The Ecstacy of Gold

As the sun sets over the mountain,

As the sun sets over the mountain, Crowning this miraculous country,

As the sun sets over the mountain, Crowning this miraculous country, Wreathing it in purest gold,

As the sun sets over the mountain, Crowning this miraculous country, Wreathing it in purest gold, Visions of absent glory

As the sun sets over the mountain, Crowning this miraculous country, Wreathing it in purest gold, Visions of absent glory Cleave to the luster hanging,

As the sun sets over the mountain, Crowning this miraculous country, Wreathing it in purest gold, Visions of absent glory Cleave to the luster hanging, Suspended above the contours

As the sun sets over the mountain, Crowning this miraculous country, Wreathing it in purest gold, Visions of absent glory Cleave to the luster hanging, Suspended above the contours Of this majestic empire

And by the light of that brilliant corona,

And by the light of that brilliant corona, Enduring the blameless and bitter dust of time,

And by the light of that brilliant corona, Enduring the blameless and bitter dust of time, A delicate mirage emerges,

And by the light of that brilliant corona, Enduring the blameless and bitter dust of time, A delicate mirage emerges, Chronicling the last vestiges

And by the light of that brilliant corona, Enduring the blameless and bitter dust of time, A delicate mirage emerges, Chronicling the last vestiges Of the valorous heroes who came before,

And by the light of that brilliant corona, Enduring the blameless and bitter dust of time, A delicate mirage emerges, Chronicling the last vestiges Of the valorous heroes who came before, Who influence our proud and dignified march.

And where a ceremony awaits -

And where a ceremony awaits - Beyond the scope of that western realm,

And where a ceremony awaits - Beyond the scope of that western realm, Beyond the reach of that bleeding sun

And where a ceremony awaits - Beyond the scope of that western realm, Beyond the reach of that bleeding sun Into which silhouettes now fade -

And where a ceremony awaits - Beyond the scope of that western realm, Beyond the reach of that bleeding sun Into which silhouettes now fade - To laurel today's new hero with a crown

And where a ceremony awaits - Beyond the scope of that western realm, Beyond the reach of that bleeding sun Into which silhouettes now fade - To laurel today's new hero with a crown Of golden light,

And where a ceremony awaits - Beyond the scope of that western realm, Beyond the reach of that bleeding sun Into which silhouettes now fade - To laurel today's new hero with a crown Of golden light, So too awaits the ecstatic promise

And where a ceremony awaits - Beyond the scope of that western realm, Beyond the reach of that bleeding sun Into which silhouettes now fade - To laurel today's new hero with a crown Of golden light, So too awaits the ecstatic promise Of a brand-new, untamed world.
