and how to pronounce it?

as in gin a favourite drink

or hard g like gunner
I've roamed and rambled and I've followed my footsteps
To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
And all around me a voice was sounding
This land was made for you and me

Ive always heard it said like

Gin ( hard g - rhymes with bin)

ging (soft g - as in the drink)

( actually - usually with the final g dropped was well.
