GUERNSEY - NATIONAL ANTHEM [With Lyrics]

The islands of GUERNSEY - the largest within the Bailiwick of GUERNSEY [smaller than the Bailiwick of JERSEY] are comprised of ALDERNEY [the most northerly and closest to the coast of France], SARK, HERM, JETHOU, LIHOU and BRECQHOU.
[BRECQHOU is a very small island located next to SARK - purchased by the BARCLAY Brothers who own amongst other things: the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph, Scotsman newspaper & Ritz Hotel - they spent some £60 Million in building their home - a mock gothic fort - on the island].

As JERSEY & GUERNSEY signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights ("ECHR") they were badly advised as they were NOT aware of the political & legal ramifications!

The BARCLAY Brothers used this lacuna/oversight to enforce Non FEUDAL DEmocratic powers over the FEUDAL "Crown Officers" of SARK that controls the law of BRECQHOU.

The FEUDAL Laws of JERSEY have not - as yet - been overseen as compatible with the ECHR.

Consequently, JERSEY suffers with a DEMOCRATIC DEFICIT in that its Constitution [many of its laws continue to be in French - yet the language spoken by Islanders is English] as NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE!

LYRICS OF NATIONAL ANTHEM
1. Sarnia; dear Homeland, Gem of the sea.
Island of beauty, my heart longs for thee.
Thy voice calls me ever, in waking, or sleep,
Till my soul cries with anguish, my eyes ache to weep.
In fancy I see thee, again as of yore,
Thy verdure clad hills and thy wave beaten shore.
Thy rock sheltered bays, ah; of all thou art best,
I'm returning to greet thee, dear island of rest.

CHORUS:
Sarnia Cherie. Gem of the sea.
Home of my childhood, my heart longs for thee.
Thy voice calls me ever, forget thee I'll never,
Island of beauty. Sarnia Cherie.

2. I left thee in anger, I knew not thy worth.
Journeyed afar, to the ends of the earth.
Was told of far countries, the heav'n of the bold,
Where the soil gave up diamonds, silver and gold.
The sun always shone, and "race" took no part,
But thy cry always reached me, its pain wrenched my heart.
So I'm coming home, thou of all art the best.
Returning to greet thee, dear island of rest.

CHORUS:
Sarnia Cherie. Gem of the sea.
Home of my childhood, my heart longs for thee.
Thy voice calls me ever, forget thee I'll never,
Island of beauty. Sarnia Cherie.
