"Unity is Strength" is an Australian patriotic song, sung to the tune of "The March of the Men of Harlech", used to promote and celebrate the federation of the colonies in Australia Lyrics: Come Australians! Once for ever Break the bars that now dissever Brothers, to be parted never, Unity is Strength! Be no longer disunited, By no phantom be affrighted Let Australia's wrongs be righted, Unity is Strength! All the divisions ended, Each by all defended! One our land And future grand, And one the flag that's o'er us, One in race and one in story, One power and one in glory, One in all that makes a nation, Unity is Strength! See Victorians, all are waiting Now with fervor unabating. Let there be no hesitating, Unity is Strength! South Australia, nobly leading New South Wales, the call, too heeding Wave provincial far receding Unity is Strength! Answers back Tasmania Vote yes for Australia Queensland too, relies on you And West Australia's calling Union offers -- will ye flout it? Now your answer -- who dare doubt it? To the wide world, we will shout it! Unity is Strength! Australia's sons and daughters, all o'er us. From the Grand Old Land that bore us, Peals the patriotic chorus! Unity is Strength! See the Scotch, the Welsh, the English, Ole time feuds and strife extinguish; Irelands, sons, now too, distinguish, Unity is Strength! Scorn, then, ways provincial Rise to Life Imperial, Land of Light And progress bright No more shall strife degrade her, Strong for War, should foes invade her Great in Peace, if peace should aid her Thus we pledge our loved Australia Unity is Strength!
