Virgin land of forest green, dark and

stormy plains, here all life abounds

Sunlit valley, mountain fields, unseen in

the rain, here all life abounds

No man rules this land, no human hand

has soiled this paradise

Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich

in Earth's delights

Painted desert, sequined sky, stars that

fill the night, here all life abounds

Rivers flowing to the sea, sunshine pure

and bright, here all life abounds

No man rules this land, no human hand

has soiled this paradise

Waiting patiently, so much to see, so rich

in Earth's delights

So the maiden lies in waiting, for the sails

to reach the shore

Land of beauty and abundance, innocent,

you opened wide your door

Wanderers found the waiting treasure,

full of gifts beyond their measure

Milk and honey for our pleasure.....


Across the sea there came a multitude,

sailing ships upon the wave

Filled with visions of Utopia, and the

freedom that they crave

Ravage, plunder, see no wonder, rape

and kill and tear asunder

Chop the forest, plow it under.....

Highways, scar the mountainsides,

buildings to the sky, people all around

So we rule this land, and here we stand

upon our paradise,

Dreaming of a place, our weary race is

ready to arise.
