Anthem Lyrics English

Isle of beauty, isle of splendour,

Isle to all so sweet and fair,

All must surely gaze in wonder

At thy gifts so rich and rare.

Rivers, valleys, hills and mountains,

All these gifts we do extol.

Healthy land, so like all fountains,

Giving cheer that warms the soul.



Dominica, God hath blest thee

With a clime benign and bright,

Pastures green and flowers of beauty

Filling all with pure delight,

And a people strong and healthy,

Full of godly, rev'rent fear.

May we ever seek to praise Thee

For these gifts so rich and rare.



Come ye forward, sons and daughters

Of this gem beyond compare.

Strive for honor, sons and daughters,

Do the right, be firm, be fair.

Toil with hearts and hands and voices.

We must prosper! Sound the call,

In which ev'ry one rejoices,

"All for Each and Each for All."

The ten stars represent the ten parishes of equal status, thus the equality of people. The green symbolizes the lush vegetation, the triple colored cross represents the sunshine, the main agricultural products (citrus and bananas) and the Carib people, the first inhabitants of the island; the black is a symbol of the rich black soil and African heritage.
