Rhodesia, my beloved land
I wish to take you by the hand,
Back in time when all was right
No sorrow, pain or desperate plight

Growing up in God’s given land
Where sun shone bright and we were free
To laugh and play without a fear
With friends we cherished and kept near

How times have changed, how evil grows
To wipe away all we have known,
To take our family and our friends
To lands so far across the sea

To leave us in our Autumn years
With heavy hearts and uncertainty
In foreign lands, so strange to us
With people who are unbeknown.

We struggle on, thinking back
Longing for a time that’s past,
For someone came and took away
Our beloved RHODESIA
