My Guyana

My Guyana, El Dorado,
Best of all the world to me.
In my heart where'er I wander
Memory enshrineth thee.
All my hopes and aspirations
All my longings only tie
Everlasting bonds around us
As the fleeting years roll by.
My Guyana, time's unfolding
More and more thy destiny,
To redeeming in lasting splendor
All the years had lost to thee
And the dawning of thy glory
O'er the long, long night is cast,
Oh arise, triumphant glorious
From the ashes of the past!

Lyrics by Walter Mc A. Lawrence
