Norfolk Island

 

Norfolk Island, while under the administration of Australia, also has a local anthem, a hymn whose lyrics are directly quoted from the New Testament of the Bible (Matthew 25:34-36, 40).

The hymn is also known in Norfolk Island as the “Pitcairn Anthem” suggesting it was probably brought to the island with the settlers from Pitcairn Island in 1856, who may have used it as a local anthem there at the time.
