Land of Free


Hymne du Belize

Samuel Alfred Haynes Selwyn Walford Young


Song : Bb

Bb7 Eb Bb7 Eb Bb7
O, Land of the Free by the Carib Sea,
Eb Bb7 Eb
Our manhood we pledge to thy liberty!
G# Eb Bb7 Eb
No tyrants here linger, despots must flee
Bb F7 Bb7
This tranquil haven of democracy
Eb F7 Ebm
The blood of our sires which hallows the sod,
Brought freedom from slavery oppression's rod,
Eb Bb7
By the might of truth and the grace of God,
Eb Bb7 Eb
No longer shall we be hewers of wood.

Eb Bb7 Eb
Arise! ye sons of the Baymen's clan,
G# Eb Bb7 Eb
Put on your armour, clear the land!
G# Eb Bb7
Drive back the tyrants, let despots flee
Eb Bb7 Eb Bb7 Eb
Land of the Free by the Carib Sea!

Eb Bb7 Eb
Nature has blessed thee with wealth untold,
Bb7 Eb
O'er mountains and valleys where prairies roll;
G# Eb Bb7 Eb
Our fathers, the Baymen, valiant and bold
Bb F7 Bb7
Drove back the invader; this heritage hold
F7 Bb7 Ebm
From proud Rio Hondo to old Sarstoon,
Ebm Bb7
Through coral isle, over blue lagoon;
Eb Bb7 Eb Bb7
Keep watch with the angels, the stars and moon;
F Bb7 Eb
For freedom comes tomorrow's noon.
