To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled. The humble petition of undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth-

That we believe Reference to God should be made in the National Anthem, as Australia is considered to be a Christian Nation and therefore we believe inclusion of His name in appropriate and desirable.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that the last line of each verse of the National Anthem be altered to read; In joyful strains then we all sing God Bless Australia Fair.

And your petitioners, as in duty bound, will ever pray.
