One person sings the lead
The lyrics in BLOCK CAPITALS are to be sung by everybody.


There is an Isle
THERE IS AN ISLE
A bonny Isle
A BONNY ISLE
Stands proudly from
STANDS PROUDLY FROM THE SEA
And dear or far
AND DEAR OR FAR
In all this world
IS THAT DEAR ISLE TO ME

It is not that alone it stands
ALONE IT STANDS
When all around is fresh and fair
IS FRESH AND FAIR

BUT BECAUSE IT IS MY NATIVE LAND
AND MY HOME
MY HOME IS THERE

Farewell farewell
FAREWELL FAREWELL
Though lands may meet
THOUGH LANDS MAY MEET
May meet my gaze
MY GAZE WHERE ERE I BE
I shall not find
I SHALL NOT FIND
A spot so fair
A SPOT SO FAIR
AS THAT DEAR ISLE TO ME

It is not that alone it stands
ALONE IT STANDS
When all around is fresh and fair
IS FRESH AND FAIR

BUT BECAUSE IT IS MY NATIVE LAND
AND MY HOME
MY HOME IS THERE

THE ISLE
