Welcome to my island,
this is home sweet home to me,
I found what I've been lookin' for,
nevermore I'll cross the sea;
Those foggy, misty mornings,
and the gentle summer wind,
Seagulls in the harbour,
this island is my friend.

I take a look around me
at all the beauty there for me,
See the Long Range Mountains
reach down to meet the sea;
I know I'll always love this land,
and nevermore I'll roam,
Newfoundland and Labrador,
the place that I call home.

Welcome to my island,
it's home sweet home to me,
A little piece of heaven,
that island in the sea;
With the cool Atlantic breezes
and the peaceful ocean foam,
Welcome to my island,
the place that I call home.

If I ever left this island,
I know I'd never find,
Peace and beauty of this land
that I would leave behind;
Those little fishin' villages
all along the coast,
And the warm and friendly faces
is what I would miss the most.

Welcome to my island,
it's home sweet home to me,
A little piece of heaven,
that island in the sea;
With the cool Atlantic breezes
and the peaceful ocean foam,
Welcome to my island,
the place that I call home.
Welcome to my island,
the place that I call home.
