GREAT SOUTH LAND

This is a song that I learnt while in Australia and I thought the lyrics absolutely captured the beauty of the country. Made me want to stand, hand on my heart, and be an Aussie.

You can listen to it here, although this is not the best version I have heard:

GREAT SOUTHLAND 

This is our nation,
This is our land,
This is our future,
This is our hope.
A land of reaping,
A land of harvest,
This is our land,
This is our home.
Chorus
This is the Great South-land
of the Holy Spirit.
A land of red dust plains
and summer rains,
To this sunburnt land we will see a flood,
And to this Great South-land
His Spirit comes.
This is our nation,
This is our land,
This land of plenty
This land of hope.
The richest harvest
is in her peoples
We see revival
His spirit comes.
Chorus:
This is the Great South-land
of the Holy Spirit.
A land of red dust plains
and summer rains,
To this sunburnt land we will see a flood,
And to this Great South-land
His Spirit comes.
This is our nation,
This is our land,
This lucky country,
of dreams gone dry.
And to these peoples
we see a harvest
And to this land revival comes.
Chorus:
This is the Great South-land
of the Holy Spirit.
A land of red dust plains
and summer rains,
To this sunburnt land we will see a flood,
And to this Great South-land
His Spirit comes.
