don't stand at attention for this song. Like the National Pledge it was written by Marjorie Padmore. There are a few other songs classified as National Songs but this is the original.

God Bless Our Nation

God bless our nation 
Of many varied races
May we possess that common love 
That binds and makes us One.
Let it be known around the World
That we can boast of Unity
And take a pride in Our Liberty.

God bless our isles of tropic beauty rare
Of flaming Poinciana
And shady immortelle
The warm and sparkling waters
That beat upon our shores
Beat out a tune that seem to tell
We take a pride in Our Liberty.

God bless our leaders
Give them grace to guide
Bestow on them thy judgement wise
To rule our land aright
To keep the flag of freedom high that we may sing most lustily
We take a pride in Our Liberty.
