Pride of Nations

I CAME across this beautiful poem by Muhammad Amjad Khan, a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, about Australia Day and I would like to share it with my wider community.

ANJUM H. QAISRANI,

South Lake.

LET’S sing together “Happy Australia Day”

O, pride of nations, be victorious all the way.

The best of nations shall respect your rights

It’s a free country, with lovely day and nights.

The days are G’day and nights are G’night

So, joy all together with barbecue tonight.

The land is awesome and the future is bright

Aussies are best lovers, they love you M’ate.

Let’s sing together “Happy Australia Day”

O, pride of nations, be victorious all the way.

Love of the country is the part of our faith

This golden saying is the blessing we bathe.

Any colour we have or belong to any race

We have “no worries”, we blend with grace.

Love for all and hatred for none, the best slogan

God bless this nation which embraces everyone

Let’s sing together “Happy Australia Day”

O, pride of nations, be victorious all the way.
