Isle of Beauty

 

Isle of beauty, isle of splendour,
Isle to all so sweet and fair,
All must surely gaze in wonder,
At thy gifts so rich and rare,
Rivers, valleys, hills and mountains,
All these gifts we do extol,
Healthy lands so like all fountains,
Giving cheer that warms the soul.

 

Dominica God hath blest
With a clime benign and bright,
Pastures green and flow’rs of beauty,
Filling all with pure delight,
And a people strong and healthy,
Full of Godly reverent fear,
May we ever seek to praise 
thee,
For these gifts so rich and rare.

 

Come ye forward, sons and daughters,
Of this Gem beyond compare,
Strive for honour sons and daughters,
Do the right be firm be fair,
Toil with hearts and hands and voices,
We must prosper! Sound the call,
In which everyone rejoices,
"All for Each and Each for All".

National Pledge

The National Pledge was written by Peter Israel.

 

"Before God and all mankind,
I pledge allegiance to the flag
of the Commonwealth of Dominica 
and to the Sovereign Republic for which it stands; 
my love, my loyalty and skills, 
in the service of Dominica and my fellow citizens. 
I promise to work diligently and to help build
a prosperous and peaceful Nation."
