For we are one1 and free
We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
Our home is girt by sea:
Our land abounds in nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare,
In history's page let every stage
Advance Australia fair,
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia fair.
 
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross,
We'll toil with hearts and hands,
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands,
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share,
With courage let us all combine
To advance Australia fair.

前進澳洲美之國

澳洲人等我哋歡笑
我哋一體同自由
我哋有肥沃嘅土地值得耕種
我哋嘅屋企被海圍住
我哋有大量大自然嘅禮物
佢哋靚、豐富又罕有
喺歷史嘅一頁等每個階段
令到靚嘅澳洲向前行
等我哋喺歡呼之中一齊唱
靚嘅澳洲向前行
喺耀眼嘅南十字星之下
我哋並肩作戰
為咗令到我哋嘅聯邦
全世界都知佢個名
哩度有無窮無盡嘅原野
俾山長水遠嚟嘅移民
等我哋勇敢咁聯手
令到靚嘅澳洲向前行
等我哋喺歡呼之中一齊唱
靚嘅澳洲向前行
 
Thanks!
