The National Anthem

Play Dominica National Anthem

Isle of Beauty

Isle of Beauty, isle of splendour,
Isle to all so sweet and fair,
All must surely gaze in wonder,
At thy gifts so rich and rare,
Rivers, valleys, hills and mountains,
All these gifts we do extol,
Healthy land, so like all fountains,
Giving cheer that warms the soul.

Dominica, God hath blest thee,
With a clime benign and bright,
Pastures green and flowers of beauty,
Filling all with pure delight,
And a people strong and healthy,
Full of Godly, reverent fear,
May we ever seek to praise thee,
For these gifts so rich and rare.

Come ye forward, sons and daughters,
Of this gem beyond compare,
Strive for honour sons and daughters,
Do the right, be firm be fair,
Toil with hearts and hands and voices,
We must prosper! Sound the call,
In which everyone rejoices,
"All for Each and Each for All".
