LAND OF THE FREE

0, Land of the Free by the Carib Sea,

Our manhood we pledge to thy liberty!

No tyrants here linger, despots must flee

This tranquil haven of democracy

The blood of our sires which hallows the sod,

Brought freedom from slavery oppression's rod,

By the might of truth and the grace of God.

No longer shall we be hewers of wood.


Arise! ye sons of the Baymen's clan,

Put on your armour, clear the land!

Drive back the tyrants, let despots flee-

Land of the Free by the Carib Sea!


Nature has blessed thee with wealth untold,

O'er mountains and-valleys where praireis roll;

Our fathers, the Baymen, valiant and bold

Drove back the invaders; this heritage hold

From proud Rio Hondo to old Sarstoon,

Through coral isle, over blue lagoon;

Keep watch with the angels, the stars and moon:

For freedom comes to-morrow's noon.

Chorus.
