Together we will rebuild !


Together we will pray for all those,
who so tragically lost their lives:
Together we will pray for those
who are injured and homeless.
God Bless and keep you all safe.



Down in the deep southern seas
Lies Australia, a country
Of extremes and contrasts
And wide borders oh so vast.


Today all Australia weeps
As millions of eyes sweep
To the South as fire scorches lands
 And the North where floods expand.


Thousands of fighters fought the fires
While others evacuated as floods grew higher.
Volunteers came from all races and attire.
They were the heroes, overworked and over tired.


Outpouring tears of anger and frustration
When the truth of the tragedy's creation
Gradually became known and revealed;
It was unbelievable, totally unreal.


Yet Australia is a country proud and true
United she stands and ready to pursue
The repairing of the scorched and flooded land;
Everyone come together, joining hand in hand.


From this outpouring of unconditional love
The sun will forever shine in the sky above
Australia as she lies in the deep southern seas,
Alive with dreams and contrasts and forever free.

God Bless and keep you strong in your resolve
to rebuild a new and better tomorrow. 

Together We will rebuild:

Together we will pray for all those,
who so tragically lost their lives:
