1. Rouse ye, men who freedom boast;
Save our land!
Save our land!
Marshall all your mighty host;
Save our land!
Save our land!
Trembling now on ruin's brink,
Save it from the scourage of drink,
Lest in shame it deeper sink;
Save our land!
Save our land!

2. From its stong and crafty foes,
Save our land!
Save our land!
Who our righteous cause oppose;
Save our land!
Save our land!
Millions have been captive led,
Here where freedom's sons have bled;
Millions more are with the dead;
Save our land!
Save our land!

3. Church of God, from slumber wake;
Save our land!
Save our land!
By thy might oppression break;
Save our land!
Save our land!
Save our homes from sorrow's might;
Save our youth from error's blight;
Raise the standard of the right;
Save our land!
Save our land!

4. Men of courage, from this thrall:
Save our land!
Save our land!
Answer to your country's call;
Save our land!
Save our land!
Light the camp-fires burning low,
Close the ranks and forward go;
On, to victory o'er the foe;
Save our land!
Save our land!
