Song of the Swan is the national anthem of Cygnia, adopted in 1811 as the anthem of the Empire of Cygnia, and adopted again in 1946 as that of the Second Empire after the fall of the Republic. Song of the Swan was originally written by Francis Herbert Scott in 1803 as a patriotic poem, and was set to music by Arthur Callaway in 1810 for use as Cygnia's new national anthem.


Great Swan, rejoice! We forever cherish thee;
Thy grace and thy splendour, is envy of all that see!
O thy clear waters and golden soils are products of thy glory,
Thanks to thee, our land shall last for all eternity!

Great Swan, defend our waters now and forever!
Great Swan, protect thy people, relieve us of our fear!
Great Swan, lead us with a fair and righteous hand;
Great Swan, sing thy glorious song and forever guard our land.

Beneath the Southern Cross, Great Swan, we toil with hearts and hands.
Our hearts are thine, our minds are one, as we build our Nation, grand!
Great Swan, protect our sacred, beloved motherland,
And sing thy noble, rousing call and revive our tired bands.


Sing thy song, O sing thy song... O precious Swan, for thee we shall always stand!
