Under Southern Stars

Believe it or not, dumped Australian Immigration Minister, Amanda Vanstone has written an ode to Australia and has even gone as far as to have a demo of the new song recorded by a singer with the Sydney Opera. The demo has been submitted to Sony BMG for consideration but no feedback has been received from them yet. But I must say, I find it pretty powerful and certainly the lyrics evoke a greater sense of national pride. In many ways perhaps, more than our current national anthem.

The original story can be read here.

To be honest, the demo audio does not do the lyrics justice (in my opinion) but it’s posted for you to get an idea of how it could sound.

Under Southern Stars

Home to first Australians,

Joined from near and far,

Shining light for freedom,

Under Southern Stars.

Nation made of many,

Bound in hope as one,

Building for the future,

Under Southern Sun.

Free and Friendly Nation,

Born of our own hand,

Peace our greatest virtue,

Mighty Southern Land.

Valiant into Battle,

Courage to the end,

Standing firm for freedom,

Loyal southern friend.

Nature’s earthly heaven,

Glory for our eyes,

Ours alone those treasures,

Under Southern Skies.

Shining light for Freedom

Under Southern Stars.
