Australian National Anthem

Australian Flag

 

Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil;
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We’ll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing,
Advance Australia Fair.

New Zealand National Anthem

New Zealand flag

 

E ihowa atua,
O nga iwi matou ra
Ata whakarongona;
Me aroha noa
Kia hua ko te pai;
Kia tau to atawhai;
Manaakitia mai
Aotearoa.

God of nations! at Thy feet
In the bonds of love we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our Free Land.
Guard Pacific’s triple star,
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God defend New Zealand

הַתִּקְוָה


כָּל עוֹד בַּלֵּבָב פְּנִימָה
נֶפֶשׁ יְהוּדִי הוֹמִיָה,
וּלְפַאֲתֵי מִזְרָח קָדִימָה
עַיִן לְצִיוֹן צוֹפִיָה

עוֹד לֹא אָבְדָה תִקְוָתֵנוּ,
הַתִּקְוָה בַּת שְׁנוֹת אַלְפַּיִם,
לִהְיוֹת עַם חָפְשִׁי בְּאַרְצֵנוּ
אֶרֶץ צִיּוֹן וִירוּשָׁלַיִם.

Kol od baleivav penimah
Nefesh Yehudi homiyah
Ulfa’atei mizrach kadimah
Ayin leTzion tzofiyah

Od lo avdah tikvateinu
Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim
Lih’yot am chofshi beartzeinu
Eretz Tzion veYerushalayim.

ENGLISH LYRICS

As long as in the heart, within,
A Jewish soul still yearns,
And onward, towards the ends of the east
An eye still gazes toward Zion

Our hope is not yet lost,
The hope of two thousand years,
To be a free people in our land,
The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
