Canada Day *
From Grand Banks’waters to Haida Gwai
Where Pacific breakers roar,
From Erie’s shore to our arctic seas
Beneath the midnight sun,
Throughout this broad Dominion
A new day has begun.
Glorious northern dawn:
Bold panoply of colours,
Majestic and serene;
Composed of different races
Diverse creeds and dreams;
May your light shine forever in our nation, proud and free;
Chorus of many cultures, voices from distant lands,
Let us sing together in peaceful harmony
O’ Canada our own dear land
From sea to sea to sea.
O’ Canada: We stand on guard for thee.
*I suggest that an assembly of the many different ethnic and cultural groups singing the above as a choir would make a fine presentation on Canada day.
