Wild Rose! sweet rose, your beauty charms the heart,
Your flowers hail the nation's growing cheer,
The leaves unfold to welcome childhood's part
In blooming peace as signaled over here.
While sunshine gleams with kindness on the way,
Both rose and robin prize their mutual care,
With fitting high lights to adorn the day
Encircling glory sparkles in the air.

Since bird and rose are dear, their joy encores
Our own fair country's progress on the wing,
"All For Good Will" exchanged as knowledge scores,
A happy land of fellowship to ring: --
Ambassador of love, the world-wide rose,
With friendship's call we thrive, our future glows.
