O, Land of the free by the Carib Sea
Our manhood we pledge to thy liberty
No tyrants here linger, despots must flee
This tranquil haven of democracy
The blood of our sires which hollows the sod
Brought freedom from slavery oppression’s rod
By the might of truth and the grace of God
No longer shall we be hewers of wood

Arise! Ye sons of the Baymen’s clan
Put on your armour, clear the land!
Drive back the tyrants, let despots flee
Land of the free by the Carib Sea!

Nature has blessed thee with wealth untold
O’er mountains and valleys where prairies roll
Our fathers, the Baymen, valiant and bold
Drove back the invaders of this heritage hold
From proud Rio Hondo to old Sarstoon
Through coral isle, over blue lagoon
Keep watch with the angels, the stars and moon
For freedom comes tomorrow’s noon

Arise! Ye sons of the Baymen’s clan
Put on your armour, clear the land!
Drive back the tyrants, let despots flee
Land of the free by the Carib Sea!
