Awake! Awake, Australia!
Awake from peaceful ease!
The nations great are calling thee,
From distant lands and seas.
Dormant days are ended,
Thy hours of rest are run;
Now rouse thee, for a nation's work,
And keep the Empire won!
Beneath thy bright blue skies,
Australia Fair, arise!

Awake! Awake, Australia!
Old Father Neptune cries,
"My children have to Manhood grown
Beneath the southern skies;
My northern sons have led you,
brave, darling men of old.
Now southern seas,
bring forth your men of worth and courage bold!
Beneath thy bright blue skies,
Australia Fair, arise!

Awake! Awake, Australia!
Old Britain's bracing cheer
Is borne across the waters far,
And all her children hear.
The echoes are replying
From chimes o'er all the world
Australia fair must lead the van,
With banner bright unfurled!
Beneath thy bright blue skies,
Australia Fair, arise!
