I Pledge My Heart

Words by Victor S. Reid/Music by Gustav Holst

I pledge my heart forever
To serve with humble pride,
This shining homeland ever,
So long as earth abide.

I pledge my heart this island
As God and faith shall live,
My work, my strength, my love
And my loyalty to give.

O green isle of the Indies,
Jamaica strong and free,
Our vows and loyal promises,
O heartland ‘tis to thee.
