MY VERSION OF THE PAPUA NEW GUINEA NATIONAL ANTHEM

O arise all you sons and daughters of this land
Let us sing of our joy to be free from colonial rule
Praising our creator, the source of all things good and right
and rejoicing to be Papua New Guinea

Shout our name from the highlands to the islands
Make sure the world knows we are a sovereign nation
and not an item to be bought and sold.
Papua New Guinea!

Let us raise our voices, yell from the mountain tops and proclaim
Papua New Guinea!

Now give thanks to the good Lord above
The God our ancestors knew but had no name for
the source of our wisdom and understanding
Give thanks for this land of our grandfathers and grandmothers
A land free and abundant
A land we will die for
A land we will guard with our lives

Shout again for the whole world to hear
That Papua New Guinea is proud, independent and free
