1. Oh there’s a lovely island in the Caribbean Seas
    With cocoa, citrus, coconut and fine banana trees
    There’s arrowroot and sugarcane a waving in the breeze
    St. Vincent is its name{{more}}

REFRAIN

We’re out to build a new St. Vincent
We’re out to build a new St. Vincent
We’re out to build a new St. Vincent
The future’s in our hand

2. We must learn to kill our country’s pests and rid her of their blight
    And while against these deadly foes
    We earnestly will fight
    We’ll not forget the other pest
     More deadly in their might
    That spoils St. Vincent’s name

3. The hate we bear within our hearts the grudge that never ends
    The envy, greed and selfishness, the pride that never bends
    The ugly self that keeps us back from saying “let’s be friends”
    These spoil St. Vincent’s name

4. God has a plan for everyone, for me as well as you
    To rebuild this little island till it’s altogether new
    So men and women boys and girls there’s work for us to do
    To build St. Vincent’s name
