DT Lyrics:

Subject: Lyr Req: Golden Star of Freedom
From: GUEST,David Love
Date: 29 Oct 15 - 12:59 PM

I have just tracked down The Song of the Jolly Roger, successfully identified in a separate thread. I sang this as a 10 year old at school around 1967. In the same concert we also sang another song which I think was called The Golden Star of Freedom. I can't track down any information about this song and wonder if it rings a bell with anyone. There were 3 verses and this is what I can remember:

Shine through the night.
Shine on where the stars are rifted (?)
We'll follow the light
That beckons far away.
Dauntless and gay, our loyal hearts uplifted
We'll follow the golden star of freedom.

Brave pioneers
Who sailed when the nights were falling
They showed us the way
In epic bygone years.
Hark what they say, across the ages calling
We'll follow the golden star of freedom.

'though winds may blow
And strong timbers yield and sever
Skies thunder above
And breakers crash below.
Ours is the love that welcomes high endeavour
We'll follow that golden star forever.

I'm sure I've rewritten some of this but any information and/or corrections would be welcome. Thanks.
