Sons and Daughters of Saint Lucia
The full lyrics of the Lucian Anthem
Sons and daughters of Saint Lucia,
love the land that gave us birth,
land of beaches, hills and valleys,
fairest isle of all the earth.
Where so ever you may roam,
love, oh, love our island home.
Gone the times when nations battled
for this ‘Helen of the West’,
gone the days when strife and discord
Dimmed her children’s toil and rest.
Dawns at last a brighter day,
stretches out a glad new way.
May the good Lord bless our island,
guard her sons from woe and harm!
May our people live united,
strong in soul and strong in arm!
Justice, Truth and Charity,
our ideal for ever be!
The currency is the East Caribbean Dollar.
