O Canada, my country vast and free,
Dower'd art thou by Nature lavishly.
All the wealth is thine of stream and hill,
Of forest lake and plain;
Thine the fruitful soil that freemen till
And treasure of the main.
O land beloved, whate'er betide,
For home and Empire stand with God thy guide,
For home and Empire stand with God thy guide.
O Canada, no sordid dream beguiled
Thy pioneers to seek the forest wild.
With devoted hearts and purpose pure
Their lives they gave to thee,
That thy broad domain, from foes secure,
Should Freedom's dwelling be. [Chorus]
O Canada, with boundless faith in thee,
Thy people hail thy glorious destiny.
May the circling years thy pow'r expand,
Thy sway and fame increase;
May thy loyal sons united stand
For brotherhood and peace. [Chorus]
