Motherland - Territorial Song of Montserrat

Written By: Sir Howard Fergus and Dr. George Irish


Oh Montserrat, proud Motherland
Your children raise your standard high.
In toil and tears to serve you well,
The emrald jewel from God’s hand.

Chorus: Oh Montserrat, by nature blest
To you your children sing
Come well or woe, come friend oh foe
To you your people cling.

Rise up and make our country great
With art and skill and sacrifice
With masque and drum we celebrate,
Triumphant masters of our fate.

We sing our land in harmony
May God be her eternal guard
And make Montserrat a house of hope,
A heaven in the Carib Sea.

No pestilence shall mar your shore
No fount of sadness overwhelm
A people striving under God
Their spirits free forevermore
