Glide along Glamorgan's Coast, Tobago

 

A Nation New Is Born

By G. Carlton Sampson

 

Wave sugarcanes wave
Palm-trees sway your crowns
Immortelle, frangipani, poui
Put on your floral gowns
Make gay the roadsides and the hills
Independence our people fills
A nation new is born.

You local birds pour forth your songs
Oh Semp and Acravat make glee!
You Bluebirds chirp, Hummingbird Birds hum
Sing out O Keskidee!
Make gay the roadsides and hills
Independence our people fills
A nation new is born!

Calypsonians sing an anthem
Of your sunny land and seas
Steelbandsmen beat out a road-march new,
About our tropical trees
Make gay the roadsides and hills
Independence our people fills
A nation new is born!

Trinidad and Tobago
Show forth your spirit of glee
Trinidad and Tobago
Your people shall be free
Leap to the road-march
Shout to the hills
For independence our country fills
A nation new is born.

Hail the sun rise, blessed morn
Whereon new hopes and joys are born
Of mixed and varied peoples
Determined to be one.
Sing out your praise O people free
With chimes and joyous revelry
For independence our country fills
Our nation new is born.
