Here you will find the Poem At The Beating Of A Drum of poet Henry Lawson
Fear ye not the stormy future, for the Battle Hymn is strong, And the armies of Australia shall not march without a song; The glorious words and music of Australia's song shall come When her true hearts rush together at the beating of a drum. We may not be there to hear it ? 'twill be written in the night, And Australia's foes shall fear it in the hour before the fight. The glorious words and music from a lonely heart shall come When our sons shall rush to danger at the beating of the drum. He shall be unknown who writes it; he shall soon forgotten be, But the song shall ring through ages as a song of liberty. And I say the words and music of our battle hymn shall come, When Australia wakes in anger at the beating of a drum.
