lyrics

Jacob bless this mighty earth we have been given
Rejoice! For glory brought us our homeland
With all the beauty in our forests, hills, and mountains
Rejoice! For our surroundings, bold and grand
From the Oceans to the Cliffside
From the Mesa to the caves
For we’re proud our nation’s steeped in mystic history
Land that we love, the Island always saves

Sing praise to the Heart of the Island
The source of electromagnetic pull
Healing powers so sublime and traveling through time
While always keeping us invisible
From the Coastline to the Black Rock
To the Jungle where the Monster seems to roam
Though everything seems to be a mystery
No matter what, the Island is my home

We pledge our souls to all that came before us
Who fought for freedom on our Motherland
Praise to Desmond, Kate and Jack, who killed the Man In Black
So we could settle on this splendorous sand
From the North Point to the Hydra
From the Temple down to the catacombs
Though everything seems to be a mystery
No matter what, the Island is my home
