They went sailing, they went sailing,
Far across the raging sea,
There to set their people free,
They went flying, they went flying,
Through the dark and dangerous skies,
In answer to their peoples cries.
They went marching, they went marching,
Through boggy marsh, and rocky slopes,
To fulfil an Island peoples hopes.
We are waiting, we are waiting,
For our saviours to appear,
Hope in our hearts, and many a tear,
We are praying, we are praying,
To keep you are safe in body and mind,
We your loved ones left behind.
Our flag is flying, our flag is flying,
Once again our Islands free,
To love and live our destiny.
We will remember, we will remember,
Those who fell, and those who went,
Heal their injuries, make their minds content.
