About 'Anthem Australia'

'With joyful voices let us sing Australia is our home.'


'In joyful strains then let us sing, Advance Australia fair.'

The phrase 'joyful strains' is old fashioned and, excuse the pun, a bit strained. If it is joy that we are expressing with our voices why not keep it simple and just say 'With joyful voices let us sing'.

What are we going to sing about? The phrase 'Advance Australia Fair' is unacceptable

Our home is worth singing about. It is central to our well being and no matter where we live in Australia be it a mansion, house, flat, tent, park bench or out in the bush under the stars, for better or for worse, it's our home today. It is the foundation of our joy, or our hope for joy.
