Lyrics

Take this sand, take this snow
Coopers Creek to Omeo
give glory, glory to the Lord.
Tiger snake, kangaroo,
Franklin-Gordon, Kakadu
give glory, glory to the Lord.

Chorus:
Ancient people, people new,
share the cross on midnight blue;
with arid hearts and desert seeds
Living water fill our needs.

Take this gold, take this reef
take this rock and take this beef
give glory, glory to the Lord.
take this coal, take this wool
take these prawns by the trawler-full
give glory, glory to the Lord.

Take this ore to make the steel,
take this wheat to make this meal
give glory, glory to the Lord.
take this woman, take this man:
an equal place, an equal plan
give glory, glory to the Lord.

Take this sand, take this snow
Cooper’s Creek to Omeo
give glory, glory to the Lord.
