O CANADA - Original version


O Canada! Our home and native land!
True-patriot-love in all thy sons command
With glowing hearts we see the rise,
The true North, strong and free
And stand on guard, O Canada,
We stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, glorious and free,
We stand on guard, we stand on guard for thee,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee
O Canada! Where pines and maples grow,
Great prairies spread and lordly rivers flow
How dear to us they broad domain
From East to Western sea,
Thou land of hope for all who toil!
Thou true North, strong and free!
O Canada! Beneath they Shining skies,
May stalwart sons and gentle maidens rise,
To keep thee steadfast through the years
From East to Western sea,
Our own beloved native land!
Our true North strong and free!
Ruler Supreme, who hearest humble prayer,
Hold our Dominion Thy loving care
Help us to find, O God, in Thee,
A lasting, rich reward,
As waiting for the Better Day
We ever stand on guard.
