No Dobler theme can ye indite Than that which makes our hearts rejoice,

And thrills our pulses with delight None greater has the world e er seen    *

Victoria, hail! Victoria, hail!

Our mother and our Queen

Blow now, ye zephyrs, e’er so softly,

Laden with perfume sweet and rare.

Carrying on your sun-kissed pinions A greeting to our lady fair Hail, then 1 all hail, sweet, gentle lady,

Clad with a noble, gracious mien.

Proudly Australia's children greet thee.

Proudly and fondly hail our Queen.

Brightly has sbono thy proud escutcheon Since that renowned auspicious day When o'er the world's most favour'd nation Thou did at assume thy gracious sway.

Brightly has shone old England's glory,

Proudly her flag on land and sea.

Bravely her soldiers grim and gory Have e'er upheld thy throne and thee

Then let us now. with true devotion,

All with one voice sincerely pray.

That our loved Queen beyond the ocean May yet be spared to see the day One mighty people, one Australia,

One grand united nation stands ,

And. ever clad in Love's regalia.

Proudly upholds our mother land

Hail, then, Victoria ' Britannia's ruler I Long may thine undivided s\Vay O'er all tby peoples still be wielded.

Who now to thee sweet homage pay Thrice happy monarch' May God's angels Still guard and keep thy life serene.

Loyal and true, thy countless people Ever will pray—" God save the Queen I"

' Australia's Sunny Clima,"

(By Stunlx Conducted by Mr J IF. Turner.) Glorious country, clad in beauty,

Neath thy bright and sunny skies . Songs of love, content and duty Ever upward shall arise Songs of love, content and duty. Sparkling all the livelong day,

Thou hast charms that never weary, Charms that seem to live alway Hark ! yon songster gaily trilling Forth hi* gladsome melody.

With his notes the woodland filling Full of liquid harmony While the bush, its echoes ringing.

Starts and teems with tenants rare,

And within sweet flow'rcts springing, Deck the green sward everywhere. Then, with friendship s chain cemented, Neath thy skies of ay.ure blue.

May thy people dwell contentod,

Ever loyal, brave and true.

Then, Australia -fair Australia—

May thv countless progeny.

Ever clad in Lot e's regalia.

Weave thy glorious destiny '

“ Australia."

(Composed and conducted by Herr A lye* ) Sun-bright land of liberty.

Hail! hcroofter thou shaft be Brighter than the brightest gem In the century s diadem.

And. while under peaceful skies.

Years on throngiug years shall rise,

As it ficeteth each shall shed Greater glory on thy head .

Till, with starry flag unfurled.

'    Thou shah shine a light sublime.

Streaming thro' the mists of time.

In the twilight of the nations,

Down the evening of the world. Sun-bright land of liberty.

Hail! hereafter tbou shaft be Brighter than the brightest gem In the century's diadem.

"Rule, Britannia!"

(By Dr Arm. Conducted by Mr J. Conuay ) When Britain first, at Heaven's command. Arose from out the azure main.

This was the charter of the land.

And guardian angels sang this strain— Kale. Britannia ' Britannia rules the waves•    Britans never, never, never will be slaves.

The nations not so blest as thee Must in their turn to tyrants (all.

While tbou shalt flourish, great and free,

The dread and envy of them all ,    Kule. Britannia ! Ac.

The muses, still with freedom found,

Shall to thy happy coasts repair Blest isle, with matchless beauty crowned, And manly hearts to guard the fair.
