Music Andrew Alexander, 1935
Adopted 1939
Until 1943

The State Anthem of the Democratic Republic of Cygnia was introduced during the Great Australian War on 15 March 1939, replacing The Internationale as the official anthem of the Democratic Republic of Cygnia. The lyrics were written by Gabriel Robson (1913–2009) and the music was composed by Andrew Alexander (1883–1946). The Anthem was unofficially banned in 1943 after the Cygnian Revolution and then formally relinquished in 1946, when the current Cygnian Constitution came into force, dissolving the Republic, establishing the present Cygnian state and prohibiting performance of the anthem as well as the display or use of any Republic symbols unless for educational or historical purposes.

The Anthem was written deliberately with the same chord structure as Song of the Swan, the national anthem of the former Empire, to symbolically represent the total domination of Republic over monarchy. Song of the Swan was re-adopted following the establishment of the Second Empire in 1946.

Lyrics

United forever in friendship and labour,
Our mighty Republic shall ever endure.
Our glorious nation shall live through the ages,
The dream of a people, their fortress secure.

CHORUS
Long live our Cygnian motherland, built by the people's mighty hand.
Long live our people, united and free!
Strong in our friendship tried by fire! Long may our golden flag inspire,
Shining in glory for all men to see!

Through days dark and stormy where Heller did lead us
Our eyes saw the bright Sun of freedom above!
And he our leader with faith in the people,
Inspired us to build up the land that we love.

CHORUS
Long live our Cygnian motherland, built by the people's mighty hand.
Long live our people, united and free!
Strong in our friendship tried by fire! Long may our golden flag inspire,
Shining in glory for all men to see!

We'll fight for the future, destroy the invader,
And bring to our homeland the laurels of fame!
Our glory shall live in the memory of nations,
And all generations will honour her name!

CHORUS
Long live our Cygnian motherland, built by the people's mighty hand.
Long live our people, united and free!
Strong in our friendship tried by fire! Long may our golden flag inspire,
Shining in glory for all men to see!
