Australia waits for you

People of Australia, rise
Rise up and face your fears
Our nation needs warriors strong
To battle forward and fight for years

Every ancestor of your ancient blood
Calls upon you to make a stand
To rise up for your people’s future
In Australia’s harsh but caring land

On this wild and bushy continent
Near Orient, but bastion of the West,
Is a nation imbued with a future grand
So long as its people do their best

To all fair dinkum Aussies
No matter from city, bush or strand
Our nation sits and holds its breath,
Waiting for you to save our land
