Australia, to the people,
Who groan in every land,
Would send a friendly greeting,
Would give a brother’s hand:-
Would bid them their great miseries
Forget a little while,
And learn that in her affluent land
They may both live and smile.

Come then, ye sufferers of the Earth,
Australia bids you haste,
To make your homes within her wilds,
Your cities in her waste:-
Come, for here Abundance spreads
A table for the poor –
And says, in blessing o’er their heads,
Ye Mourners, mourn no more!

HALLORAN, HENRY - Australia's Welcome
