I Love My Motherland (1)
- Motherland! tho' the mighty seas divide us,
- And your sons were scatter'd one and all,
- There came a day — your fam'ly were united,
- 'Twas the day they heard your call.
- Other nations ask the reason why:
- From each of us they hear this proud reply.
I Love My Motherland (2)
- I love my Motherland, and where I may be,
- There is no other land like the Motherland to me;
- I may be far away, over miles of ocean blue,
- But motherland, dear Motherland, my heart is still with you!
I Love My Motherland (3)
- Motherland! you have sons who came from India,
- And the lads from far Australia's shore;
- Canadian boys, too, keep the old flag flying,
- It's a flag worth fighting for.
- Irish, Scotch, and Welsh, with English sign
- In unity, for Empire, Home, and King.
