Lyrics

This is my island in the sun Where my people have toiled Since time begun I may sail on many a sea Her shores will always Be home to me (CHORUS) Oh, island in the sun Willed to me by my father's hand All my days, I will sing in praise Of your forest, waters Your shining sand

As morning breaks the heaven on high I lift my heavy load to the sky Sun comes down with a burning glow Mingles my sweat with the earth below (CHORUS) I see woman on bended knee Cutting cane for her family I see man at the waterside Casting nets at the surging tide (CHORUS) I pray the day will never come When I can't awake To the sound of drum Never let me miss carnivale With calypso songs philosophical (CHORUS)
